Aug 24 2014 - RB C.J. Spiller had nine carries for 36 yards, but had an 18-yard run and a 12-yard pass reception wiped out by penalties. He also lost a fumble on a pass play that led to the Bucs' first touchdown.
Aug 17 2014 - RB C.J. Spiller, for some reason, was on the field deep for the opening kickoff, and he returned it 42 yards, but it was certainly a surprise that the team's No. 1 running back was in that situation.
Aug 15 2014 - RB C.J. Spiller continues to keep his head down and not pay attention to rumors about his possibly being traded. GM Doug Whaley denied that he has had any contact with any team regarding a trade for Spiller.
Dec 18 2013 - CJ Spiller has been stuffed 27 times, or on 16.7 percent of his 162 rushing attempts this year, the highest mark in the league.
Dec 9 2013 - RB C.J. Spiller rushed 11 times for 22 yards and caught one pass for 26 yards in yet another disappointing showing.
Dec 2 2013 - RB C.J. Spiller reinjured his ankle in the third quarter and was not able to finish the game.
Oct 30 2013 - RB C.J. Spiller was limited to individual drills and his availability for Sunday due to a high ankle sprain is still in doubt.
Oct 28 2013 - RB C.J. Spiller had been trying to play through a sprained ankle the past three games, but coach Doug Marrone finally decided to shut him down for the New Orleans game.
Spiller was trying to gut throuh it until Marrone told him to rest. His ankle, first hurt Sept. 30 against Baltimore, was not getting better, and he needed to rest it, so the Bills allowed him to do that. All week before the trip to New Orleans, Spiller kept saying that he felt better and he wanted to play, but in the end, he also realized it was the smart thing to do.
"I wasn't ready," Spiller admitted. "It was Coach Marrone's decision. I respected that. Everybody knew that I wanted to play. I wanted to help us win. But it was best for me so I can get back to playing normally."
Whether Spiller returns to face the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday remains to be seen.
Oct 25 2013 - CB C.J. Spiller is doubtful for Sunday's game at the New Orleans Saints because of an ankle injury.
Spiller said earlier this week that he feels "10 times better" but coach Doug Marrone countered that he may sit Spiller. Thursday, Marrone said Spiller would be a game-time decision.
Spiller has rushed for 362 yards with a touchdown in seven games, averaging 4.0 yards per carry.
Oct 25 2013 - RB C.J. Spiller did not practice Thursday due to an ankle injury, his second day of inactivity. It now looks quite possible that the Bills may opt to make Spiller inactive for the Saints game in the hope that he can get healthy.
