News: The Bills expect Jackson (groin) to play in Monday's game against the Jets, ESPN.com reports. "We're planning on him to be ready to go," coach Doug Marrone said Saturday. "Just take the injury and that's how we have to list it to protect ourselves."
Impact: While officially questionable, Jackson was able to on a limited basis Friday and Saturday and Marrone's words suggest there's little chance the 33-year-old will be inactive come Monday. It seems likely the Bills will give Jackson as much work as he can handle, but he's averaging just 3.00 yards per carry over his last three games and will face a Jets defense Monday that ranks fourth in the league against the rush (83.2 yards per game).
News: Carpenter (groin) is listed as probable for Monday night's game between the Bills and Jets that will be played in Detroit.
Impact: This was never really a concern, and Carpenter owners will likely get a nice boost with the game now being played in nice, dry conditions instead of the mess that was dumped on Ralph Wilson Stadium all week.
News: Orton (toe) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Although Orton remained limited in Saturday's practice, it doesn't seem his Week 12 availability is any serious jeopardy in light of the probable designation. With the major snowstorm in Buffalo, the NFL has moved the Jets-Bills game to Monday in Detroit. The indoor setting, combined with a plus matchup -- the Jets have allowed a league-leading 25 passing touchdowns -- could help Orton rebound after he averaged just 5.1 yards per attempt in his previous two outings.
News: Watkins (groin) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Watkins' dip in production in recent weeks has coincided with the groin injury, but he appears somewhat close to turning the page on the issue after practicing in full both Friday and Saturday. He'll face a Jets team in Week 12 at Ford Field in Detroit that has given up a league-leading 25 touchdowns through the air so far this season.
News: Jackson (groin) will be listed as questionable for this week's game against the Jets, which is being played in Detroit on Monday, Joe Buscaglia of WGR550.com reports.
Impact: The Bills understandably have an odd practice schedule leading up to the game, so assuming Jackson is able to participate on some level later Saturday, we'd feel pretty good about him suiting up for the Monday night game.
