PAIN TRAIN

Injuries are a part of football, but these players have been hit particularly hard.

Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey announced on his weekly radio show that running back Fred Jackson is being tested for concussion-like symptoms, adding it's too early to determine whether he'll play against Miami on Thursday.

Gailey told Buffalo's WGR-Radio on Monday that Jackson was not feeling well on the flight home following a 37-31 loss at New England. Gailey wouldn't rule out Jackson from playing, but noted there's a chance he won't because the game's only days away.

A person familiar with the injury calls it ''unlikely'' that Jackson will play. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because Gailey would only say that Jackson ''might not be ready.''

Jackson was hurt in the final minute after taking a blow to head while being tackled by linebacker Brandon Spikes.
