Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller both questionable for Week 4

Buffalo Bills running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both listed as questionable for Week 4 against the New England Patriots due to injury. However, head coach Chan Gailey said that both players have a legitimate chance to play on Sunday.

Jackson has remained optimistic that he will be able to suit up and told reporters that the only way he was going to miss the game was going to be if something unexpected happens prior to game time. Earlier this week, Jackson said that he was 70-75 percent certain that he will be playing. He is attempting to return from the LCL sprain sustained in Week 1 against the New York Jets.

In terms of Spiller, it was widely expected that he would be unavailable against the Patriots after suffering an AC joint sprain against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. However, the back has participated in practice the last two days and it seems as though it will be up to the medical staff to determine whether he plays and, if so, how prominent his role will be.

Running back Tashard Choice is available regardless of the status of Jackson or Spiller.
