Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey closed the door on any possibility of Tarvaris Jackson playing this season, barring injury.
"That's not going to happen this year. It can't happen. We just don't have enough time to get that done and enough reps to get him where he needs to be," Gailey said Monday morning on his weekly appearance on WGR 550.
Gailey, though, indicated the Bills would have an interest in bringing Jackson back. His contract expires after this season.
"We'd like to have him here if we can keep him here as long as possible. We think he's a talented player," the coach said. "If we've got an injury, then we can give him some more reps and he could get more in tune with what we're doing, but right now we just don't have enough time."
Since taking overs two games into the 2010 season, Ryan Fitzpatrick has started 38 of 39 games, missing only the season finale in that same year.
