ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - With C.J. Spiller's ankle sprain lingering, Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone said a decision on whether he'll play this Sunday will not be made until later in the week.
"C.J. wants to go. He definitely wants to go," said Marrone. "I think that we’re going to have to evaluate that during the week because I think we’ll have to make a good decision... We just have to get him over this hump and we haven’t been able to do it for three weeks."
Spiller was not keen on the idea of sitting out, despite only carrying the ball six times for 11 yards Sunday against Miami.
"My goal is I want to be out there with my teammates," said Spiller. "There’s not a doubt in my mind that I want to sit here and say ‘oh no I don’t want to play,’ that’s not in my DNA, that’s not how I was raised. You go out there and compete; you’re going to get banged up, but that’s how you have to look at it."
Marrone said his decision on Spiller will not be tied to the health of Fred Jackson, who also missed practice Wednesday. Jackson said he will play Sunday, and expects his MCL to bother him for most of the season.
