Buffalo Bills C.J. Spiller injures knee

Fantasy Football players all over the world are collectively holding their breaths. C.J. Spiller has left the Buffalo Bills game against the New York Jets with a knee injury in the 4th quarter. NFL.com writer Dan Hanzus had the early report.

The running back exited Sunday’s matchup against the New York Jets to a knee injury. Spiller was seen limping to the locker room, his leg in a wrap, during the early part of the fourth quarter.

Spiller managed just nine yards on 10 carries before exiting the game. Fred Jackson took over in Buffalo’s backfield, busting a 59-yard run and playing well.

C.J. has been a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners everywhere as he has failed to find the end zone so far this season. After a poor 1st game he was able to run for over 100 yards in the second but many owners are wondering why Fred Jackson seems to be getting so many carries this season.

Heading into the season most people saw Jackson as the injury question mark in the Bills backfield, particularly with his history the last two years. If Spiller misses any significant time due to this injury it will be more than just Buffalo Bills fans that are sad.
