Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens and is uncertain of his status for next Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Browns.
Spiller left in the third quarter Sunday after rushing 21 times for 65 yards. He returned to the game, rushing twice more for 12 yards, but was limping in the locker room following the game.
"I'm going to do as much treatment as I can to get ready for Thursday, but it's a short week, so it's going to be tough," Spiller said. "If I can go out there at least 85 or 90 percent, I'm going to play."
It's been a slow start for Spiller and owners who spent a mid-first rounder on him are likely suffering, too. To make matters worse, if you handcuffed Spiller with Fred Jackson, he was also banged up (MCL sprain). Tashard Choice could be next up to play on what is a short week for the Bills - they play Thursday night in a tough matchup at Cleveland. Spiller said if he can get his ankle to 85-percent, he would play Thursday night.
