ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- A look at snaps played by Buffalo Bills skill-position players in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, while analyzing how the totals reflect the way players were utilized (totals provided by the NFL):

QB Jeff Tuel -- 80 of 80
WR Steve Johnson -- 77 of 80
TE Scott Chandler -- 74 of 80
WR Robert Woods -- 49 of 80
WR T.J. Graham -- 46 of 80
RB Fred Jackson -- 41 of 80
WR Marquise Goodwin -- 29 of 80
TE Lee Smith -- 25 of 80
RB C.J. Spiller -- 23 of 80
RB Tashard Choice -- 16 of 80
FB Frank Summers -- 9 of 80
WR Marcus Easley -- 8 of 80
TE Chris Gragg -- 2 of 80
WR Chris Hogan -- 1 of 80

ANALYSIS: The Bills gave C.J. Spiller a week off from practice to nurse a high-ankle sprain, but his playing time didn't spike Sunday. He played just 29 percent of snaps, two weeks after being limited to 21 percent in Miami. Obviously, the results for Spiller were much improved over his performances prior to sitting out in New Orleans. He rushed for 9.7 yards per carry, including a 61-yard scamper to begin the second half. All eyes now will be on whether Spiller can ramp up his snaps and avoid re-injury, with two more games until the bye week. ... Woods' third-quarter leg injury limited him to 49 snaps. He's been over 90 percent all season, making him a major contributor to the team. His injury bears watching.
