Bills’ Lynch to play Thursday; Jackson back at practice

One veteran player the Bills plan to look at during Thursday night’s preseason finale is Marshawn Lynch.

Bills coach Chan Gailey said Lynch, who returned from an ankle injury to participate in a walk-through Monday, kept up with other players during the session, according to the team’s official Web site.

“Oh we plan on him playing,” Gailey said. “Yeah, no question.”

Lynch injured the ankle during the preseason opener.

Fred Jackson, still atop the team’s depth chart at running back, also was on the practice field Tuesday minus the cast on his previously broken left hand, according to The Buffalo News.

Lynch and Jackson had targeted the Sept. 12 season opener against the Dolphins for their returns.

The injuries to Jackson and Lynch provided the Bills an extended look at rookie C.J. Spiller, but Gailey isn’t ready to name him the starter just yet, Chris Brown writes.
