Doug Marrone on C.J. Spiller: 'I think we feel good, think he'll be out there'


Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller was viewed as one of the NFL’s most explosive players and a consensus top five pick in fantasy football drafts, but heading into Week 5, he’s yet to score a touchdown and has just 230 yards rushing.

It’s easy to see Spiller’s statistics worsening as he deals with a sprained ankle and may face a Cleveland Browns defense among the league’s best at stopping the run.

With tonight’s game just a few hours away, head coach Doug Marrone remains optimistic his most valuable offensive weapon will play:


With his running-mate Fred Jackson also dealing with an injury that has him listed as probable tonight, the  Bills may be giving rarely-used Tashard Choice some touches tonight as well.

This is a very bad situation for anyone who has Spiller on their team this week. At this point, he should be nothing more than a low-ceiling flex play.
