Buffalo Bills running back CJ Spiller will reportedly undergo surgery on his collarbone Monday. The procedure will bring an early end to his season.
Spiller was carted off of the field, while fellow running back Fred Jackson was ruled out with a groin injury.
It was initially reported that Spiller broke his collarbone and Bills head coach Doug Marrone said that he would be out “for an undetermined time.”
Later Sunday afternoon, the news was confirmed and Pro Football Talk reported that Spiller will be undergoing surgery on Monday which will bring an early end to his season.
It is an unfortunate end to what was already a disappointing season for the Bills running back.
If Jackson is unable to go in the Bills’ next game, the team will be forced to rely on running backs Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown to carry the load in the rushing attack against the division rival New York Jets.
