Bills head coach Chan Gailey told reporters that Fred Jackson will most likely play against the Patriots this weekend, assuming that he doesn’t suffer a setback in the coming days.
“I think if we make it through the next couple days and continue to improve I think he’ll have the opportunity to play,” said Gailey, via the Buffalo News.
“In my mind I play. But like I said, it’s not always just totally up to me. I feel like I can play right now,” Jackson told Buscaglia.
Heading into practice this morning, Jackson said his knee was “a little sore, a little swollen,” but he was able to participate in today’s practice. With C.J. Spiller now a long shot to play and Jackson explaining he was on 70-75 percent healthy at the beginning of the week, it wouldn’t be surprising if running back Tashard Choice is the Bills feature back this Sunday against the Patriots.
