Injury Report: C.J. Spiller Will Play Tonight, Bills vs Browns Thursday Night Fantasy Football Preview

Bills: C.J. Spiller (Ankle, Will Play): Apparently no drama here, as Spiller will play tonight, according to KFFL.com.

My guess is that it’ll be a full on timeshare tonight, so Spiller won’t...

Regardless of percentage, Spiller ready to play

BY DAN BEGNOCHEIt was pretty apparent during the Buffalo Bills' loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday that C.J. Spiller, who entered the game with an ailing quad and left with a bum ankle, wasn't 100 percent. But in talking with reporters Monday, it seemed like Spiller didn't really care how he was labeled, he just wants in on the team's Thursday night matchup with...

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
