Bills running back C.J. Spiller is still being bothered by his ankle injury. According to head coach Doug Marrone, Spiller's ankle is not 100 percent, "but I think it's getting better and better ...." This was backed up by Spiller participating in Thursday's practice, albeit in limited fashion. He sat out Wednesday's practice.
Wide receiver Stevie Johnson missed Week 6 because of a back injury, but Marrone said the team "didn't notice any limitations at all" when he tested it out Wednesday. Johnson was upgraded to full practice on Thursday.
Johnson will be ready to play against the Dolphins. However, with three catches and 18 yards in his last two games, and Thaddeus Lewis under center, you should look for better options if you are starting three WRs.
Spiller is tough to judge because his lack of health has kept him from seeing a healthy amount of work. He's basically limited to 10-12 touches per game until he gets right. But he is such a dangerous runner, and Miami is the tied for most fantasy points allowed to running backs this season, I would still put Spiller in RB2 territory. I just can't quit him.
