ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Bills running back Fred Jackson will miss the remainder of the regular season with a knee injury. He was hurt in the second half of the Bills loss to the Rams Sunday afternoon.
After his afternoon media availability Monday Bills head coach Chan Gailey discussed Jackson's situation and said it looks like he'll miss the remainder of the season.
"No. He is not going to make it. He is going to be out for the rest of the year. It looks like we'll put hin on injured reserve but let me hold off to see what is officially done. That looks like the plan. Yes."
Gailey confirmed that it was a sprained of the MCL. "Yeah. It is an MCL sprain is what I was told. Whatever grade that is that takes him three, four or five weeks to get back."
The Bills head coach was grateful the injury wasn't worse. "That is great. That is great. that it wasn't an ACL."
With the injuries it maybe time for the Bills to some decisions about putting players on injured reserve. "I think we are OK. We have some guys coming back. I do not know, Mark (Anderson) is going to try to do some stuff tomorrow. Maybe we can get him back. We get Aaron (Williams) back it looks like this week. So we are getting some guys back as well. We are still hopeful we will get Eric (Wood) back. Not this week, but maybe for the last two if we get fortunate. "
