Bills' Spiller Stays Put at WR For Now
With the injuries to Roscoe Parrish, Marcus Easley and most recently Donald Jones, the Buffalo Bills decided to use 2010 first round pick C.J. Spiller at wide receiver against the New York Giants on Sunday.
So far, so good for Spiller when lined up at receiver. He roped in five catches on five targets for 39 yards. Head coach Chan Gailey was impressed by the running back's transition to the outside through one game.
"He did a good job. He did a very good job," he said. "I can see that being his role here for the short-term. Maybe not long-term, but for the short-term."
The "short-term" would seem to indicate until the time Jones is ready to return from a high ankle sprain. His original estimated time out last week ranged from him missing anywhere from four to six weeks.
