He said he was “heartbroken” after learning about testing positive just before the start of training camp.

Jackson went on to say that he sees getting vaccinated as a “personal decision” and doesn’t want to “dwell” on it at the moment.
“I’m just going to worry about that with my family. I’m going to keep my feelings to my family and myself. I’m focused on getting better right now. I can’t dwell on that right now – how everybody else feels. I’m just trying to get back into a great routine.”
