Fred Jackson's sprained knee won't require surgery and the Buffalo Bills' running back is expected to rejoin the team early in the three- to eight-week window initially given for his return, according to the Buffalo News. Jackson could begin light running this week, and said he's targeting a return for the Bills' Week 4 matchup against the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Impact: This is tremendous news for Jackson owners, and not-so-good news for anyone fortunate enough to pick up C.J. Spiller. There is a running-back controversy looming. However, there is a fairly decent chance both players will see touches and put up decent fantasy numbers. We will just have to wait and see what head coach Chan Gailey and the Bills plan to do.
