Bills tailback Jackson likely done for rest of season


Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson left the field late in the fourth quarter Sunday, and it looks like that'll be his last exit of the season.

Jackson injured his right knee in the loss to the St. Louis Rams, marking his third injury of the season that has resulted in missed time on the field.

Bills coach Chan Gailey told WGR 550 Sports Radio Monday that Jackson would miss "a minimum of two to three weeks."

With that, Gailey will again be forced to give the bulk of touches out of the backfield to C.J. Spiller, something he's been very reluctant to do despite Spiller being one of the most explosive tailbacks in the NFL.

“We’ll play C.J. as much as he can play,” Gailey said. “Tashard (Choice) will rest him when he needs rest.”
