CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch weren't even drag racing when Jackson wrecked his car Tuesday afternoon.

TMZ Sports' story has quickly fallen apart. According to multiple eye witnesses, Jackson pulled out of the Seahawks' team facility a little too fast following practice and misjudged a sharp turn and crashed into a stop sign. Lynch simply was one of the teammates at the scene, along with several others. Jackson shouldn't face any legal or league discipline and is reportedly uninjured.

TMZ Sports reports Fred Jackson was injured Tuesday afternoon in a drag-racing incident with teammate Marshawn Lynch after practice.

TMZ's headline on Twitter reads: "Marshawn Lynch Drag Races Teammate, Fred Jackson Injured!" Inside the story, it doesn't mention anything about Jackson being hurt, so take this with a large grain of salt. It's still pretty evident that the teammates were up to no good leaving practice Tuesday, as there's a picture of Jackson's wrecked black Corvette smashed into a stop sign. Lynch allegedly left the scene after Jackson was scooped up by Seahawks staffers before police arrived.

Fred Jackson caught both of his targets for seven yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 loss to the Panthers.

Jackson’s season-high in touches is five. That’s not enough to warrant fantasy consideration. There’s no need to have him in your lineup or even on your roster at this point.
Oct 18 - 8:44 PM

Fred Jackson rushed twice for five yards and caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 loss to the Bengals.

The results weren’t there for Jackson, though he deserves a ton of credit for even suiting up a week after suffering a nasty high-ankle sprain. Just as he was Sunday, Jackson will be limited to third-down looks going forward.
Oct 11 - 5:50 PM

Fred Jackson (ankle) is active for Week 5 against the Bengals.

Jackson has made a miraculous recovery from the high-ankle sprain that sidelined him for most of Monday's win over the Lions. He won't get more than a handful of touches behind starter Thomas Rawls on Sunday. It's a bad matchup for both players as Cincinnati has allowed the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.
Oct 11 - 12:03 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Fred Jackson (questionable, ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals.

This might be a record recovery for a high-ankle sprain. This injury can often sideline players for up to six weeks. Jackson has logged just 15 touches this season and shouldn't be much of a factor behind bellcow Thomas Rawls on Sunday. Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) is expected to return next week.
Oct 11 - 8:44 AM

Fred Jackson (questionable, ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision.

Coach Pete Carroll said he expects Jackson to be active this week. Jackson should play through his high-ankle sprain, but is unlikely to be effective. Thomas Rawls will continue to get the majority of carries in place of Marshawn Lynch.
Oct 10 - 8:26 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Fred Jackson (questionable, ankle) is likely to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Jackson was upgraded to limited Friday, and is expected to play through his high-ankle sprain. Seattle is confident enough in Jackson's status that he'll make the trip to Cincinnati. With Marshawn Lynch out, Jackson should have a pass-protection role behind Thomas Rawls. This news removes some of the shine from Rawls' viability as a daily fantasy play in Week 5.
Oct 9 - 5:35 PM

Fred Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Bengals.

It's possible F-Jax will be available in case of emergency against the Bengals, but players who try to play through high ankle sprains generally aren't very effective. With Marshawn Lynch formally ruled out, Thomas Rawls should be the Seahawks' every-down back with FB Derrick Coleman changing the pace.
Oct 9 - 4:20 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said RB Fred Jackson has a high-ankle sprain.

The injury will likely sideline Jackson several weeks. The Seahawks are hopeful Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) will play this week. If he does not, Thomas Rawls would see a ton of work against the Bengals.
Oct 6 - 1:08 PM

Fred Jackson exited Monday night's Week 4 game against the Lions with an ankle injury.

Jackson was getting upfield when Lions DT Tyrunn Walker fell on the back of his legs with his entire body. Jackson is likely dealing with a significant sprain. Before leaving, Jackson ran for 21 yards on three carries and caught 2-of-4 targets for 33 yards. He was seeing increased snaps with Marshawn Lynch out.
Oct 5 - 10:21 PM

Fred Jackson rushed twice for 13 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the Bears.

After Thomas Rawls’ outburst Sunday, it’s clear the aging Jackson is a distant third on Seattle’s running back depth chart. Jackson’s fantasy value for Week 4 against the Lions will greatly hinge on the availability of Marshawn Lynch (hamstring).
Sep 27 - 8:11 PM

Fred Jackson had two catches for 16 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 2 loss to the Packers.

Jackson spelled Marshawn Lynch on third downs and was used in pass protection. He vultured a five-yard touchdown pass in the second half, but finished without any carries and lost a fumble on Seattle's final snap of the game. Jackson should continue to play a limited role behind Lynch in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 1:20 AM

Fred Jackson rushed for 13 yards on three carries and caught his lone target for 16 yards in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Rams.

Jackson was the clear No. 2 behind Marshawn Lynch, but clearly isn't going to have a big enough role to give him redraft value while Lynch is healthy.
