Kiwanuka's brother 'stable' after accident, Giants GM Reese says

Benedict Kiwanuka, the older brother of New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, is in "stable" condition, a team official said, after sustaining a serious arm injury during a motorcycle accident last week in Indianapolis.

"He probably has a long road back," Giants general manager Jerry Reese told the *Newark Star-Ledger* on Monday. "But everything looked like it was going to work out for him. It sounds like (Benedict) is going to be OK."

Reese said the team assisted in treatment for Benedict, but Mathias wasn't injured in the crash and needed only emotional support. Mathias is expected to attend organized team activities this week.

According to Indianapolis police, the Kiwanuka brothers were riding separate motorcycles at high speed when a car pulled out of an apartment complex and 32-year-old Benedict struck it. He was thrown about 100 feet and taken to a hospital in critical condition, police said.

Mathias Kiwanuka, 27, didn't hit the car and wasn't injured. The car's driver had minor injuries.
