Fred Jackson (ribs) returned to practice Thursday.

Jackson was able to gut it out through broken ribs last week, posting a 19/111/1 line in the win over Miami. We're not expecting him to be limited in the season finale.

Fred Jackson (ribs) did not practice Tuesday.

Jackson played through a rib injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, so the Bills are just getting him some rest. He's in no danger of missing Week 17 against the Patriots.

Fred Jackson played through broken ribs in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Jackson looked to be fine, rushing 19 times for 111 yards with a touchdown. "You want to be a leader on this team? One of the best ways to show that you're with this team is to play hurt. And that's what I wanted to do -- let those guys know that I would be with them," he said. It's yet another reminder that players can often play through broken ribs as long as the pain isn't too overwhelming.

Fred Jackson rushed 19 times for 111 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 19-0 Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

The Bills absolutely dominated the Dolphins from the jump, leading to tons of volume for both Jackson (21 touches) and C.J. Spiller (23 touches). Of course, F-Jax got the majority of red-zone looks and was more powerful between the tackles, leading to his smooth 9-yard score in the second quarter. It was his first 100-yard rushing game of the season, but Jackson has been remarkably effective in his age-32 season. Heading into the finale, he has 836 rushing yards, 334 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.

Fred Jackson (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, as expected.

Jackson's status was never in doubt. He's a strong bet to both out-snap and out-carry C.J. Spiller once again, likely getting somewhere around 10-15 touches. Stevie Johnson (personal) and E.J. Manuel (knee) are both inactive, as previously announces. The rest of the Bills inactives: S Aaron Williams, RB Ronnie Wingo, CB Brandon Smith, OL Mark Asper and OL Antoine McClain.

Fred Jackson (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Jackson was limited in practice this week for rest purposes. He's a mid-range RB2 for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed Fred Jackson is expected to play against the Dolphins Sunday.

Jackson took Wednesday off as a mere rest day. He'll be ready for his normal workload in Week 16, which means 10-15 carries, 2-4 catches and red-zone work.

Fred Jackson (undisclosed) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jackson appeared to get through the Week 15 win at Jacksonville without issue, so this could very well be a veteran's day off. He continues to out-snap C.J. Spiller on a weekly basis and we wouldn't expect that to change against the Dolphins in Week 16.

Fred Jackson rushed for 80 yards on 17 carries in Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Jackson's 17 carries were a single-game season-high for him, and he contributed one catch for eight yards out of the backfield. C.J. Spiller tweaked his ankle at one point, but the Bills were going with a full-blown timeshare all afternoon. Spiller chipped in 67 yards on 13 runs. Jackson will continue to be a decent RB2/flex option next week against the Dolphins.
