Fred Jackson suffers groin injury, leaves Vikings game


Bills running back Fred Jackson had an early exit to Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. On what appeared to be a harmless carry off the right side on a 3rd-and-1 near the end of the third quarter, Jackson fell and reached for his right groin area.

He didn't cut sharply on the play and was not violently tackled, but Jackson needed assistance to leave the field of play and a short time later was carted to the locker room.

Jackson leads the team in all-purpose yardage. He came into Sunday's game against the Vikings with 472 all-purpose yards, which accounts for almost a quarter of the team's total net yards on offense this season.

Set to pick up the slack in Buffalo's run game are C.J. Spiller and Boobie Dixon, who are active for today's game.
