CLEVELAND (WJZ) – When Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson went missing against the Cleveland Browns late Monday night, fans began to speculate as to what led him to leave the field.
Some fans believed he left to go to the bathroom.
On Tuesday morning, Jackson tweeted, “Y’all trippin, I definitely didn’t take any [enter poop emoji]”

It was convulsions that ultimately sent him to the locker room, he said.
“I started to cramp up in the field,” said Jackson. “The two passes I threw just before those passes to Willie and Mark, the falls, I cramped my limbs.”
Jackson said his legs were starting to cramp up. He left the field and went to the locker room for treatment and stretching.
He returned in the fourth quarter after backup quarterback Trace McSorley was injured and the team apparently ran out of quarterback.
He also denied use of the bathroom during the post-game press conference:

“I had cramps,” he repeated when a reporter asked about the bathroom rumor. “I didn’t draw a Paul Pierce.”
