Fred Jackson "Not Ready Yet"

It appears that the Buffalo Bills will be without Fred Jackson on Sunday. Doug Marrone claims that the back is "not ready yet." If he doesn't return this week, Jackson could play on Thursday Night Football in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fred Jackson has returned to practice, but it doesn't appear that he'll be ready to play the Kansas City Chiefs.

Head coach Doug Marrone said that Jackson is "not ready yet" when asked about his playing status per Mike Rodak of ESPN. The move isn't shocking as the team wants Jackson to be at 100 percent when he returns.

Buffalo will have a short week as they play on Thursday Night Football in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins. If Jackson doesn't play this week, it'll likely be to give him a few extra days of rest to prepare for the Dolphins.

If Jackson doesn't play this week, the Buffalo Bills will have Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown as their 1-2 punch at running back. Phillip Tanner could also be active for the Bills.
