Former Redskin faces firearms charge

A former Washington Redskins player is facing a firearms charge after he accidentally shot himself last month in his Leesburg home.

Joshua L. Morgan, 30, now a free agent with the NFL, was cleaning the weapon on Jan. 31 when it went off about 9 p.m. at his Hillside Circle home.

Morgan was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

He was charged Feb. 4 with reckless handling of a firearm, according to Kraig Troxell, spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

A hearing for the misdemeanor charge is scheduled for March 9 in Loudoun County District Court.

Morgan also played for the Chicago Bears and the San Francisco 49ers.
