Spiller active, Byrd inactive for Bills
By Mike Rodak
CLEVELAND -- Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller is active for Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Browns.
Spiller injured his ankle in Sunday's win against the Ravens and was seen limping in the locker room as late as Tuesday.
Cornerback Leodis McKelvin, who suffered a hamstring injury in Week 3, is active. Meanwhile, safety Jairus Byrd will miss his fifth game of the season; he is inactive.
It is not immediately clear if McKelvin being active means that Aaron Williams, who has played cornerback since McKelvin's injury, will return to safety.
Offensive lineman Sam Young is inactive for the first time this season, as top backup lineman Doug Legursky is active for the first time this season. Legursky suffered a knee injury in the preseason finale.
Full list of Bills inactives:
S Jairus Byrd
OL Sam Young
TE Chris Gragg
CB Stephon Gilmore
CB Ron Brooks
WR Marquise Goodwin
K Dustin Hopkins
