Found September 30, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
The Buffalo Bills beat the Baltimore Ravens yesterday by a field goal, but saw both running backs C.J. Spiller (leg) and Fred Jackson (knee) leave the field with injuries.  This on a day the Bills rushed the ball 55 times!  Spiller got 23 carries, Jackson saw 16 and EJ Manuel took off 11 times.  As a team they rushed for over 200 yards, with Jackon leading the way gaining 87 and was the only one to score a touchdown.  Tashard Choice will get a bump in touches on Thursday Night Football.Spiller did have an X-Ray done on his left ankle, but was told by staff his ankle was not broken.  Jackson has an MCL sprain and that knocked him out for the season last year.  With the Bills playing the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, my suggestion is to find other RBs for Week 5!  The BYE week will see Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, Le'Veon Bell and Alfred Morris sitting so make sure you put in a waiver claim!
