Bills head coach Doug Marrone made his weekly appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550 and was asked about the availability of C.J. Spiller, who has yet to practice this week. Here’s what Marrone had to say.
“I think we’ve got to make a good decision,” said Marrone. ”Player safety comes into it and the ability to put those players out on the field to be productive. As long as we have time to evaluate it we’re going to take as much time as we possibly can.”
The follow up question was Buffalo’s plan if Spiller doesn’t play.
“He is a dynamic player and he’s a part of an offense,” said Marrone. ”Obviously we have Fred Jackson back there and Tashard Choice and we can make some moves and maybe bring Ronnie Wingo up as an option for us right now. There are a lot of things we can do. We have faith in the players that we have there.
“Obviously it does hurt with C.J. not being out there. He is truly a weapon. It is what it is. When he’s out there you want to make sure that he’s healthy. You don’t want to put him at risk.”
