The 2012 Buffalo Bills season is starting off a little like the 2011 Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills lost Fred Jackson to an injury on Sunday and David Nelson suffered what is being reported as a season-ending ACL injury.
The Chiefs, by the way, play the Bills in Week 2.
Nelson is out, assuming the report on his ACL is accurate. That's a season-ending injury, as we all know.
Jackson is the big one though. He sprained his LCL -- what is a sprained LCL? -- and is expected to miss Week 2 against the Chiefs. This is a huge, huge break for the Chiefs because Jackson is one of the Bills best offensive players. This is a big advantage for the Chiefs.
See the Fred Jackson injury here. Ugh. Gruesome looking.
The Chiefs will now see more of C.J. Spiller on Sunday in Buffalo. Spiller actually had a heck of a day on Sunday replacing Jackson -- 169 yards with runs of 56 and 49 yards.
