Lamar Jackson Denies Leaving NFL Game To Avoid Pooping His Pants: I Didn’t Pull No Paul Pierce!
Lamar Jackson wants the world to know an emergency bathroom break was not the reason he left the field during his “Monday Night Football” game. On December 14th the Baltimore Ravens suited up to play against the Cleveland Browns. During the fourth quarter Lamar Jackson, who is the quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, left the game in a bit of a hurry and headed to the locker room. During his absence, many fans speculated online that the 23-year-old athlete rushed off the field to avoid pooping his pants.
I have so many Lamar Jackson questions.
1: If you’re cramping you don’t run.
2: if you’re cramping you go with a doc to get an IV.
3: You don’t go to locker room for cramps unless TERRIBLE, so terrible that you CANT RUN! pic.twitter.com/VFb2lH977P

Lamar Jackson did eventually return to the field and helped secure a win for his team. However, during a post-game interview, he denied that pooping had anything to do with his abrupt departure. Instead, the quarterback claimed he exited the game due to a cramp. He said,
“No, I was cramping, I didn’t pull no Paul Pierce! I didn’t pull a Paul Pierce!”

Paul Pierce admitted last year that he was briefly removed from game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals in a wheelchair because he had to poop and not due to an injury.

Even though Lamar Jackson has denied taking a bathroom break during his time off the field the damage has already been done. Many fans wasted no time in poking fun at both him and Paul Pierce on Twitter.
