Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller is playing today after being limited in practice this week. Spiller has been dealing with a lingering ankle injury. In their last game on Thursday, October 3rd, Spiller played just 13 snaps and touched the ball just 8 times.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that he will play, despite being listed as questionable, against the Cincinnati Bengals today.

Spiller is expecting the Bengals defense to stack the box against him since they’re starting Thad Lewis at quarterback. Starting quarterback E.J. Manuel is out with a knee injury. Spiller doesn’t think that the Bengals loading the box can slow down their rushing attack.
“This will be one of the most physical games. If we can get past the second level we can get big chunks,” Spiller said, via CBS Sports.
The Bengals run defense is ranked 10th by ESPN, and is allowing only 95.6 yards per game.
