Bills RBs Spiller, Jackson to face Browns

Buffalo running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson will both

play Thursday night against the Browns after being slowed by


Jackson, who leads the Bills with 256 rushing yards and two

touchdowns, sprained his left knee last week in a win over

Baltimore and will wear a brace. Spiller sprained his ankle in the

third quarter against the Ravens and returned to practice Wednesday

after missing the two previous days.

Last season against Cleveland, Spiller went out with a shoulder

injury in the first half and third-stringer Tashard Choice ran for

91 yards in Buffalo’s 24-14 win.

Also, the Bills will be without starting cornerback Stephon

Williams and free safety Jairus Byrd.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden will back up starter Brian

Hoyer. Weeden sprained his thumb in Week 2 and Hoyer is 2-0 in two

starts. Jason Campbell is inactive.
