PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- State police say Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek was a passenger in a car involved in an early-morning DUI crash.

No one was hurt in Thursday morning's crash on a highway off-ramp near the team's stadium in South Philadelphia.

Police say the car's driver was driving too fast when he spun out and hit a concrete barrier around 2:30 a.m. The driver failed field sobriety testing and was arrested on DUI charges.

Celek turned 27 on Wednesday. He caught 62 passes for the Eagles last season, including five touchdown catches.

A team spokesman did not immediately return a phone message left Thursday morning.
