The healing progress of the broken bone in Fred Jackson’s hand will be examined on Thursday.
“I’ve got to go get an X-ray tomorrow and see what it looks like,” said Jackson after practicing Wednesday. It’s feeling pretty good so I think that’ll be alright. But then we mold whatever it is that I’ll be wearing. We’ll see how that goes after taking the X-ray.”
Jackson, who has been back practicing with his teammates since last Saturday, is confident that the athletic training and equipment staffs will mold a device that enables him to carry the ball with the proper pressure points.
“They’re telling me it won’t be too bulky, so I’ll be able to hold the ball like I want to with it,” said Jackson. “Hopefully it’s not a trial and error thing and hopefully we can get it right, right out of the gates and I’ll be comfortable with it.”
Head coach Chan Gailey is confident that Jackson will be good to go for Sunday’s home opener.
“I think Fred Jackson will be fine for the game,” said Gailey. “He’ll still be hampered a little bit with that hand, but I think they worked it out and should be able to pad it well enough where it should not be an issue.”
