Things had not been going very well for the Buffalo Bills rushing offense in recent weeks, but it looks as though it could get much, much worse after the team’s top two running backs, Fred Jackson and C.J.

Jackson left the contest with a groin injury, while Spiller suffered a shoulder injury. Both players were carted off the field and were quickly ruled out.

According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the initial diagnosis for Spiller is a broken collarbone, while Jackson will need an MRI on his groin.

Back to .500 (3-3) after a loss to the New England Patriots in Week 6, the Buffalo Bills will look to get back to a winning record and keep themselves in the AFC East race on Sunday when they play the Minnesota Vikings at 1 p.m. ET in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills’ most notable inactives from last week, wide receiver Mike Williams and safety Aaron Williams, are back on the 46-man gameday roster this week. A spot opened back up for Mike Williams with Marquise Goodwin being out with a hamstring injury, while the return of Aaron Williams means that fellow safety Kenny Ladler, signed off the practice squad prior to last week’s game, is inactive Sunday.

Waiver Wire Pickups

Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders (Owned in 4% of Yahoo! Leagues): The young gunslinger is perhaps the only glimmer of hope for Oakland Raiders fans. After throwing four touchdowns against a very tough San Diego defense, he is one of the better options as a No. 2 quarterback for the coming bye weeks. He is building a connection with his bevy of wide receivers and has the chance to put up top-15 numbers every week from here on in.

Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (30% Y!): After sitting out for more than a month with a nerve injury in his throwing shoulder, Palmer returned Sunday against the Washington Redskins and revitalized the Arizona Cardinals’ passing game by throwing for 250 yards. Arizona loves to throw the ball, and Palmer has good amount of weapons. Pick him up as a streamer quarterback option for bye weeks.
