Despite predictions that were dire on both fronts, Bills coach Chan Gailey said there’s a chance both Fred Jackson (knee) and C.J. Spiller (shoulder) play Sunday against New England.
“I think they both have a chance, a legitimate chance,” Gailey said, via Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.
Both were somewhat limited in Friday’s practice, but there seemed to be more optimism about Jackson’s status.
“It got better as the day went on today, so that’s always good,” Jackson said. “It felt good yesterday, too, after practice. Excited to see what happens on Sunday.”
Gailey admitted he wouldn’t have expected earlier this week that Spiller would be as far along as he is.
“Not a chance,” Gailey said. “It was great to get Spiller back because it keeps our Wildcat stuff alive, so that’s good.”
Getting one back would be a bonus for the 2-1 Bills, having both would be a huge boost.
