Lamar Jackson checks on photographer he ran over

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson reached out to a photographer he ran into Sunday, and made an amazing discovery about the non-football players who surround football fields.

After colliding with Pittsburgh photographer Shelley Lipton at the end of a play last week, Jackson got in contact with her on social media to check on her condition.

They’re human beings, too,” Jackson said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. “We’re moving fast and get physical out there on the field and we’re coming full speed and she’s sitting down taking pictures. I know that kind of hurt. I had to make sure she was all right.”

Lipton got the shot (which you see here), which is her job.

She also wrote that she appreciated the Ravens quarterback picking her up, tweeting out “I hope his mom was watching.”

  1. I used to photograph NFL and seeing a 230 lb. back coming at you is a little scary. We hope that they are athletic enough to miss us. Glad she is ok.

  2. I hate it when people on the sidelines are run over and the player(s) act like they don’t give a darn. Players don’t mind seeing their picture on the covers of sports magazines, but seem to forget that the people surrounding the field are doing a job (in most cases) just like they are and that’s how the pictures, video and audio are obtained.

    Kudos to Lamar for being a class act.

    He seems like a good kid and I’m glad his passing game is silencing the guys that called him a one trick pony.

    Yeah let me know when he beats a good team. He’s a running back.

    Given your name you are either a disgruntled Bears fan or a fan or a Bears rival in the NFC North. I strongly recommend then that you watch an AFC North game to provide intelligent insight. The Ravens lost those games because the other team scored 33 points and 40 points. While the Ravens put up 28 and 25 which usually can win games. Lamar isn’t the reason they lost to “good” teams. The defense was.
