Browns S Whitner, Bills RB Jackson having war of words


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:55 pm ET) Running back Fred Jackson and former Bills teammate Donte Whitner, who now suits up as a starting strong safety for the Browns, have embarked on a war of words heading into the battle between the two teams Sunday.

Whitner tweeted this summer about the team's proposed move to Toronto, asking how Bills fans feel about it and following it up with an "LOL." Jackson hasn't been laughing out loud.

"If you talk down to anybody, you can't be respected," he said via ESPN. "That's just me, that's how I feel about it. For him to stay stuff like that, about people that we love in this organization, he'll never get my respect for that." Jackson also called Whitner "an idiot."

Whitner did not back off, claiming that his words could now have more of a purpose.

"[The Toronto Bills comment] wasn't excessive. It wasn't a joke. I knew that it would get to them. I knew it would ruffle a feather. If they're over there talking about this, maybe we are in their heads. Maybe I'm in their heads. Maybe. We don't know, but the goal is to go 1-0, the goal is to get them talking about things other than football, and I guess that's what they're doing."


Bills backfield situation becomes cloudier


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Bills running back Fred Jackson saw his role return to normal in Week 12 against the Jets, and that shifted the dynamic of the backfield drastically Monday.

Jackson got 13 touches Monday, his highest total since before he suffered the groin injury in mid-October, and received some goal-line work too. He mostly split time in the backfield with Anthony Dixon, who rushed for 54 yards on 12 carries, including a touchdown, while Bryce Brown received just six carries for 20 yards and was held without a catch.

Jackson saw the field most out of the three, as he had 48 snaps, compared to 20 for Dixon and 15 for Brown. It seems like that might be the split moving forward, which will make both Brown and Dixon especially hard to rely on. Neither player showed much in Jackson's absence to make you want to start them anyways, so they are best left on the bench most weeks moving forward, with Dixon looking like just an emergency start at best. 


Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon leads Bills' backfield


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Bills running backs Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon each received 13 touches in Monday's blowout of the Jets, while running back Bryce Brown got only six.

Returning from a groin injury, Jackson started and carried 10 times for 32 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He caught three of four targets for 13 yards.

Dixon took advantage of a demoralized Jets defense when he rumbled for a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finished with 12 carries for 54 yards and added an 8-yard grab. Brown ran six times for 20 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game.

All three backs will face the Browns in Week 13.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I know with our training staff and doctors they’ll take every precaution we need to, but like coach (Doug) Marrone said, if the game was yesterday there’s probably a pretty good chance that I would’ve played. So I’m planning on playing this Sunday and it’s just on me to go out there and take this week slowly and get back out there."

Bills coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Jackson will be back at full capacity, barring another setback.

Marrone: Bills RB Fred Jackson tweaked groin vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone revealed Thursday that running back Fred Jackson tweaked his groin in his team's Week 10 loss to the Chiefs, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"[Jackson] tweaked that groin again during the course of the game," Marrone said. "I think it’s very admirable for Fred. We know what type of player he is and how tough he is to be out there, but that’s what happened during the course of that game. I think it’s very difficult… it’s one of those things during the course of the week this week to make those types of decisions."

Jackson himself indicated that he tweaked his groin in practice Tuesday, ESPN reports. At any rate, Jackson is officially questionable for Thursday's game against the Dolphins but will appear on the team's inactive list and sit out Week 11.

Bills ease back RB Fred Jackson


by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(11/9/2014) In his first game back from a groin injury, Bills running back Fred Jackson wasn't asked to carry the load Sunday against the Chiefs. He ran three times for 10 yards and caught three of four targets for 30 yards.

Running backs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown combined for 22 touches. Jackson visits the Dolphins on Thursday.


Week 10 provides little clarity for Bills' backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Fred Jackson returned to the backfield for the Bills in Week 10 against the Chiefs, but the team still split the workload pretty evenly, with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown getting plenty of touches in the 17-13 loss.

Dixon led the team in carries with nine, and looked like the most effective of the three backs in that facet of the game. However, he was a non-factor in the passing game, while Bryce Brown led the team with six receptions for 65 yards and Jackson hauled in four passes of his own for 39 yards.

We have just one game's worth of stats to see how the team used their three backs, so there really isn't much we can take out of this. Heading into Week 11 against the Dolphins Thursday, this situation remains a tough one to figure out for Fantasy owners, with all three touching the ball between seven and 13 times. Brown had the most productive game, finishing with 9 Fantasy points, but he had also been a non-factor in the passing game before Sunday, so who knows if he can keep that up. 

With this kind of tough matchup on the way, you may be best passing on all three of the Bills' backs in Week 11. 


Bills RB Fred Jackson ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Despite nursing groin injuries, the Bills remain optimistic wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back Fred Jackson will play Sunday against Kansas City.

Jackson has been dealing with a groin injury since Week 7 against Minnesota, while Watkins suffered his groin injury during practice Wednesday. Both are listed as questionable. 


Wideouts dominate Bills injury report for Week 10 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) The questionable statuses for cornerback Ron Brooks, running back Fred Jackson and wideout Sammy Watkins with groin injuries headline the report submitted by the Bills for their Sunday game against Kansas City.

All others are probable, including wide receivers Robert Woods (back), Marcus Easley (knee) and Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and linebacker Ty Powell (ankle).

Bills coach Doug Marrone: No decision yet on Fred Jackson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"He's progressing. He's not 100 percent yet," said Marrone, per the team's official website. "So we'll see how it goes the next couple of days. We haven't made a decision either way."


Bills RB Fred Jackson practices again, but Week 10 status uncertain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Although running back Fred Jackson participated in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Bills coach Doug Marrone didn't seem too confident Jackson would be back in the lineup Week 10 vs. Kansas City. Jackson has already missed one game.

"We'll see how it progresses, but right now I'm not sure," Marrone said out Jackson's Week 10 playing status.


Bills running backs in tough spot for Week 10


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The Bills gave the bulk of the work to Anthony Dixon over Bryce Brown in Week 8, but neither really showed much in their first extended tryout for the starting running back spot. Unfortunately, that could remain the case in Week 10 as well, with a tough matchup against the Chiefs on the way.

The Chiefs have yet to allow a touchdown to a running back this season, with just two backs even reaching double figures in Fantasy scoring against them. That doesn't bode well in general for a Bills' backfield that is likely to be a time share, and especially nto with Fred Jackson's return to practice Wednesday.

The Bills will likely try to spread the playing time out between the three if Jackson is able to play, but even without Jackson it's awfully hard to rely on anyone here. Unless you are desperate, the Bills' backfield seems like a stay-away situation for Week 10.
