Bills vs. Patriots: Fred Jackson Returns To Practice

When the Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field on Wednesday to begin preparations for their Week 4 matchup with the New England Patriots this Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, they were joined by veteran running back Fred Jackson.

Jackson, 31, is barely two weeks removed from a sprained LCL in his left knee suffered in a Week 1 loss to the New York Jets. That injury, which came on a low hit from safety LaRon Landry, was initially supposed to keep Jackson out for at least a month, but perhaps as long as six weeks.

All signs right now, however, point to Jackson being able to play this Sunday - which could be huge, given the iffy availability of fellow injured runner C.J. Spiller. Bills head coach Chan Gailey made sure to keep his language cautious when discussing Jackson's potential to play - the team will monitor Jackson closely during and after practice each day this week - but for now, it's safe to expect to see Jackson on the field against the Pats.
