C.J. Spiller has sprained shoulder, could be back in two weeks

The Bills and running back C.J. Spiller dodged a bullet today.

Spiller, who entered the game as the NFL’s leading rusher with 292 yards in two games, left with a shoulder injury.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s a sprain of the shoulder — specifically the A.C. joint — and he’ll definitely miss one week.

But he could be back in two weeks.

The question then is whether Fred Jackson will make it back next week, when the Bills face the Patriots.  Coach Chan Gailey recently said there’s a chance Jackson will return.

If Jackson can’t go, either, Tashard Choice will get the nod.  On Sunday against the Browns, Choice had 91 rushing yards in place of Spiller.

  1. Choice and white showed today they can carry the load for a week. If spiller and Jackson are back in time for the west coast trip, we’ll be fine. Next Sunday should be a playoff atmosphere at the Ralph. Pats are going to be hungry for a win, bills want to make a statement they are legit contenders. #billsmafia

    “Tashard Choice is horrible.”


    He got 91 yards and only played in 3 1/2 quarters; how is that horrible? Granted, I don’t like his and Johnny White’s chances against the Patriots. Hopefully, Jackson is fully ready to go and isn’t rushed back early because of this. Revis came back to early from injury and looked what happened to him; he’s out for the rest of the season. Yes, we do need Jackson versus the Patriots but we need him for more than just this upcoming game; we might lose this game without him but we will surely lose more without him for any long period through out the rest of the season.

  3. Buffalo also has the best line in the league so that helps him. He was on the roster to make sure 2nd and goal turns into 3rd and goal.

    He’s a journeyman at best who probably won’t get another chance after Buffalo.
