With Marshawn Lynch’s suspension upheld Dick Jauron named Fred Jackson the starting running back for the first three games.
“Going into the season unless something happens it would be Freddy,” said Jauron. “Freddy would be the starter. But both (Jackson and Rhodes) will be playing a lot.”
This comes as no surprise. Jackson has a better handle on Buffalo’s offensive system and though Rhodes is a proven veteran back, Jackson has proven himself capable in the times he’s had to start in place of an injured Lynch the past two seasons.
