Bills won't pull C.J. Spiller at goal line

Buffalo News - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone indicated after today's voluntary workout C.J. Spiller will not be pulled from games in short-yardage, third-down or red-zone situations because of size or skill set.

"My philosophy's always been if someone starts off and they're running well, keep feeding them the ball," Marrone said.

Asked if he has any reservations about using Spiller in certain spots, Marrone shook his head.

"I've really seen him as well as Fred work on the things that make them both complete backs," Marrone said. "Our goal, when we put a back back there, is to make sure they're complete backs."

Fantasy Impact: 

Spiller is one of the most explosive backs in the league, but saw inconsistent touches when both he and Fred Jackson were healthy in years past. It sounds as if Marrone plans to feed Spiller the ball early and often.
