Fred Jackson Out for Up to One Month

Buffalo lost Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller to injuries against the Minnesota Vikings. Jackson was told that his injury usually takes one month of rehab.

The Buffalo Bills will likely be without Fred Jackson for one month as he recovers from a groin injury.

Jackson appeared on WGR550, a local Buffalo radio station, to discuss his injury and provide a timeline for his return.

"It's typically a four-week injury, but we'll try to do some things to get it sped up. I like to think of myself as somebody that can come back before typical, so, it's just gonna be on me to get in there and rehab, and see the team doctors, and do what it is they want me to do and hopefully I can get back a lot sooner than that."

Jackson, 33, acknowledged that he didn't need surgery on his groin. In the past, Jackson has been able to return from injury sooner than expected. The Bills play the Jets this week and have a Week 9 bye. If he heals quickly, Jackson may be able to return for Buffalo's matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10. 

For the time being, the Bills will start Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown at running back. Dixon carried the ball 13 times for 51 yards against Minnesota. Brown has been inactive through the first six weeks of the season.
