Bills RBs C.J. Spiller has sprained ankle, Fred Jackson has sprained MCL

With a short turnaround for their Thursday Night Football matchup, it's unclear if the Bills will have both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson available against the Browns.

At this point, it appears that Spiller, who sprained his ankle, is more at risk of missing Thursday's game than Jackson, who has a sprained MCL.

"I'm going to do as much treatment as I can to get ready for Thursday, but it's a short week, so it's going to be tough," Spiller said, per ESPN's Mike Rodak. "If I can go out there at least 85 or 90 percent, I'm going to play."

"It's not as significant [as last season]. It's something that we can manage, and I expect to play," Jackson said (when describing his knee injury and his status for Thursday).

In today's win, Spiller carried the ball 23 times for 77 yards and Jackson had 16 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown.

While Spiller has had double-digit fantasy points in only one of four games, Jackson has actually done so in four consecutive games and is on pace for nearly 1,500 yards from scrimmage.

Jackson now has 48 carries for 256 yards (5.38 yards per carry) and 13 receptions for 113 yards on the season. Spiller has 66 carries for 230 yards (3.48 YPC) plus nine receptions for 29 yards and no touchdowns.

Including Giovani Bernard (3.7 YPC) and BenJarvus Green-Ellis (2.2 YPC) today, every running back the Browns have faced this season has averaged less than four yards per carry. In the first three games, the Browns faced Lamar Miller (0.3 YPC), Ray Rice (3.0 YPC) and Adrian Peterson (3.5 YPC).
