RB Fred Jackson has provided some big plays for the Bills in the past. His 54-yard catch and run against Washington as part of a 151-yard all purpose day in a comeback win while spot starting for an injured Lynch was just one example. Last year’s 131-yard rushing effort in the season finale was another.
With a strong likelihood that Jackson’s role on offense will increase, he stands a good chance of being a weekly spark plug for the offense.
“I’d like to see an ever-increasing role with Fred,” said running backs coach Eric Studesville. “He’s proven that he’s dependable and productive in everything that we’ve asked him to do. So we’re going to do it, get him more touches and find more ways to get him in the game.”
