Gauging C.J.’s progress

Posted by Chris Brown on November 25, 2011 – 1:37 pm

While fans might have their opinions of C.J. Spiller as a back in the NFL, Buffalo’s head coaching staff believes the lack of opportunities for Spiller this season has left the jury out on just how much progress he has made in his second NFL season.

Spiller has had just 21 carries this season, due mainly to the ridiculous production of Fred Jackson. But now with Jackson injured reserve Chan Gailey and his staff will have the chance to see how much progress Spiller has made.

“I think we will really not know totally about C.J. until we get to the end of the season,” Gailey said. “I hope, but I can’t expect him to come out and rush for 140 yards or 120 yards like Fred was doing, but at the same time he’s certainly capable of doing that. We’ll see where this takes us.”
