Bills vs. Raiders injury report, 2014 NFL Week 16: C.J. Spiller probable

New, comments

It's looking very much like the Buffalo Bills will have one of their most explosive offensive playmakers back in the fold in time for their final push toward the postseason.

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller will be a part of the 53-man roster for Sunday's pivotal showdown with the Oakland Raiders, and he has been listed as probable to play.

Spiller has been practicing with the team for the last three weeks following October 20 surgery to repair a broken clavicle, but was only cleared to play earlier this week. Evidently, the team feels comfortable enough to put him back into the lineup, though how big his role is over the final two weeks of the season remains to be seen. Everyone is aware, however, that Buffalo's sluggish offense could use a shot in the arm during their final playoff push.

A slew of other Bills players are listed as probable alongside Spiller, including: Anthony Dixon, Jarius Wynn, Stephon Gilmore, Da'Norris Searcy, Duke Williams, Dan Carpenter, and Marcus Thigpen. The news is especially good in the defensive backfield, where both Searcy and Williams missed large chunks of last week's win over Green Bay.

The only player listed as questionable is reserve tight end Chris Gragg. He may have a hard time seeing the field again even if he is healthy enough to play, with MarQueis Gray playing well and contributing special teams reps.
