Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson’s rehab from a knee injury is right on schedule.
As a guest on The John Murphy Show Friday, Jackson said he expects to get clearance from his doctor to increase his workload. Jackson said he has been doing some lifting now and feels he is close to being 100 percent healthy.
“I’ve been doing rehab the entire time,” Jackson said. “I’ve been able to get up and do some movement on it. I have a meeting with the doctor next week. I’m sure I’ll be cleared and be able to do everything.”
Jackson said he was hoping to rebound from a tough, injury-plagued 2012 season, where he suffered a concussion and two knee injuries.
"I didn’t play well at all this season,” he told The John Murphy Show. “And on top of that, to get hurt, is not a good feeling.”
Now, with a new coaching staff, Jackson said he is eager to show what he can do on the playing field.

“I’ll be highly motivated going into this season,” he said. “The new coaching staff, I’ve had an opportunity to meet all of them. I’m excited about their enthusiasm and what they’re going to bring to the table. I want to be a big part of what we do next year.”
