Although Bills running back C.J. Spiller said Sunday that it would be "tough" for him to play on his sprained ankle this Thursday, it sounds like he will end up toughing it out. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Monday that, according to a league source, Spiller will play against the Browns despite his sprained ankle.
Fred Jackson , who suffered a sprained MCL on Sunday, has already said he expects to be ready for this showdown pitting a pair of 2-2 teams. Neither back will be playing at 100 percent, and we'll probably see a healthy dose of Tashard Choice . The Browns are in the bottom 10 of fantasy points allowed to running backs, so it's not a great matchup for a couple of injured players, but here's hoping we get a clearer picture on health of both running backs before the game. They may both play, but how much is the real question. Spiller and Jackson look like a couple of very risky starts right now.
