Bills RB Fred Jackson spoke to Stevie Johnson since he was benched for his touchdown display and had the following comments on the whole situation.
“You know, he was told the next time we get a penalty like that we’d be sat the game,” said Jackson. “I don’t think he meant anything malicious by what he did, I think he was just wishing everybody a Happy New Year. But at the same time, he got a penalty for it and it hurt the team. So I think Chan did what he said he was going to do and I think everybody in the locker respects what he decided to do. I think Stevie obviously said he would take it back if he could. I don’t think anybody has any hard feelings toward him. We all have his back and we want him to do better in making those type of decisions and I think he will.”
With respect to Jackson’s personal conversation with Stevie, Jackson said Johnson told him he wished he could take it back.
“I had a conversation with Stevie and it was something he told me,” said Jackson. “Like I said, it wasn’t something he was doing to be malicious. It was just another touchdown celebration that he had.”
