Spiller, Jackson on practice field Tuesday

October, 1, 2013
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson were both on the practice field Tuesday, the team's lone practice before facing the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night.

Jackson, wearing a brace on his left knee, took part in individual drills, the only portion of practice open to reporters. Spiller did not participate in individual drills and later rode an exercise bike.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported Monday that Spiller will play Thursday night.

Meanwhile, cornerback Aaron Williams pulled out of individual drills to work with the strength and conditioning staff. Williams, who had two interceptions in Sunday's win, did not finish the game with a lower back injury.

Cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) and safety Jairus Byrd (foot) continued to work with the scout team during defensive back drills, and with Williams out, that left Justin Rogers, Nickell Robey, and Brandon Burton lining up at cornerback in the positional walk-through.

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, who fractured his hand in the season opener, was catching passes for the first time since the injury.

Cornerbacks Ron Brooks and Stephon Gilmore did not participate in practice.
