Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller progressing well from ankle injury


 

The Buffalo Bills are banged-up throughout their offense, and with starting quarterback E.J. Manuel set to miss the upcoming game against the Cincinnati Bengals, having a full-healthy C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson will be key to getting a big home-win on Sunday.

Spiller is currently dealing with an ankle injury that has limited his performance over the past few weeks:


Spiller and Jackson will be part of a run-heavy game plan vs the Bengals, and we may even see some read-option plays with Thaddeus Lewis at QB.

Last week in a loss to the Cleveland Browns, Spiller played just 13 snaps and got eight touches, but one of them was for a 54-yard TD run. Jackson played 50 snaps and 21 touches.

Look for the touches to be more even this week if Spiller continues to progress well over the next three days.
