Report: Fred Jackson won't miss Week One

Folks in Buffalo can exhale.

(Actually, with T.O. still dealing with a bum t.o.e., maybe they shouldn’t completely empty their lungs.)

Running back Fred Jackson, the presumptive starter during the three-week suspension of Marshawn Lynch, isn’t expected to miss Week One’s Monday nighter against the Patriots.

Reports Adam Schefter of ESPN (who apparently has finagled a dispensation as to the Bristol Twitter policy):  X-rays on Fred Jackson’s thumb negative.  Deep bone and ligament bruise.  More important, ready for opener.

Jackson likely will share carries during Lynch’s absence with Dominic Rhodes, who signed with the Bills in the offseason.  Even after Lynch returns, Jackson figures to be a key component of the offense, periodically entering the game in order to keep Lynch fresh.

  1. jackson is not a full-time starter, sorry diehard your wrong. it dont matter anyway anyone who has watched preseason football has to have realized the bills look like a high school team compared to everyone else. time for Dick MORon to get the hell out, we need a coach with a VOICE, not some lay-down slapdick
