It’s hard to imagine a worse start to the season than what took place on Saturday for the Buffalo Bills. After watching both Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch go down with injuries in a 42 – 17 blowout loss to the Redskins, the Bills no longer have any depth on their roster. On the bright side, they will be able to find out how talented their first-round draft pick C.J. Spiller really is.
Fred Jackson’s injury is reported to be a broken hand that should keep him out any where from 4 to 6 weeks which will included at least the first game of the season. This news comes from Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.
Marshawn Lynch’s injury was only a sprained ankle but he will still be out for 3 to 4 weeks in order to fully recovery.
Bill’s coach Chan Gailey may look to work out a veteran back in the coming days to try patch some of the holes in the running game. Kolby Smith, who was recently released by the Broncos, could be such an option given his previous experience with Gailey in Kansas City.
