X-rays were negative for Seahawks running back Fred Jackson following an ankle injury he sustained against the Lions on Monday Night Football.
According to the report, Jackson will undergo an MRI next to determine the severity of the injury, but based on the X-rays, it does not appear to be as bad as was originally anticipated.
After collecting 21 yards on three carries Monday night, Jackson was sidelined by the injury during the third quarter of Seattle’s eventual 13–10 victory over Detroit.
This season, the 34-year-old Jackson has eight carries for 47 yards, as well as seven receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown. He signed with Seattle in September after being released by the Buffalo Bills during the preseason.
With their win Monday night, the Seahawks improved to 2–2, while the Lions fell to 0–4.
