The Buffalo Bills' backfield was ravaged by injuries on Sunday, with both Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller having to be carted off the field during Buffalo's 17-16 home victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

While Spiller's season is done after he suffered a broken collarbone, Jackson's injury appears to be far less serious.

Here's NFL Network's Ian Rapoport with the report:

Jackson stayed down on the turf after failing to convert on a 3rd-and-1 run in the second quarter. He would eventually be helped to his feet and would get to the sideline with the assistance of center Eric Wood and a team trainer.

He would then be carted to the locker room, hands covering his face.

However, with the worst-case scenario being just four games, Jackson should be back in plenty of time for Buffalo's playoff push down the stretch.
