Jackson received the OK before practice Friday, and expects to be "ready to go" on Sunday when Buffalo (2-1) hosts the Patriots (1-2). Despite feeling some soreness, he practiced for a third straight day since being hurt in a season-opening loss at the New York Jets on Sept. 9.
Against the Patriots in a Week 3 win last season, Jackson rushed for 74 yards and added 87 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Jackson is listed questionable on the injury report, giving him a 50 percent chance of playing. Running back C.J. Spiller (left shoulder) practiced for a second straight day, and is also listed questionable after he was hurt in a win at Cleveland last weekend.
Coach Chan Gailey says both have a "legitimate chance" of playing.
