Thursday Night Football injury report: Bills RBs C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson active

The Bills have their top two running backs able to play tonight versus the Browns. C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER and Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson are both officially after each sustained injury during Week 4's win over the Ravens. Spiller sprained an ankle while Jackson sprained a knee ligament. Jackson got in more practice time as he practiced on both Monday and Tuesday. Spiller practiced very little this week.
On the Browns side, quarterback Brandon Weeden @bweeden3 is active after missing the past couple of games with a sprained thumb on his right (throwing) hand. But he'll be the backup to Brian Hoyer @bhoyer8.

Fantasy Analysis:

If I own Spiller, I'm doing whatever I can to avoid him tonight. He will be at far less than 100 percent, and I wouldn't be surprised if Jackson handles the vast majority of carries. Buffalo is on the road in a short week and going up against a defense that hasn't allowed any team, much less any player, to rush for 100 yards this season. I would much rather start Jackson than Spiller.
Hoyer is on the QB2 radar after a couple of stellar performances. The Bills' secondary is all sorts of banged up. To that point, Bills safety Jarius Byrd, and cornerback Stephon Gilmore are inactive tonight. Start Josh Gordon @JOSH_GORDONXII and Jordan Cameron with confidence.
