Former New York Giants defensive back JoJo Nicolas was involved in a terrible two-car crash in Miami Beach on Tuesday. He was hospitalized with “severe injuries,” according to the Miami Herald.
Having heard the news, Nicolas’ former teammate and current Giants safety Antrel Rolle took to Twitter and Instagram to ask people to pray for the former Miami Hurricane.

Nicolas signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft. The former collegiate star was unable to beat out strong competition and was eventually cut that August.
The 24-year-old had tweeted Monday night that he was getting ready to go out and celebrate his 25th birthday with a friend at Mansion Nightclub in Miami Beach.

Lord please don't let me lose him over this. I couldn't deal
