From NBC Sports:

“I thought C.J. did a couple of nice things there,” said coach Chan Gailey. “He hit some runs, hit some creases. He ran up in there. He held onto the ball. . . . We wanted to look at him tonight to see where he’s made progress and I thought he did make progress. That was a positive.”

This is how BuffaloBills.com worded it:

“Spiller’s first three carries went for 19 yards. He also had a couple of receptions for 11 yards.”

They completely decided to omit the glaring fact Spiller’s next three carries went for -9 yards. Fred Jackson, who avoids negative plays, rushed four times for 34 yards. Spiller has 13 yards on eight preseason carries.

We understand the Bills want Spiller to be a huge factor. Perhaps he will be.

He still has a long way to go to prove he’s a better player than Fred Jackson.
