PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Former University of Oregon and NFL quarterback Joey Harrington was hit by a vehicle and seriously injured while riding a bicycle in Portland.

KATU-TV in Portland reports (http://bit.ly/pnq8bB) that family members said Harrington spent the night in intensive care at a Portland hospital after suffering a broken collarbone and punctured lung, among other injuries.

Portland police say Harrington was hit from behind just before 8:30 p.m. Sunday by a passing SUV driven by a 26-year-old man who remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. He was cited for following too close.

The 33-year-old Harrington led the Ducks to three bowl wins and played for four teams in eight years in the NFL.

Harrington had been scheduled to play in a charity golf tournament Monday.
