Seahawks’ Pete Carroll: Fred Jackson is fine and will play vs. 49ers
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says running back Fred Jackson was not injured on Tuesday when he crashed his Corvette into a street sign and will be ready to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.
Jackson reportedly pulled out of the team’s facility too quickly and misjudged a turn, leading to the crash. He was not racing his car before the accident. No other players were involved in the incident. Jackson was issued a $175 ticket for inattentive driving, according to Condotta.
Carroll also said that Jackson discussed his accident with the team on Wednesday.
Thanks 2 everyone worried about me. I lost control of my car. My teammates, including Marshawn, stopped 2 check on me. They weren't racin me— Fred Jackson (@Fred22Jackson) October 21, 2015
The Seahawks (2–4) will face the 49ers (2–4) on the road at Levi’s Stadium at 8:25 p.m. ET on Thursday night.
