Bills' plan for RB C.J. Spiller: Give him the ball 'until he throws up'
We know C.J. Spiller is going to be a huge part of the Bills' offense this season. That's why he is being taken in the top half of the first round in most drafts. Depending on how quickly E.J. Manuel develops, Spiller be the Bills' entire offense this season. But just in case you were wondering how he will be used, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett laid out the team's simple plan for the electrifying runner.
"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."
Good to know. Spiller, at under six feet and 200 pounds, will take on a little more injury risk with that kind of workload, but this is what the Bills should do if they want to score points. Now if Spiller could get the majority of the goal-line carries, that would be sweet.
