Fred Jackson suffers hamstring injury

Fred Jackson became the second Buffalo Bills running back to suffer an injury that will keep him out of action for a few weeks.

Running backs are dropping like flies at Buffalo Bills training camp.

Anthony Dixon suffered a calf injury that could keep him out of action for the next month. LeSean McCoy dealt with toe swelling, but he’s back in action. On Friday, Fred Jackson suffered a hamstring injury.

The injury is expected to keep Buffalo’s veteran running back off the field for a few weeks. Unlike Dixon, Jackson’s roster spot is relatively safe this season as he projects to be the team’s No. 2 running back. In 2015, Buffalo hopes to cut Jackson’s snaps in half to keep him fresh.

In 2014, Jackson rushed for 525 yards on 141 carries, while catching 66 passes for 501 yards.

At tomorrow’s inter-squad scrimmage, Buffalo will have McCoy, Bryce Brown, Karlos Williams and Bronson Hill suited up at running back.
