First off if this report is true, we hope FJax is safe and healthy. Second, I hope it’s not.

A TMZ article that came out Tuesday evening around 8pm eastern time says former Buffalo Bills and current Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson crashed his sports car into a stop sign while racing teammate Marshawn Lynch. The accident apparently happened not far from the team’s facility after practice with Jackson driving a black corvette while Lynch was behind the wheel of a red Dodge Charger.

The report goes on to say teammates including Richard Sherman stopped to try and help the running back out of the car. Seahawks’ staff then brought Jackson back to the team facility after police arrived and Lynch left unscathed.

This story is still developing and it is unknown whether or not Freddie is injured at all. Regardless, our thoughts and prayers are with #22!
