Bills' Fred Jackson To Miss Rest Of Pre-Season With Hand Injury

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson injured his left hand early in the first quarter of Friday’s 42-17 loss to Washington. According to reports, it’s bad enough that he will miss the remainder of the pre-season…if not more time.

Head coach Chan Gailey says he “hopes” that Jackson will be ready in time for the September 12th opener. RB Marshawn Lynch also left the game due to an injury, though it’s not believed to be serious.

Buffalo Rumblings: Bills Loss To Redskins Was Ugly Early And Ugly Often

You want to know what’s it’s like to be a Buffalo Bills fan these days? Read this:

There is a scene from the most under-appreciated sitcom in television history, Arrested Development, that comes to mind tonight. Michael Bluth, the series’ main character, opens his fridge and pulls out a paper bag on which is written the following message: “DEAD DOVE. DO NOT EAT.” Michael opens the bag, peers inside, registers the contents, and mutters, “I don’t know what I was expecting.”

The Bills got steamrolled in their exhibition debut 42-17 by the Redskins Friday night and Buffalo Ramblings did not see much to look at inside the brown bad that is Bills football.

It was ugly early, and it was ugly often. No way to talk ourselves around that simple, undeniable fact. If you’re a glass-half-empty type of human, you’re unhappy. If you’re glass-half-full, you’ll realize that, quite literally, there’s nowhere to go but up.

Trent Edwards went 6-for-12 with 58 yards and an interception in the start for the Bills, who went 6-10 last season and sat at the bottom of the AFC East. Joique Bell ran for a touchdown while David Nelson caught a score.

Rian Lindell kicked a 38-yard field goal in the first quarter, but Washington scored 21 unanswered points before halftime on an Anthony Armstrong four-yard touchdown catch from McNabb, a Williams two-yard score and a nine-yard catch by Fred Davis from Grossman to take a 21-3 lead into the break.
