Fred: We’ve got guys that put team first

Posted by Chris Brown on January 7, 2013 – 9:25 am

Bills RB Fred Jackson had a trying season health-wise, which we covered with Jackson in depth on Buffalobills.com this morning. But Jackson felt it was more important to put the fortunes of the team ahead of his own physical health last season, which is why he came back early from his LCL sprain in Week 1. Jackson isn’t labeling himself a hero, but takes stock in the fact that he’s not the only guy that put the team ahead of his own well being this season.

“We’ve got guys in here that want to do what’s best for this team or letting somebody else step in because they’re hurt,” Jackson told Buffalobills.com. “They want what’s necessary for the team to be done. (Eric) Wood is a perfect example. We have nothing to play for and he decides to come back off a torn MCL and not even close to 100 percent, but he’s ready to do what he has to and help us get wins.”

Jackson said as far as his right knee is concerned he should be able to have a normal offseason come February.

“A month for the knee,” he said. “I just have to come back and see the doctor. He said he’ll check me out and make sure my range of motion is okay and then I’m free to train. So from that point it’ll be a normal offseason. I’ll  be working out and doing rehab here so they’ll know everything that’s going on.”
