Bills RB Fred Jackson’s prognosis is a one-month recovery – much better than fellow-RB CJ Spiller.

The Buffalo Bills 17-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings was bittersweet to be sure. During the game the Bills lost their two starting RBs, Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller to injuries that will keep both of them on the shelf for a while.
Spiller is expected to miss the remainder of the season, but Jackson is going to try to make it back faster than the four-week timetable he’s been given by doctors.
“It’s not as bad as it could have been,” Jackson said on WGR 550, via ESPN.com. “It’s typically a four-week injury. But we’ll try to do some things to get it sped up. I like to think of myself as somebody who can come back before typical. It’s just gonna be on me to get in there and rehab and see the team doctors and do what it is they want me to do.”
The two players have collectively led the Bills in rushing yards in each of the last 5 seasons. Jackson is the Bills 3rd all-time leading rusher behind only Hall of Famers Thuman Thomas and O.J. Simpson.View poll on FanMob
