Fred Jackson has a concussion, won’t play Thursday

Clearly, Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is a prophet.

Hours after he said he wanted to see C.J. Spiller more,  those snaps are headed Spiller’s way by default.

Bills coach Chan Gailey just announced that Jackson suffered a concussion Sunday, and won’t play Thursday against the Dolphins, via the team’s official website.

This one wasn’t hard to figure, as Jackson left the game with a “head injury” and was described as having “concussion-like symptoms.”

Concussions usually cause those.

    Chan Gailey will find a way to get Choice into the game.

    Fitz just leaned on his staff and stroked his beard with a far away look in his eye, when the news came in.

    Why all you writers so ignorant about these concussion-like comments?

    Coaches aren’t doctors and therefore shouldn’t be making diagnoses.

    Chan Gailey: “Okay boys, were gonna give em a dose of Choice this game”

    CJ Spiller: “But what about me?”

    Chan Gailey: “I obviously hate you and you will get 5 touches, do what you can”

    Imagine if the Bills had an average defense: they would be at the top of the division.

    “Coaches aren’t doctors”

    And doctors haven’t even once studied health in the history of the field. THey know absolutely nothing about anythign besides selling you medicine that is proven to not work and to be a fraud. What makes you think these clowns have brain trauma studies down pat? They don’t and the majority of past players don’t complain about splitting headaches every second of their life. Most of them live normal lives after playing.

    I’m not a doctor or a coach, but when Fred was clearly knocked out cold laying face down on the turf, I turned in a diagnosis of a concussion of which I was 100% certain.

    Get well and get back soon Action Jackson.
