Spiller to start over Jackson Sunday

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey announced Wednesday that C.J. Spiller will start Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

This season C.J. Spiller has split playing time with Fred Jackson, who returned to practice this week.

"C.J. will start, but we're still going to play Fred," said Gailey. "It takes two. It does. So Fred will get quite a few snaps, but C.J. will start and get the majority of the snaps."

The former Clemson All-American has had three starts this season, but all have come with Jackson out of the lineup.

Spiller leads the team with 723 yards rushing and averages almost seven yards per carry.

"I'm just going continue to go out there and do what I've been doing," Spiller said. "It's not like we're not going to use 22 (Jackson). We're going to use him, he's a playmaker on our team, he's a leader on our team. I'm just going to go out there when my number's called and try to help my team win. Nothing's going to really change the way that I've been preparing now that I'll be starting on Sunday."
