I doubt it takes that long to heal. He looked fine after the injury. I say he will be good to go in two weeks.

We can hope. It would be nice to get Freddy back in the lineup that way Spiller can take some reps at WR, since Nelson's gone.

I'd much rather have Spiller at RB than working at WR. He is a threat everythime he touches the ball. Plus, he was the only bright spot on that awful showing Sunday.

Just saw the Jags released Brian Robiskie. I wouldn't mind taking a look at him.

Still don't understand the appeal of White - he does absolutely nothing for me. I would have signed former AZ Cardinal RB Alfonso Smith. He's performed better both rushing & catching behind a OL that was arguably worse than ours.

[EDIT - and without the concussion history]

Ehh I wouldnt worry about the White signing, he knows the offense and is a proven special teams player. I'm sure he will be cut when Jackson comes back from his injury.

White knows the offense and we needed another RB.

If familiarity is the main concern, I guess he's a good fit. His actual value as a "RB" however is far less than his ST play. Then again, maybe Chan assigns more value to ST play over the chance he'll get any real carries as a #3. IMO there's a better RB available who could learn the playbook and produce above the level White has given us in the past.

Your mileage may vary.

Here is some good news.

It appears Bills running back Fred Jackson has gotten some good news.

Jackson said after his television show on WBBZ-TV, via the Buffalo News, that tests showed his strained lateral collateral ligament didnít need surgery.
