C.J. Spiller does not currently have a big role in Buffalo's offense.
Ritchie, an NFL fullback for seven years, was aghast at the Buffalo's inability to use rookie running back C.J. Spiller more in the offense and not using running back Fred Jackson more.
"They have him back there returning kickoffs," Ritchie said. "He's explosive, but get the ball into his hands other than special teams. He had five carries [Sunday]. That's not enough. He and Fred Jackson ... Fred Jackson, only 12 carries. They both averaged over 6 yards per carry. They need to get that run game going in Buffalo because the passing game certainly isn't working."
Spiller, the ninth overall draft choice, gained 31 yards on his five rush attempts with a long of 19 yards. He caught one pass for 3 yards. He returned seven kickoffs for a 20.9-yard average.
For the season, Spiller has 19 carries for 80 yards and no touchdowns and 13 catches for 48 yards and one touchdown. He also has a kickoff return for a touchdown.
Ritchie also delivered some pointed observations about Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's erratic arm.
