Lynn: taking load off Fred means a better Fred

Bills RB Fred Jackson has been willing to step into any role in his time with the club. Kick returner, punt returner, running back, third down back, whatever it is Jackson has been up to the task. Over the last few seasons with C.J. Spiller missing time here and there with injuries, it’s forced Jackson to pick up more of the slack and the load. Now at age 34, it’s the Bills looking to avoid a heavy load for Jackson so they can get the best Fred Jackson possible on the field from start to finish this season.

“Fred had over 500 snaps last year and I think he wore down a bit at the end of the season,” said Bills assistant head coach/running backs coach Anthony Lynn. “If we can take half of that off his plate I think you’ll see a fresher Fred Jackson and a more explosive Fred Jackson.”

Lynn also mentioned that he had no problem with LeSean McCoy logging 300 carries this season if it came to it, claiming it means they’re running the ball successfully and winning games.
