Packers RB Josh Jacobs was involved in a dirt bike accident

The Green Bay Packers had an ultimate offseason, especially in free agency, but fans were intimidated heading into the weekend with their newest running back in Josh Jacobs.

YouTube music artist B. Lou appeared in a video with Jacobs, where the two were involved in a dirt bike accident. In the video that was Published to XJacobs appears to be riding an ATV and pulling B. Lou behind him on a dirt bike.

The two can only walk a few feet before we assume it’s B. Lou flips over and falls off the dirt bike.

Previous posts on X, including one of Dov Kleiman, suggested that Jacobs was the one on the dirt bike during the accident. However, Jacobs quickly headed to X to shoot that down.

Regardless, the video took over the Internet very quickly. Fortunately, it appears that neither Jacobs nor B-Lo suffered any serious injuries in the accident.

Josh Jacobs is Green Bay’s new hot running back

To say the start of free agency for the Packers has been an exciting few days would be an understatement.

The Packers made one of the most surprising moves of the early period of free agency, signing Jacobs to a four-year, $48 million contract. The signing appears to be giving the Packers a one-two punch in their backfield with Jacobs working alongside star running back Aaron Jones.

However, shortly after signing Jacobs, the Packers announced they would release Jones, who was one of the franchise’s all-time rushing leaders historically.

Now, it will be up to Jacobs to carry the load for the Packers. The 26-year-old has spent his entire career with the Las Vegas Raiders after being drafted by them in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Although he has seen ups and downs in his NFL career, he has already earned two Pro Bowl appearances and a first-team All-Pro selection in 2022 after leading the league with 1,653 rushing yards.

While he had a disappointing 2023 season with just 805 yards on just 3.5 yards per carry, Jacobs is hoping he can turn things around again and have another breakout season in 2024.

The rest of Green Bay’s backfield

With Jones now playing for the Minnesota Vikings, Jacobs won’t be the only player needing to step up with the Packers.

The Packers were able to bring back AJ Dillon on a four-year player qualifying contract to keep him in Green Bay for at least one season. However, given the short-term deal with the slim cap hit, Dillon isn’t even guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster by the time the regular season comes around.

Instead, the Packers may opt to rely on rookie Emmanuel Wilson, who worked his way onto the roster last season after an impressive preseason campaign. The 24-year-old made the most of his 14 regular-season carries, rushing for 6.1 yards per attempt, and could see an increased workload this season.

There’s also a chance the Packers draft again in the 2024 NFL Draft, but regardless of what happens, Jacobs is expected to handle the bulk of the carries this season.
