Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson could return to practice as soon as next Wednesday, coach Chan Gailey said on Friday. Jackson missed Thursday night's win over the Miami Dolphins because of a concussion.
Jackson ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10, as he continued to share running back duties with C.J. Spiller. On Thursday, Spiller had 130 total yards against Miami without Jackson in the lineup.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should be patient with Jackson, while Spiller's owners will likely hope that Buffalo waits another week before restoring the timeshare in the backfield. Spiller is the more explosive back, while Jackson continues to get most of the opportunities near the end zone.
Spiller has more value at this point but Jackson would cut into that when he returns.
