C.J. Spiller is expected to play, despite ankle injury

Spiller AP

Absent from practice on Monday and Tuesday and limited on Wednesday, Bills running back C.J. Spiller apparently will be playing on Thursday night despite an ankle injury.

Coach Doug Marrone has said C.J.Spiller will play.

Spiller has said he’ll play if he’s only 80 or 85 percent.  Given that his game is premised on cutting and the injured body part is his ankle, Spiller’s output could be diminished.

Or, like Roddy White for the Falcons in Week One (before he told everyone how jacked up his ankle), Spiller could be a decoy tonight.

    Decisions,decisions…. Need some help guys. Was hoping for an inactive status to make it an easy choice. Spiller or McGahee? (Who thought that would even be a real question a month ago?)

    It still isn’t a real question. Spiller

    Mcgahee. The browns have the 4th best rushing defense.

    Ha. I have both as well. I benched Spiller in favor of McGahee. Spiller has been ‘Spiller the Fantasy Killer’ for me this year. I’m hoping Cleveland continues to increase Mc’s workload and he gets some red zone touches in a prime time game at home.

    Spiller will play decoy tonight. Jackson will carry 80% of the load, 10% to Choice and the other 10% to Manuel/Graham/Woods. With a guy like Fred Jackson on your team, you don’t have to rush your starter back from an injury.
