The starters were only in for seven plays on offense Thursday night, but Fred Jackson never took the field leading fans to wonder if it held any significance. Head coach Chan Gailey addressed it briefly.

“That’s what we did tonight,” said Gailey. “Don’t read too much into anything.”

In all likelihood the coaching staff felt that with the starters getting very limited work in the final preseason game that C.J. Spiller would benefit more from the extra work than Fred Jackson, who has far more experience. It also ensures that Jackson is healthy for the regular season opener at Kansas City.
