From NFL:

The Buffalo Bills placed running back Fred Jackson on season-ending injured reserve with a fractured fibula, the team announced Wednesday, shortly after a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora about the move.

Jackson's injury typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to heal, the source told La Canfora, so it shouldn't be of any long-term concern. Still, it was enough to end Jackson's season.


"Further tests on Fred's injured leg have shown that he has a broken bone in his leg, so that's disappointing news for our team and certainly for Fred," Bills coach Chan Gailey said Wednesday in a statement released by the team. "He was having a great year. The process for Fred to return to the field would most likely take him through the end of the season, so we have made the difficult decision to place him on injured reserve."
