UPDATE: Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller will play today against the Patriots.

The Buffalo Bills will have running back Fred Jackson back on the field today against the New England Patriots. Jackson, who suffered a sprained knee in Week 1 against the New York Jets, is not only expected to play, but he will likely be getting most of the work in Buffalo’s backfield.

Jackson seems to fired up this morning about making his return against a Patriots team he holds good overall numbers against. In his eight career games against New England, Jackson has rushed for 465 yards (his most against any team) on 93 carries with one touchdown. His 233 receiving yards are also his most against any team

C.J. Spiller, who ranks fourth in the league in rushing with 308 yards and second in yards from scrimmage with 422, is still a game-day decision, but teammates expect him to play.
