Steven Jackson’s Dreadlocks Were on ‘Maternity Leave’
Fans watching the Rams-Chiefs preseason game last Friday may have noticed something different about Steven Jackson. The St. Louis running back was missing his trademark dreadlocks hanging out the back of his helmet. The story behind the missing dreads is actually pretty funny.
“The person that helps maintain my hair, she just had a baby,” Jackson told reporters Tuesday. “So I needed to tie it down to buy her some time to get back.
“This is just temporary,” he said, adding with a laugh, “Now we have a lot pressure on her to get back.”
Yeah, I’m not sure how I feel about the non-dread look. We’ve all gotten so used to the dreads it would be difficult to see a change. But if Jackson’s hair dresser doesn’t return to work in a timely fashion, may I suggest the Tiquan Underwood ‘do?
