The Buffalo Bills' most effective offensive player for the last several years has been Fred Jackson, His durability has been the highlight of his effectiveness, brushing off what many thought were serious injuries. Not today.

On a 3rd-and-1 deep in his own territory, Jackson was stopped short and stayed down. While the Bills' trainers looked at his hip and groin, Jackson looked in visible pain. Not long after, the cart came out on the field and Jackson was removed with his head in his hands.

The FOX sideline reporter said it was a groin injury and he was out for the game. The immediateness of the injury report lets you know it could be much longer than the remainder of this week. We'll obviously keep you updated at the story progresses.
