News: Jackson (groin) was able to practice Friday without difficulty. Said the running back, "It felt good out there today. I didn't have any setbacks."
Impact: Jackson owners should get one more update following a Saturday afternoon practice now that the team has finally been able to get to Detroit and try to salvage a workweek. We're pretty sure Jackson will suit up this week, though we also think the Bills will mix in Bryce Brown and Boobie Dixon even if Jackson is fit to start.
News: Carpenter (groin) and his teammates are slated to play the Jets in Detroit on Monday, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Though Carpenter was projected as a limited participant in practices that the Bills were unable to hold Wednesday and Thursday due to a severe snowstorm in Buffalo, we suspect that the kicker will be a go Monday night at Ford Field, where weather won't be a factor.
News: Orton (toe) and his teammates are slated to practice Friday evening at the Lions' facility in Detroit, where the Bills will play the Jets on Monday, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: With Week 12's contest rescheduled/relocated due to the impact of a major snowstorm in Buffalo, the report relays that all 53 Bills players were able to make the trip to Detroit on Friday. With the Bills not practicing Wednesday and Thursday, Orton was projected as a limited participant both days, but we suspect that he will be fine for Monday's night's game, a notion that would be solidified by an official probable designation upon the release of the team's final Week 12 injury report.
