Coming off a spectacular Sunday in Pittsburgh where he ran for over 100 yards and scored three touchdowns in the upset win, Jaguars sensational rookie RB Leonard Fournette is apparently uninjured after being a victim in a minor traffic accident Tuesday morning.
Fournette was apparently the passenger in his 2017 Mercedes Benz-Maybeck that was hit shortly before noon, as part of a three car chain reaction accident in the southbound lanes of Interstate 275 near the Dames Point Bridge near downtown Jacksonville. A woman in an SUV was cited for careless driving in the accident.
Fournette was not only okay after the accident, but was posing for pictures with people involved and even gave one of the first responders a cool momento of the accident:

The Jaguars later confirmed Fournette being involved in the accident at lunchtime Tuesday:
RB Leonard Fournette was involved in a minor accident today when his car was rear-ended.
Leonard is okay and was able to drive home.
Appreciate everyone that has reached out to check on him.

Then Tuesday afternoon, the Florida Highway Patrol tweeted out a message of thanks to Fournette for being willing to take pictures with a boy that in one of the other wrecked vehicles and also with the investigating trooper:

Fourentte is expected to not only be back in the building, but on the practice field for the Jags, when they resume preparation for the AFC Championship Game with New England on Sunday in Foxboro, MA. He seemed in good spirits from what we see in that photo above.
