The Buffalo Bills have announced that running back Fred
Jackson will not play during the team’s Thursday night contest against the
Miami Dolphins, reports Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.
“It looks like Fred will be
out this week,” said Bills coach Chan Gailey. “The tests this morning were not
as good as we had hoped and he had hoped so he won’t play this week.”
Gailey confirmed that the team has diagnosed Jackson, who
left Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots with a head injury, with a
concussion. The running back was hit in the back of the head by the elbow of
Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes after catching a pass.
With Jackson sidelined due to the concussion, running back
C.J. Spiller will see a bulk of the carries against the Dolphins. He’s
certainly no slouch, as he’s had several big games in place of Jackson this
