Spiller suffered a thigh injury against the Bills, but it is not serious and he will likely be in the lineup against the Baltimore Ravens next weekend, according to Adam Schefter and Mike Rodak of ESPN.
Yes, C.J. Spiller left the Bills-Jets game with a knee injury, but he was playing badly well before he headed to the locker room.
Spiller ran the ball 10 times for a grand total of nine yards. Week 1 was a frustrating 41-yard affair, while the game against the Carolina Panthers was unsurprising until he ripped off a 46-yard run. On top of that, he has yet to find the end zone.
Spiller was supposed to take over the heavy lifting on offense while EJ Manuel worked through his rookie season, but the last two games have seen a lot of his carries usurped by Fred Jackson. And Jackson has looked better to boot. It may be because Manuel is in his first season and teams aren't respecting the pass, but are instead stacking against the run.
Still, the season hasn't been very kind to Spiller, and if the injury is serious, it's about to get even worse.
