Bills RB Fred Jackson Has 'No Problem' Splitting Reps
One of new coach Doug Marrone's many challenges in Buffalo is finding a way to the make the most of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller in the Bills' backfield.
Fans of the team were driven to the edge watching Chan Gailey yank Spiller on key drives and mix and match Jackson into action just when the offense seemed to develop some rhythm. These are both talented runners, but is there too much of a good thing in upstate New York?
Jackson says the committee approach is fine by him.
"If that's what it is, us sharing reps, we have no problems with that," Jackson told WGR-AM on Friday night, via the team's official site. "I don't have a problem with that. I'm looking forward going out there and making the best of my opportunities whenever I get on the field, I'm sure C.J.'s the same way. Whatever we can do to get a win, we're going to do, that's what we're about."
Jackson's seen two straight seasons washed away by injury, but he still accounted for 115 carries in 10 games last season to Spiller's 207 over 16 appearances.
