Bills name Fred Jackson starter

In a look at one of the non-Randy Moss items from around the league, we turn to Buffalo, where Fred Jackson will be the starter in the wake of the trade sending Marshawn Lynch to Seattle. 

Jackson said he was told he’ll be getting the bulk of the work over rookie first-round pick C.J. Spiller, according to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.

That’s not a big surprise, given Jackson led the NFL with 2,516 combined yards in 2009, including 1,062 rushing yards at 4.5 yards per carry. While the roles for both Jackson and Spiller will expand, it sounds like the versatile Jackson will be carrying most of the load.

The Bills also promoted rookie RB Andre Anderson to the active roster.
