Sunday feels like the last stand for this Bills’ season, which was such a great story in September.
Buffalo needs a win against the Jets, and they will have to do it without their best player. The Bills announced Wednesday that running back Fred Jackson will miss the Jets game because of his “lower right leg” injury.
It’s another depressing blow to a team that already lost cornerback Terrence McGee and wideout Donald Jones for the season this week.
This Bills squad didn’t have a great margin for error because of their struggling defense and overall lack of talent. It seems like injuries (and opposing defenses) have simply caught up to them.
UPDATE: The Buffalo News writes that Jackson could miss the rest of the season. Yikes.
Asked about it, Bills coach Chan Gailey said, “I don’t know about that. We’ll have to wait and see.”
