Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson has been ruled out of Sunday's meeting with the New York Jets, and could miss the remainder of the season.
Buffalo coach Chan Gailey told reporters that Jackson could be out for the rest of the season with an injury to his lower right leg. The injury was suffered during the third quarter of a Week 11 loss to the Miami Dolphins after Jackson was hit in the back of the leg.
"Fred's not good, and I know he'll miss this one," Gailey said. "Then we'll have to decide what happens from there."
Asked if there was a chance Jackson could be back before the end of the season, Gailey said: "I don't know about that. We'll have to wait and see."
Jackson has rushed for 934 yards and six touchdowns. The dual threat has also caught 39 passes for 442 yards. His total of 1,376 yards from scrimmage is second in the NFL, behind only Chicago's Matt Forte (1,391).
