Bills player on Spikes: 'He'll get his'

By Mike Reiss

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't the only Buffalo Bills player fuming at Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes.

After Spikes was penalized 15 yards for roughing Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, he knocked running back Fred Jackson out with a concussion. Spikes' actions after the hit on Jackson caught the attention of Bills running back Tashard Choice.

"He'll get his," Choice said on Monday, according to John Wawrow of the Associated Press. "I don't like to see nobody get hurt, and then on top of that [Spikes] making fun of him while he's on the ground."

More from Wawrow:
Choice was referring to how Spikes flexed his arm and then mouthed off at Jackson and several Bills players while the running back was down late in the fourth quarter of a 37-31 loss at New England.

"You know it's cool to make a big hit," Choice said. "But it's not cool when somebody's down like that."

Coach Chan Gailey announced Jackson was diagnosed with a concussion and will not play Thursday, when the Bills (3-6) host AFC East rival Miami (4-5).

Gailey said Jackson began not feeling well during the team's flight home. Tests taken Monday morning confirmed that he had sustained a concussion.

Jackson was hurt at the end of a 9-yard catch and run, when he lowered his head while being swarmed by three New England defenders. Spikes got to Jackson first, lunging into the running back with his left forearm striking Jackson directly on the helmet.
