"I had my seatbelt on so I wasn't really anxious".
On Tuesday, two days after the Jaguars shocked the Steelers to advance to the AFC title game, the Jaguars' rookie running back was involved in a auto accident that totaled his 2017 Mercedes Maybach, but didn't result in any injuries.
It is encouraging to see that Fournette was able to laugh at the situation despite claims of sabotage by the Steelers from Jaguars fans. The Jaguars will need him to be at his best for an AFC Championship showdown with the New England Patriots. Know what I mean? "It was cold.' Things like that". Fournette said he wasn't sure how much damage was caused to the auto. "Just making sure everybody was all right and everybody was in great health".
According to WXJT 4 News, the woman who rear-ended Fournette has been cited with reckless driving.

After the accident, per WJXT, Fournette signed the bumper of his 2017 Mercedes-Benz Maybach and gave it to a first responder.
Fournette rushed for 109 yards - his fifth 100-yard game of the season - in Jacksonville's 45-42 upset at Pittsburgh last Sunday.
'I wasn't really anxious about it, ' Fournette told about the fender-bender.
He came out of nowhere and was like, can you sign this for me? The Steelers failed to stop him at the goal line.More news: McIlroy feeling 'a little different' but happy with injury return
