Fred Jackson's Season Cut Short

     The free falling Buffalo Bills have fallen a bit more.  Fred Jackson was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.  He is out with a fractured fibula.  Jackson had reportedly been sidelined with a calf injury, and had left Sunday's game in the third quarter.  X-rays earlier this week were negative, and yesterday, Jackson was ruled out for week 12.  Now he has been shut down for the entire season with s a broken leg.  C.J. Spiller will now be given a chance to be the lead back for the Bills.  Buffalo also signed Tashard Choice off waivers earlier today. 
     Jackson was having a career year, and it will end with him totaling 927 rushing yards (three 100 yard games) and 5 rushing touchdowns.  In addition, he racked up 31 receptions for 215 yards and 2 touchdowns.  He is 3rd overall for rushing yards this season.  It is a shame to see Jackson's season end after providing a feel good story in the first half of the season.  He had a tremendous season unfortunately cut short by an injury in week 11.
