Although C.J. Spiller could be held out of Sunday’s game by head coach Doug Marrone with his persistent ankle injury, there are areas where the running back believes the ankle has made strides.
“It felt good. I just got out there and ran around,” said Spiller after not participating in Thursday’s practice. “I didn’t do too much cutting. It really was nothing new. I’m just trying to get it better each and every day. I thought yesterday the rest was good for it. I was able to get a lot of treatment on it. Same thing today. Did a lot of stuff, did a lot of movement with it. It responded well. During individuals I was able to do a lot of stuff without even a limp. That kind of surprised me. The good thing is that everything is pointing in the north direction.”
Spiller realizes he doesn’t have final say, but he remains encouraged about his ankle’s progress.
“There are things I’m doing this week that I wasn’t able to do last week. So that’s always an encouraging sign. To me I think that’s improvement, but I’m not the trainer,” said Spiller. “I can only tell them how my body is responding. From the way that it’s responded I think it has improved since I injured it.”
