TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police say Arizona Cardinals rookie receiver Damond Powell Jr. was wounded by gunfire outside his Ohio home.

Toledo Police say the 22-year-old Powell was wounded in his driveway from shots fired from a car Friday evening. A University of Toledo Medical Center staffer said Saturday she had no information to release about him, but police had said his injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.

Police say witnesses reported seeing three men wearing masks in a gold-colored vehicle.

Powell was signed this year as a free agent wide receiver by the Cardinals after two years at the University of Iowa. He was a star football and basketball player at Toledo's Rogers High School.
