Gailey: Spiller odd man out for Bills
Fred Jackson's success has been a big part of the Buffalo Bills early-season success, so much so that it has made C.J. Spiller somewhat expandable in terms of the offense.
“There’s only one football,” Gailey told the Buffalo News. “When you’ve got some good receivers and you’ve got a tight end who has done some good things and you’ve got a running back playing well right now, you can’t do everything you’d like to do. We’ve got some ideas and thoughts (on Spiller), but it just hasn’t presented itself at this time the way we’d like to do it. Unfortunately right now it’s like he’s the odd man out. It may not be that way the whole season. But right now it is. I still think he’s going to be a very good player for us over the long haul."
Spiller hasn't done much since arriving as the Bills' No. 1 pick in 2010, gaining only 283 yards rushing last year, and just 94 thus far this year. But as long as the Bills keep winning and Jackson keeps producing, the fact that Buffalo isn't getting much from its first-round pick a year ago will be pushed into the background.
