JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette escaped injury after he was involved in what authorities say was a minor three-car crash.

The team says the rookie’s car was rear-ended about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, and that he was not hurt. He was able to drive home after the crash.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Fournette was not at fault in the crash.
