Bills RB C.J. Spiller injures shoulder

By James Walker

The Buffalo Bills are having poor luck with injuries to their running backs.

First, starting tailback Fred Jackson injured his knee in Week 1 and hasn’t returned. Now, C.J. Spiller hurt his shoulder in the first half against the Cleveland Browns. Spiller, the NFL's leading rusher entering Sunday, went to the locker room for X-rays and has yet to return. The Bills lead Cleveland, 14-0, in the second quarter.

If Spiller doesn't return, Buffalo is down to third-string tailback Tashard Choice against Cleveland. The most important thing is for Buffalo to leave Cleveland with a win and worry about Spiller’s injury later.
