Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson may have a physically tough exterior but proved Wednesday that he has a heart of gold.
Jackson told reporters that he reached out to the photographer he collided with on the sidelines of the Ravens game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. He was seen running from a defender when he was later driven and ran straight into the photographer on the sidelines.

The second-year star picked up the photographer, later identified as Shelley Lipton, and gave her a hug before gogging back to the hug.
"They are human, too," he told ESPN. “We move fast and get physical out in the field, and we get full speed and she sits down and takes pictures. I know that kind of hurt. I had to make sure she was okay. ”

Lipton, a Pittsburgh-area photographer, posted a photo on Twitter of Jackson stiff-linebacker TJ Watt before rushing away and into her.
