Spiller gets 40 percent of snaps, looks forward to bye-week rest


Bills running back C.J. Spiller played 27 snaps on Sunday against the New York Jets, his most in seven games, since he suffered a high-ankle sprain against Baltimore in Week Four.

While Spiller and the Bills' rushers overall had a miserable day against the Jets' No. 1-ranked run defense, Spiller said today he's looking forward to being close to full strength when the Bills get back from their bye week.

"It just gives it another week to let it rest and let it continue to heal," Spiller said. "It's definitely getting better. It's going to feel good not to play with braces on it for the remainder of the season."

Spiller gained 6 yards on 13 carries. Fred Jackson gained 34 yards on 12 carries. The Bills overall averaged 1.8 yards (68 total) on 38 rushes.

Here were the other snap totals for the Bills against the Jets:

OFFENSE: All five offensive linemen and QB EJ Manuel played all 67 snaps. Also: T.J. Graham 63, Marquise Goodwin 57, Lee Smith 50, Scott Chandler 42, Fred Jackson 36, C.J. Spiller 27, Frank Summer 25, Chris Hogan 19, Chris Gragg 9, Tashard Choice 4, Marcus Easley 3.

DEFENSE: Kiko Alonso 58, Stephon Gilmore 58, Mario Williams 58, Jairus Byrd 57, Leodis McKelvin 56, Aaron Williams 56, Marcell Dareus 49, Kyle Williams 47, Nickell Robey 40, Manny Lawson 36, Alan Branch 34, Jerry Hughes 22, Da'Norris Searcy 20, Arthur Moats 18, Corbin Bryant 14, Stefan Charles 8, Jim Leonhard 4, Ron Brooks 3.

    Has Alonso missed a snap yet? Amazing. Hoping it's not too much.
