C.J. Spiller left Sunday's game early with a shoulder injury, and we hadn't gotten an update on the NFL's leading rusher until now.
Bills still gathering information on CJ Spiller's injured shoulder and an MRI is scheduled for Monday— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 23, 2012
Buffalo have now turned to third-string RB Tashard Choice in Spiller's absense, as the team lost starting RB Fred Jackson with an LCL injury in week one. Should Spiller miss significant time it will deal a huge blow to their offense, and to QB Ryan Fitzgerald, who utilized the elusive RB as an effective backfield receiver.
The Bills remain in control on Sunday's game, currently up 24-14 over the Cleveland Browns, but without Spiller their offense is clearly hurting, and they lack a much needed 'big play' ability in their offense. The Bills have turned to Choice, and he has been quite productive totaling 86 yards on 17 carries thus far.
