Fred Jackson’s role is still undefined, but there is one
With LeSean McCoy entrenched as the Buffalo Bills starter, it’s not obvious where Fred Jackson will fit in. Rex Ryan said he does see a role for Jackson.
“First I think Fred is in great shape,” said Ryan. “So I think he’s got some tread on that tire still. The thing you notice immediately about Fred, smart, he picks things up extremely well. He’s picked up our offense extremely. Still valuable as a threat out of the backfield, great blitz pickup and by the way he can still run the football. Now we’ll use him. We’re not going to say this is his role, it’s clearly too early to define roles that way. Obviously LeSean came in here to get the majority of the carries. That’s no secret, but Fred can be very valuable for us.”
