Week 6 vs. DET
Rushing: 2 / 6 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 12 / 0 on 1 targets
Jackson saw the field for the 1st time this season after being out with an ankle injury. He showed no ill effect from that injury in mop up time late in week 6. Jackson was unable to break a tackle on two short carries but later made a nice 3rd down catch on a play that Rodgers was able to extend with his feet. It remains to be seen if Jackson has taken the backup RB job or if DeShawn Wynn will be serving that role when he returns from his injury.
Week 7 vs. CLE
Rushing: 9 / 31 / 0
Jackson saw three snaps in the first drive as a change of pace to Ryan Grant and nine rushes overall. He wasn't as effective as Grant, unable to get through small creases in the front line and usually going down on first contact.
Week 8 vs. MIN
Jackson got in some passing downs, but his role as the backup RB seems to have been poached by Ahman Green.
Week 10 vs. DAL
Rushing: 1 / 2 / 0
Receiving: 3 / 15 / 0 on 3 targets
Jackson was used exclusively as a 3rd down change of pace back vs. the Cowboys. His lone carry came on an unpopular 3rd and long draw play. On his 3 short receptions he showed good burst and broke a few tackles.
Week 11 vs. SF
Rushing: 4 / 16 / 0
Receiving: 6 / 65 / 0 on 7 targets
With Ahman Green inactive, Jackson took advantage with a very nice game as a receiver out of backfield. He helped Rodgers as an outlet in the two-minute drill and on third down, and Jackson also made a few strong runs on the game-clinching drive in the fourth quarter. He is looking like a capable quality backup RB after struggling with an injury earlier in the season.
Week 12 vs. DET
Rushing: 6 / 14 / 0
Backup RB Brandon Jackson is starting to get more looks in the Packers offense. He had no success in week 12 spelling starter Ryan Grant. He carried the ball 6 times for 14 yards. Some of his looks were in the red zone.
Week 13 vs. BAL
Receiving: 2 / 14 / 0 on 3 targets
Jackson had a catch to convert an early first down, but the Packers coaches seemed to think Ahman Green was better suited to spell Ryan Grant as the game went on.
Week 14 vs. CHI
Rushing: 2 / 4 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 20 / 0 on 3 targets
Jackson had a frustrating day, getting thwarted on a third and short chance, and dropping a pass that could have extended a late drive. It looks like he would be in a committee with Ahman Green if Ryan Grant goes down with an injury.
Week 15 vs. PIT
Rushing: 1 / 1 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 4 / 0 on 2 targets
Jackson caught a two-point conversation, but otherwise, he wasn't really involved in the game plan on Sunday.
Week 16 vs. SEA
Rushing: 5 / 20 / 2
Receiving: 3 / 19 / 1 on 3 targets
Jackson did a great job turning a screen pass into a 13 yard touchdown. He got more red zone work in 2nd half. He Made a smart play to get by the defense for a short third down conversion; then followed up with by a score in which he cut back the other way when the road was blocked. Each of his scores was very impressive for different reasons. On the third one, he showed some power, fighting hard for the last yard on a short yardage play.
Week 17 vs. ARI
Rushing: 6 / 17 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 29 / 0 on 2 targets
Jackson did all of his damage on screen passes where he has a knack for waiting patiently for his blocks to develop in front of him. Jackson has also become a huge part of the team's pass protection and has made a nice niche for himself as the Packers 3rd down back.
Week 18 vs. ARI
Rushing: 2 / 6 / 0
Receiving: 1 / -1 / 0 on 1 targets
Jackson was barely used, and when he got a chance to make a play running out of the shotgun deep in Arizona territory late in the first half, he was stuffed for a loss.
