Earlier today, Leonard Fournette gave his fan base mini heart attacks when news broke of him being involved in a 3-car accident in Jacksonville hit social media.

The Florida Highway Patrol even thanked Fournette "for being a true professional".

"Leonard is OK and was able to drive home", Dickman tweeted early Tuesday afternoon.

There were no injuries from the three-car accident, according to WJXT's Ashley Harding. Fournette, who was in the third auto, was not at fault in the accident in which no one was injured.

A Jaguars spokesman said: "RB Leonard Fournette was involved in a minor accident today when his vehicle was rear-ended". He logged 1,342 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in his rookie season despite missing three games with injuries, and has added 197 yards and three scores in the two Jaguar's postseason victories.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are preparing to play against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship on Sunday.
