Jackson, Spiller Practicing Friday

For a second straight day, Buffalo Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller are on the practice field despite dealing with lingering injuries to the knee and shoulder, respectively.

Jackson, who is expected to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday, has been limited in each of the past two days only two-plus week removed from a sprained LCL. Though he's likely going to suit up, it's still unclear how much of a workload he'll be able to handle. Jackson has already told reporters that he'll be wearing a knee brace if he plays.

Spiller, meanwhile, is practicing for a second straight day after missing Wednesday's practice with the sprained shoulder he suffered in last Sunday's win over Cleveland. He was limited on Thursday, and will likely be listed as limited again today.

We'll know after practice is over how each runner is listed on the injury report, as well as the likelihood of the two star tailbacks suiting up. Jackson seems like a shoo-in at this point, and at the very least, Spiller may end up being a game-time decision if he gets through today's practice without an issue.

Jackson Likely To Play, Barring Setback

Spiller May Practice This Week

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller will not practice on Wednesday, but head coach Chan Gailey did not rule out the possibility of Spiller getting reps by the end of the week when discussing the matter before practice today.

"He’s not going to practice today, but we’re hoping we’ll get him a few reps maybe by the end of the week," Gailey said (via BuffaloBills.com). "I don’t know for sure. We’ll see."

Spiller spoke along the same lines, claiming that he'd like to get back to practice by week's end. If he gets any time on the field before Friday, his chances of playing on Sunday against the New England Patriots increase - and they'll do so dramatically if he's able to do more than just positional work (i.e. he does team work, too).

In the mean time, the general feeling around the situation remains the same: it seems unlikely that Spiller will be available on Sunday. It seems that Spiller and the Bills are hopeful, however, that they'll be able to sneak him onto the field. In the meantime, opening day starter Fred Jackson is back on the field, and all signs point to him being able to play on Sunday.
