It’s been a rough start to the season for Buffalo Bills starting running back C.J. Spiller, one that got even more rough today when Spiller had to leave the game against the Baltimore Ravens after he suffered a knee injury in the third quarter.
Spiller, who took a handoff (which was semi-botched) from E.J. Manuel was quickly surrounded by Baltimore defenders and in his attempt to avoid the rush, ended up getting his leg caught under the defenders who were in the process of bringing him down.
Thankfully for Spiller and Buffalo Bills fans, Spiller was able to leave the field under his own power though he did have a pretty obvious limp and was immediately checked out by the training staff.
There’s no word on the severity of the injury as of yet nor is it known if he’ll return to the game. Fred Jackson came on and is handling duties until there is further word on Spiller’s status.
The fact he was able to leave under his own power though was obviously a good sign.
Update: The Bills are calling it a minor ankle injury and Spiller will return
