Former Clemson standout C.J. Spiller had arthroscopic surgery on his knee on Friday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Spiller was seen in Pensacola, Florida over the weekend with a pair of crutches near the office location of famous surgeon Dr. James Andrews.
He missed a scrimmage last Friday and Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens and will actually miss the entire preseason slate of games.
However, he is expected to be ready for the regular season opener Sept.13 against the Arizona Cardinals.
If Spiller doesn't make it back for Week 1, the Saints still have running backs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson at their disposal.
Spiller rushed 668 times for 3,321 yards (5,550 all-purpose yards) and 12 touchdowns during his time with the Bills. During an injury-shortened 2014 season (broken collarbone), Spiller had 78 rushes for 300 yards and also had 19 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown. His best season came in 2012 when he had an impressive 1,703 total yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. He was drafted by the Bills with the 9th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft.
