Bears WR Earl Bennett was involved in a car accident early Monday morning, according to reports, but Bennett tweeted that he's OK.

His car, which he calls "Ole Skool," was apparently totaled.

"Drunk guy ran into back of my ole skool we smashed into wall ole skool done!!!," Bennett tweeted. "But I'm alive that's all that matters."

Reports indicate that Bennett reported for workouts Monday at Halas Hall after making four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' win over the Bills on Sunday.

ESPNChicago.com is reporting that the Bears are looking into the accident.

"He's working out down there. He's fine," Bears head coach Lovie Smith said, per reports. "He was, from what I'm told, in an accident. … No issues.''
