C.J. Spiller won't lack for touches in Buffalo

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller won't lack for touches this season.

The Bills have big plans for the all-purpose standout.

Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett says the Bills will give Spiller the ball "until he throws up," in a radio interview with WGR 550 in Buffalo.

"It's real simple: We're going to give him the ball until he throws up," Hackett said, "So he's either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let's just put it that way."

Spiller emerged as a star last season when he rushed for 1,244 yards and averaged six yards per carry.

This could be an even bigger year for him.

"Switching to this system and the tempo we've created, it's a completely different way that we call the game," Hackett said. "It's more of an attacking thing, and you get to put pressure on the defensive coordinator."
