ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- C.J. Spiller said recently that he could "outrun most guys," even on his bum ankle.

On Wednesday, the running back outran the Buffalo Bills' injury report, removed from it for the first time since Week 3.

According to coach Doug Marrone, that means Spiller's ankle injury is officially a thing of the past.

"When they're off the injury report, then I feel they're fine," Marrone said. "The one thing you want to know as a coach is, even if a guy has a little bit of something, I'd rather put him on the injury report so this way we can monitor it and watch it. But as soon as someone comes off the injury report, I'm thinking that he's full go."

However, Marrone said Spiller, who played just 29 percent of the snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, may not necessarily see a spike in his playing time.

"I think it all depends on how the game goes and how he's doing, but I did talk to him today and I asked him how he felt, and he said he felt good. So that's exciting," Marrone said. "I think the more we can get his hands on the ball, there's an opportunity for him to make a big play. So that's something we're always striving for."
