Shortly after losing their most versatile player — and a major component of their offense — the Bills quickly scoured the scrap heap to secure the best possible roster replacement. On Wednesday, the Bills placed running back Fred Jackson on injured reserve with a fractured right fibula. It was a strange turn of events for Jackson, who was ruled out for Sunday’s matchup against the Jets earlier in the day. He was originally though to have a minor calf bruise, but the writing was on the wall after coach Chan Gailey didn’t know whether or not he’d play again this season, admitting, “Fred’s not good.” It’s a tough break — literally — for F-Jax, the league’s third-leading rusher who was enjoying a breakout season with 1,376 yards from scrimmage and six rushing touchdowns. He was hoping to receive a new contract, feeling he outplayed his current deal, but that’s not going to happen now. He’ll first have to prove he’s healthy and can return to form before Buffalo breaks the bank. C.J. S
