Fred Jackson put on IR; out for year
The Buffalo Bills’ season took a major turn for the worse today with the news that star running back Fred Jackson is out for the year with a fracture to his fibula bone in his lower right leg.
Jackson has accounted for 40 percent of the Bills’ offense this season. The Jets’ defense ranks seventh in the NFL in yards allowed and shut down the Bills’ attack three weeks ago in a 27-11 New York victory.
The Broncos have been pretty lucky with their own injury situation this season, all things considered, and they keep getting lucky as key players for their stretch-run opponents get hurt. Jackson joins Jay Cutler and Matt Cassel, as well as a bunch of Chargers who are hurt. Could all that prayer be helping? I'm not saying, I'm just saying...
Anyway, I'll be in Buffalo for the December 24th Bills game, and this makes it more likely that I'll leave happy.
