One of the biggest parts of the Bills offense is Fred Jackson, but it seems like it might be up in the air Sunday whether or not he’ll play. Bills running back Fred Jackson represents 40 percent of Buffalo’s offense, which has fallen on hard times the past three weeks. After sustaining what he called a leg “bruise” Sunday against Miami, Jackson insisted he’ll be fine, but head coach Chan Gailey wasn’t quite as sure on Monday. “He’s banged up, but we’ll have to wait and see,” said Gailey. “I don’t know if I can give you a good answer right now.
