Buffalo running back Fred Jackson is the MVP for the Bills this season. Let’s be honest, without Jackson, the 5-5 Bills could be 0-10. So hearts must have stopped watching Jackson go down with a leg injury last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins
For his part, Jackson says he’ll be fine and said it was simply a leg “bruise”. Head coach Chan Gailey is not so sure.
“He’s banged up, but we’ll have to wait and see,” said Gailey. “I don’t know if I can give you a good answer right now. He’s hurting and I doubt he would practice early in the week, but we hope to have him late in the week.”
Jackson was injured in the second half of the game and went to the locker room for x-rays on his right leg, which were negative. C.J. Spiller replaced Jackson and produced 2 yards on 3 carries.
Jackson has never missed a game in his 5 year career. This season, he has 934 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns, along with a career high 442 receiving yards.
His career high of 1062 rushing yards came in 2009.
