Spiller will be the Bills' main kickoff returner to start the season in an effort to get him the ball about 20 times a game, BuffaloBills.com reports. When it comes to the risk of injury to such a valuable player, coach Doug Marrone said, "I look at it as how many guys have been injured returning the football compared to people injured with the ball being handed off to them. I don't view it as much of a risk as some people would. I could understand why people could see that because of the distance and the way people are running down the field. But again I don't look at it that way. As much as we can get our playmakers out there whether it be punt returns or kickoff returns we have to make sure we explore that."
Spiller finished the preseason with 21 rushes for 73 yards and a 3.5 average. He also caught four passes for 26 yards.
