A LOT ON THE LINE Ricky Jean Francois warms up yesterday at Gillette Stadium as the Patriots prepare to face the Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game

In fact, it was a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers that hit him.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief after rookie running back Leonard Fournette was involved in a fender-bender just days after their victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Divisional Round.

Fournette's bumper of his 2017 Mercedes-Benz Maybach fell off, which he autographed and gave to one of the first responders.

According to WXJT 4 News, the woman who rear-ended Fournette has been cited with reckless driving.

"I don't know. The bumper is like $50,000 by itself", Fournette said. They were from Pittsburgh. The rookie back was also involved in a minor auto accident on Tuesday, but he's expected to be okay. Fournette said he wasn't sure how much damage was caused to the auto.

RB Leonard Fournette was involved in a minor accident today when his vehicle was rear-ended.

"Leonard is OK and was able to drive home", the team said in a statement. 'Appreciate everyone that has reached out to check on him'.

The Florida Highway Patrol posted a picture of Fournette at the crash scene posing with a state trooper.

The Jaguars, in the National Football League playoffs for the first time in a decade, will travel to reigning champions the New England Patriots on Sunday to determine who will be the AFC's representative in Super Bowl LII.
