Chargers draft LSU WR Byrd, who was hurt in accident

The Chargers selected LSU WR Demetrius Byrd in the seventh round (225th overall), one week after he was injured in a car accident. The Shreveport (La.) Times reports that Byrd has been upgraded from critical to good condition at a Miami hospital.

Byrd was a star for LSU’s national championship team in 2007, but he struggled last season. Before the accident, he was expected to be drafted between the fifth and seventh rounds.
