Bills RB Fred Jackson Expected Back for Sunday’s Game


Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said Thursday that, barring a setback, running back Fred Jackson should play in Sunday’s game versus the New England Patriots.

Jackson, who has missed the team’s last two games after spraining his knee in the season opener, has made it through back-to-back practices.

“Fred worked and worked well today (Thursday), and there didn’t seem to be any residual affect negatively from yesterday,” Gailey said.

While Jackson should be back, running back C.J. Spiller, who injured his shoulder in last week’s victory over the Browns, is less likely to take the field Sunday.

Spiller was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, and while he hasn’t been ruled out of Sunday’s game, he is more likely to come back next week.
