NFL Injury Report:
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

Spikes hit RT @bytimgraham: Fred Jackson officially has a concussion and will not play Thursday night.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) November 12, 2012The Bills players can cry about how dirty he is all they want. The fact is, Spikes it not a headhunter or a dirty player. He's a hard hitter. He doesn't lead with his head and go right for people's heads (like Meriweather did...
According to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com, Bills running back Fred Jackson suffered a head injury during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots.
“I don’t know if they’re calling it a concussion,” said Gailey. “I don’t know what the word is. I don’t know if it’s a concussion or not. They didn’t tell me.”
We’ll have to wait and see how Jackson looks during the week...

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson has been cleared to play at Indianapolis this weekend after passing a series of NFL-mandated concussion tests.
Jackson says he felt good before practice Wednesday, and coach Chan Gailey added that he expects the running back to play Sunday. Despite having Jackson back, Gailey said C.J. Spiller will remain the starter and get a majority of...
While the Buffalo Bills have ruled running back Fred Jackson
(head) out for tonight’s game against the Miami Dolphins, C.J. Spiller (shoulder)
is probable to play and start for the injured Jackson according to the team’s
injury report. The Bills will also be without cornerback Aaron Williams (knee)
and defensive linemen Mark Anderson (knee) and Chris Kelsay (neck).
Bills head coach Chan Gailey announced that RB Fred Jackson has officially been diagnosed with a concussion and will not play against the Dolphins on Thursday, via BuffaloBills.com.
This obviously opens the door for C.J. Spiller who has looked incredible in recent weeks, but has been forced to split carries with Jackson. Theres always the chance that Jackson could be out multiple...

With the Dolphins playing the rivaled Bills this week, we decided to meet our enemy once again and did a short Q & A wit Joey Pinzone of Bloguins Buffalo Wins. Here are some of his thoughts on this weeks game.
1) Did The Dolphins get good news or bad news that Fred Jackson is missing ?
I think a little of both. Fred is a great back...
Mired in their longest slide of the season, perhaps the last thing the Buffalo Bills need is to be without one of their top players while trying to end their recent struggles against the Miami Dolphins.
Minus running back Fred Jackson, the Bills look to snap a three-game skid Thursday night against the visiting Dolphins, who will try to avoid a third straight defeat.
It’s time for a confession:I kind of wish the Buffalo Bills had won Sunday’s match-up against the New England Patriots, if only because of their second half play. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 27 of 40 attempts for a total of 337 yards,while Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both continuously made something out of nothing. Jackson finished with 80 yards rushing and 4 catches for 35...
Colts def. Jaguars: After a big win against Miami last week, Indianapolis proved they were mature enough to continue the winning streak. However, the Jaguars made it easy for them. This game just proved that Jacksonville is opperating without a quarterback, and will probably be selecting one with a top 5 pick next draft. The second AFC Wild Card spot is now officially the Colts...

Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Not the best result for the Bills over the weekend but I think we can all agree that we saw some progress out of the team. With the game in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hands, Buffalo just couldn’t finish the game off.
Should Bills fans be...
The Buffalo Billswill play without Fred Jackson against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night after the running back suffered a concussion in the final minutes of Sunday's 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots.
More than a few Bills players are fuming over the play on which Jackson was injured, specifically the extracarricular antics of Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes, who...
