C.J. Spiller injury: knee, thigh tweak not considered serious

Rich Schultz

C.J. Spiller left Sunday's loss to the Jets with a knee injury, but he told reporters Monday that it's minor and that he expects to play in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller left yesterday's 27-20 loss to the New York Jets early with what the team called a knee injury. The Bills running back told reporters on Monday morning that he does not expect to miss next Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, however.

Spiller will receive treatment on the injury this week, but is worried less about the injury itself and more about making sure that he has all of his usual burst when he takes the field.

Even though Spiller referred to the injury as a twisted knee, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the injury is actually to Spiller's thigh.

Regardless of the exact nature of the injury, it's looking like Spiller will be on the field as usual when the Bills host the Ravens this coming weekend. The team will need him back on track after a 10-carry, nine-yard performance against the Jets. So far this season, to the surprise of no one, Buffalo's offense has gone as Spiller has gone - and he's had two ineffective games and one very good one.
