Jackson: Extra rest day can’t mean complacency

The rains came this morning at St. John Fisher in Rochester, canceling Buffalo’s scheduled 8 am practice. The team conducted walk through sessions indoors instead. Already having Monday off, Tuesday’s lack of activity was relished by the players who were quick to rest their bodies now in week four of training camp. At the same time the extra day off can’t lead to complacency.

That was the message of Bills veteran back Fred Jackson.

“It’s huge when you’re out here banging and going through as much as we are,” said Jackson of the extra day without contact. “When you’re at training camp and you get these unexpected days off, you like it. But it’s on us now to take advantage of it when we come back on the field. We’ve had a couple of days off and then we get right back to work.”

And the work figures to be intense with two days of practice with the Steelers in Latrobe, PA.

“Yeah, it couldn’t come at a better time knowing that we’re about to go out there and it’s going to be pretty physical,” said Jackson. “They’re a team that prides themselves on being physical and we’re going to go out there and match that. We get a good break going into that is going to make it that much better.”
