Spiller suffered a broken collarbone against the Vikings and will have surgery on Monday, October 20. He might be lost for the season.

He is listed as probable on this week's official injury report.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 15): Spiller was activated from the IR / Designated To Return list, and apparently the Bills plan all along has been to play him by the end of the season.

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): Spiller was activated from IR, and apparently the Bills plan all along has been to play him by the end of the season. They are still alive for the playoffs, so if Spiller can help in Week 16, they could use him, and he is the quintessential home run hitter at RB.

General News (Fri Dec 19): partially participated in Friday's practice but is still expected to play this week.

General News (Tue Dec 16): will reclaim a roster spot this week, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Spiller has been cleared and it will be decided if he plays based on how he practices, Marrone added. When Spiller returns to the field, he will take a few snaps away from Fred Jackson.

Week 16: at Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The old war horse Fred Jackson has worked his way back to health, and is now the featured back for the Bills, with 20/71/0 rushing and 3/27/0 receiving during the upset of Green Bay last weekend. This, compared to 6/26/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving for Anthony Dixon, and 4/20/0 rushing with 1/40/0 receiving to Bryce Brown's credit, illustrates the lions' share of the work at running back is flowing to Jackson here in December. The Raiders' rush D has averaged 125.4 rushing yards allowed per game (25th in the NFL) and one TD allowed per game (14 given up over 14 contests this year). K.C. managed 27/93/1 rushing vs. Oakland last week; San Francisco had 18/97/0 rushing in the Black Hole two weeks ago. Of late, the Raiders' defensive front is playing with some vigor. Jackson is playing well in his featured role, but he's got an improving defensive front to deal with on Sunday - this looks like a neutral matchup for both sides (neither has a clear edge over the other).

Bills | C.J. Spiller probable for Week 16 (Fri Dec 19, 12:47 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) has been added to the active roster and is probable for Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Our View: Spiller might not play a large role, so don't play him in any format, but it does take a little edge off of Fred Jackson's upside this week.

Bills | C.J. Spiller not yet on roster (Wed Dec 17, 07:00 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (collarbone) has not yet been added to the active roster from the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The Bills must add him by Dec. 24, but they must make that move by Saturday, Dec. 20, if they want him to be eligible to play in Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Our View: Spiller was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and he said he's feeling good. The team hasn't made a decision on whether he'll play against the Raiders.

Bills | C.J. Spiller limited (Wed Dec 17, 02:04 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Our View: Spiller is back in action, but the team is wisely easing him back. He's expected to be available this week as the Bills take on the Raiders. If Spiller does enough in practice to play on Sunday, we like him as a 'what the heck' flex in Week 16.
