Leonard Fournette gave football fans a scare Tuesday when news surfaced that he had been involved in a three-car accident in Jacksonville ahead of the AFC Championship game against the Patriots.
The Jaguars star running back wasn’t at fault and thankfully walked away unharmed, but his Maybach was rear-ended and pushed into the car in front of him, got messed up.
But despite the damage to his whip, Fournette was in positive spirits, so he decided to pose for photos and autographed his bumper to give to a Highway Patrol trooper, who was a first responder:

The Jacksonville Jaguars advanced to the AFC Championship game for the first time since 1999 as they are set to take on the New England Patriots in Foxboro.
They will rely heavily on Fournette to help them take down the mighty Patriots and hopefully get to the team’s first Super Bowl in history.
