C.J. Spiller, Stevie Johnson probable for Sunday


The Bills appear likely to have two of their most important offensive players for Sunday’s game at Miami.

Running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) and wide receiver Stevie Johnson (back) are probable for Week Seven, Bills coach Doug Marrone said Friday, according to Joe Buscgalia of WGR SportsRadio 550 in Buffalo.

Johnson has caught 20 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns this season. He was sidelined for the Week Six loss to Cincinnati.

Spiller has been on the Bills’ injury report in each of the last four weeks, with the ankle ailment listed in each of the last three weeks. He has rushed for 351 yards and a touchdown on 84 carries for Buffalo, playing in all six regular-season games.

  1. The Bills will easily win this game. All you hear is about Gronkowski but the Bills TE is better and mismatch h with Louis Oliver!

  2. Loius Oliver @!*? Thanks for the fond flashback. He was a favorite of mine for the Phins about 15 years ago. I get your trying to be funny, but the real joke is that Miami’s Charles Clay is the leading AFC East TE, which is nuts if you consider we “had” Dustin Keller who was a lock with Gronk for that title. BTW- dare I say, but if the Jets had a real QB, Cumberland would not be too far behind. The Bills will be 2-5 Saturday afternoon.

  3. Spiller has not been anything like he was last season and I’m hoping it is the injury and not him using the excuse of a sore ankle to Passover critics. Expect Hackett to put in his two cents around draft time about getting a bruising type runner to pair with Spiller in the Bills backfield. Jackson is doing a good job considering his age, but the Bills need to get ahead and look a little farther toward the future of their running game.

    Stevie Johnson has always been on the field playing through injuries since the day he first caught a pass on this team. Its very odd to see him miss time and or sit on the sideline. Hopefully whatever this was is gone, because Chris Hogan is just not playing well and the team needs to slowly transition Marquise Goodwin back into the game in order to not cause him more injury issues. He did make a nice play last Sunday, getting behind the Cincinnati D nicely, but we need him on the field for the long haul, not here and there. So the sooner Johnson comes back, the better off it will be for Lewis.

  4. Marrone needs to sideline Spiller until this injury fully heals. Personally I think it happened in the preseason against the Redsk.. errr the Washington professional football team when he was hit out of bounds at the knee level.

    I understand the need to have an explosive guy like Spiller in the lineup, but if hes not 100% healthy hes just a decoy and hurting the team. Watching him run on this is painful as a fan because you know its just not right. He comes up lame after almost every carry and out trots Tashard Choice anyways. Just let it heal Doug.

    I’m a Miami Dolphins fan and honestly, I respect the Bills. They seem to be putting something decent together for the future, which is good to see, because it’s been a long time coming. I don’t however see this game shaping up to be the down to the wire matchup that it might end up being later this year, or next season. The Dolphins are a good team that has under performed thus far this season, and they still are 3-2. I hope it’s a good game and a fun one to watch, but I’d be shocked to see the Dolphins lose this one.
