After a test showed that there was no serious injury to his left wrist, the Bills running back Fred Jackson took a load off mind for knowing that the sprain would not keep him out of the regular season opener.
“It was a little scary yesterday when I first did it, but I feel fine right now,” Jackson said. “That’s always a good thing when the X-rays come back negative, so I’m enthusiastic about that.”
The Bills shared the same feeling. Because their starter Marshawn Lynch was suspended by the NFL for the first three regular games, Jackson and veteran Dominc Rhodes will play the starting role for the first three games. It was really important for Jackson to keep healthy.
Jackson also planned to test the injury though practicing on Thursday. If everything will be ok, he will play in the Bills’ third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday.
