Fresh off their biggest win of the season, as they beat the Green Bay Packers 21-13 on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills are set to get another boost as arguably their most dynamic offensive player, running back C.J Spiller, is being added back to the team’s active roster from injured reserve with a return designation.
After a week of evaluating his progress, Bills coach Doug Marrone announced Friday that will be on the 53-man team and is probable to play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
It’s unknown if Spiller will be 100 percent after missing eight weeks with a broken collarbone, or what role he will play in his return to the offense. At the least, he gives the Bills offense—which certainly needs any spark it can get—another weapon to work with in its final two games of the regular season, as Buffalo makes a push for a potential AFC playoff spot.
