C.J. Spiller moved to active roster

The Buffalo Bills have cleared running back C.J. Spiller (collarbone) to play and he will be added to the active roster this week, coach Doug Marrone said Monday.

Marrone did not commit to having Spiller, who has been on injured reserve with a designation to return, play in Sunday's game at the Oakland Raiders.

"I'd like to see more participation before we make that decision," he said.

Fantasy Impact:

Spiller returned to practice on Dec. 3 after missing six weeks with a broken collarbone. The Bills had until Dec. 24 to decide whether to place him on their 53-man roster. If Spiller plays, it would likely mean Bryce Brown loses playing time and the Bills ride with Spiller, Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon.

Raiders Beat: RB1 job 'appears to be' Latavius Murray's for the rest of the season

Raiders beat writer Bill Williamson on Latavius Murray's recent ascension:

The job appears to be Murray’s for the rest of the season. He had 23 carries for 76 yards against the 49ers. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have been disappointments this season. It is likely neither will be back next year. Thus, Murray will get the chance in the final three games to show Oakland it doesn’t have to worry about finding a lead back. Murray is an interesting player. After missing his rookie year last season with an injury, the former sixth-round draft pick started very slowly. But he has played well in the past three weeks, highlighted by his 90-yard touchdown run against the Chiefs on Nov. 20. The Chiefs will clearly be keying on Murray in this game. It will be fascinating to see who wins this battle.

Fantasy Impact:

After saying that Murray wouldn't be the workhorse, the team gave Murray workhorse-type carries in a grind-it-out win against the 49ers in Week 14. Murray has a terrific matchup against the Chiefs, who have yielded 4.9 YPC this season. The question is -- can Derek Carr provide enough of a threat in the passing game to keep Kansas City from keying on Murray?

Denarius Moore's season continued on its strange path when the Oakland Raiders wide receiver suffered knee and ankle injuries, though the team is not saying how.

Interim coach Tony Sparano listed Moore on the team's injury report Wednesday when the veteran receiver did not practice. Sparano did not go into details about Moore's injury, other than to say it did not happen at the Raiders' facilities.

"He suffered an injury away from the building," Sparano said.

Coming off three straight 1,000-yard campaigns, workhorse back Frank Gore has struggled to move the ball on the ground for a milquetoast Niners offense that laid an egg on Sunday against the two-win Oakland Raiders.

San Francisco came into the year hoping to manage Gore's carries and keep the 31-year-old bruiser fresh, but his 14.8 totes per game -- his lowest since 2005 -- have had the opposite effect.

"It's hard to get in a rhythm," Gore said this week, per the San Francisco Chronicle. "As players, you have to be in a rhythm on the field to be successful. And it's been tough all year to get in a rhythm."
