RG3's knee injury not as serious as was feared

Published: Tuesday, Dec. 11 2012 1:35 a.m. MST

The 30-year-old Jacobs has just five carries for 7 yards while playing in only two games with the NFC West-leading Niners (9-3-1). He spent his first seven NFL seasons with the New York Giants and has called this his "worst" year.

In recent days, he posted a series of photos of himself playing for the Giants — and even a picture of his two Super Bowl championship rings.

"I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners," Jacobs said in an Instagram post Saturday. "This is by far the worst year I ever had."

BILLS' RB JACKSON LOST FOR SEASON: Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson will miss the remainder of the season with a sprained ligament in his right knee.

Coach Chan Gailey said Monday that Jackson is expected to miss from 3-5 weeks. And that won't be enough time to recover considering the Bills (5-8) have only three games left and have all but mathematically been eliminated from playoff contention.

Jackson was hurt on a 2-yard run in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 15-12 loss to St. Louis. He won't require surgery after being diagnosed with a Grade 2 sprain to his MCL.

COWBOYS MAY BE WITHOUT BRYANT: The Dallas Cowboys might be without wide receiver Dez Bryant for their playoff push. Bryant injured his left index finger in an emotional 20-19 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday. Dallas coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Bryant was still being evaluated. Bryant re-entered the game after sustaining the injury and caught a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for the Cowboys (7-6).
