Chan Gailey: Fred Jackson will not Play Week 12
Alex Dunlap, Rosterwatch.com
After telling reporters yesterday that the Bills would take a “wait-and-see” approach to star RB Fred Jackson’s calf injury, today Head Coach Chan Gailey declared Jackson out against the Jets in Week 12.
Talk about a big hit. This is a team that was swirling down the toilet even with the best player on their roster healthy.
Now, the Bills will turn to the talented, yet underperforming C.J. Spiller to handle the bulk of the RB duties. Spiller has been getting more involved in the offense, but in less traditional roles, even lining up at WR. With this news, we will be giving Spiller a bump in our rankings, but do not expect anything near what Jackson would produce against a rapidly improving Jets Run D.
