C.J. Spiller News Archive
Spiller had 11 carries for 22 yards and caught the lone pass thrown his way for 26 yards in Sunday's blowout loss at Tampa Bay.
Although Spiller said his ankle, which has given him trouble all season, was fine after Sunday's loss to Atlanta, he was noticeably limping at times and also took himself out of the game on occasion to have the ankle looked at, The Buffalo News reports. Said coach Doug Marrone: "He goes in there and makes the big run and gets nicked up. Starts limping a little bit, and gets himself back in there."
Spiller ran 15 times for 149 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. He also caught two passes on four targets for just eight yards.
Spiller says his ankle is feeling better following the team's bye week, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said the running back on Wednesday, "I feel good. I definitely feel like I'm getting back to my old self, making the cuts, making that explosion, so just looking forward to seeing how Sunday goes."
Spiller only saw 27-of-67 offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak. Meanwhile, teammate Fred Jackson saw 36-of-67 snaps.
Spiller had 13 carries for six rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 10 receiving yards Sunday against the Jets.
Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that he sees both Spiller and Fred Jackson as No. 1 backs. Marrone plans to keep the timeshare going so long as both players are healthy, and later implied he'd only use an exclusive back if one of them was extremely hot.
