Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 5 vs CIN (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Veteran running back Fred Jackson had just 5 touches in this game including three receptions on three targets in the passing game for 34 total yards. Battling though a high-ankle sprain it was a surprise to see Jackson suit up for this game.

2015 Week 4 vs DET (3 / 21 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Seeing increased snaps with Marshawn Lynch nursing a hamstring injury against the Detroit Lions Fred Jackson now has injury troubles of his own leaving with an apparent ankle injury in this game. He made some plays for the Seahawks in this game who was having trouble getting anything going on offense including a 26-yard catch in the first quarter. Though only touching the ball 5 times in this game Jackson collected 2 receptions on 4 targets along with 54 total yards.

2015 Week 3 vs CHI (2 / 13 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

The veteran running back was not a factor in this game, even with Marshawn Lynch leaving with an injury. He was given just two carries on which he gained 13 yards and added two catches for 9 yards. His catch in the 4th quarter was on a critical 3rd down play as Russell Wilson threw him a screen pass under extreme pressure in the pocket.

2015 Week 2 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 16 / 1 rec)

The veteran running back had zero carries in this game but did finish with 2 receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown reception was in the red zone on the first drive of the second half where Wilson hit him out of the shotgun with a short pass off a post route through the middle of the field. Jackson later loses a fumble on a short pass that is punched out from behind. This effectively ended comeback hopes and the game for the Seahawks.

2015 Week 1 vs STL (3 / 13 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

The newly acquired veteran running back from the Buffalo Bills was not much of a factor in this game. He took his first carry from the shotgun for a short gain. His best play of the night came with an empty backfield where Jackson was split out wide for a nice 16-yard catch and first down. He did pick up a crucial short yardage first down on 3rd and 1 with 49 seconds left in first half.
