Fred Jackson out for Thursday night - [Full Article]

Bills RB Fred Jackson, who left Sunday’s game with a head injury, does have a concussion and will miss Thursday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, head coach Chan Gailey announced Monday.

Jackson went to the ground late in the fourth quarter after he took a blow to the head while being tackled. He was able to leave the field under his own power after remaining on the ground for a few minutes. He finished the game 135 all-purpose yards, including 80 yards and a pair of TDs on the ground.

Fantasy Impact: 

Gailey said earlier that Jackson had not felt well on the team’s flight back to Buffalo following the game. With Jackson out, C.J. Spiller and Tashard Choice figure to see an increased workload, but Spiller is the guy to play and could very well be an RB1 option when our rankings are released Wednesday.
