Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson couldn't have been more unequivocal today when addressing the issue of recovering from the broken right leg fibula that ended a possible All-Pro campaign in November.
"I don't really consider my injury last year as serious as a lot of people say," Jackson said today at St. John Fisher College. "It was just a dumb bone that I fractured. But I was walking around on it two weeks later without any problem. It's a non-weight-bearing bone. I'm fine, 100 percent ready to go.
"I'm excited about being back out here. Yeah, it took me off the field last year, but it's not a catastrophic injury that I suffered."
We have Jackson ranked as an RB2 at #19, and available in the fourth round. This year's owners will hope to see similar numbers as before Jackson got hurt last year, and although he claims to be 100%, that's something he'll have to prove. CJ Spiller proved he could do the job filling in last year for Jackson and will be in the mix.
