Leonard Fournette OK after minor car accident

Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette has come out OK after plenty of on-field collisions during games and the team says he did the same after an off-field collision on Tuesday.

Jaguars spokesman Tad Dickman announced that Fournette was in a minor car accident. Per the announcement, Fournette’s car was rear-ended by another vehicle and both Fournette and the car came through well enough to drive home after the incident.

Ashley Harding of WJXT reports, via the Florida Highway Patrol, that Fournette’s car was the third in a chain reaction caused when another vehicle hit the car behind him and not at fault.

Fournette shook off a first half ankle injury while running 25 times for 109 yards and three touchdowns to help the Jaguars beat the Steelers 45-42 last Sunday. Getting something similar against the Patriots would be a pretty big boost to Jacksonville’s chances of advancing to the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history.

  1. Word on the street is that Bill Belichck’s new personal assistant, Jeff Gillooly, was seen fleeing the scence

  2. Good luck. Derrick Henry’s longest run last week was 4 yards. he finished the game 12 carries for 28 yards. It’s going to come down to Jacksonville’s BB vs New England’s BB.

    Blake Brotles vs Bill Belichick.
    Who are you betting on?

  3. The Insurance CO will beg to differ. If the front of your car hits another car, their standing rule is you did not have control of the speed you were travelling at.Especially a rear end job.

    The other car would have had to wither cross a yellow line or run a stop sign/red light.

    Thems the rules…

    Glad he’s okay.

  4. With all other variables being legal, getting hit from behind is not your fault. Hitting someone from behind is your fault.

  5. Pats forever in everyone’s heads….LMAO

    Fournette could have trouble playing regardless. Those swollen ankles settle in after the rush wears off from playing.

  6. been touting Jags all year…see no reason to change now…should be a great game!
    Think the Jags will out physical the Patriots, and move Brady off his spot and out of his comfort zone, ala Coughlin…

  7. I wonder if the guy’s cell phone had a text message where he referred to himself as The Collider.

    😉

  8. Planes skidding off runways, cars hitting cars into other cars…
    Only fools would question the powers of Belichick the Great and Powerful!

    Just a heads up, we aint the Titans. And last I checked, the Pats give up 5+ yards a rush, and Jax is the #1 rushing team in the league. And if you sell out to stop the run, well just ask Pitt how that works out… just sayin.

    You ain’t the Titans, because you lost to them twice in one season. I’m just sayin’

  11. Steelers fans will somehow figure out a way to use this as an excuse for their loss yesterday.

    LOL
    The Jags are 2-3 vs playoff teams. Both of your wins were against the Steelers. You lost to the Titans twice and the Rams. The Pats have only allowed 6 rushing TD’s all season. That’s .37 TD’s per game. Good luck.

  13. I’m glad I got lots $$$$ on the Pats to win it all.. Everything always seems to go their way 🙂 Including the officiating!
