Bills head coach Doug Marrone said today running back Fred Jackson would be able to play Sunday -- if the team had a game.
The Bills don't, of course, as they head into the bye in Week 12, giving Jackson and Co. plenty of time to heal up before Buffalo's next game, which comes Dec. 1 against Atlanta in Toronto.
"He's fine. No problems at all," Marrone said of Jackson, who suffered a left knee injury against during the Bills' 37-14 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, but was able to return to the lineup. "He would be able to play this week."
Marrone also sounded optimistic about the chances of both his starting receivers, Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle), playing against the Falcons. They both sat out Sunday.
Woods told The Buffalo News earlier in the day his plan was to return to the lineup in the Rogers Centre. That would mean the Bills would have all 53 players on their roster healthy enough to play.
