Chan Gailey: C.J. Spiller's collarbone not broken


By Jay Skurski

CLEVELAND -- Bills running back C.J. Spiller will be out next week, coach Chan Gailey said after today's 24-14 win over the Cleveland Browns, but looks to have avoided a more serious injury to his left shoulder.

"I don't believe it's long, long term," Gailey said. "If he misses a week, that's long for me. I think he's going to be out for sure this week, and then we'll see where he goes from there."

Gailey started off his press conference by saying Spiller will have more tests conducted Monday.

"He's out for a week or two, but I don't know how extensive it is," the coach said.

Gailey was asked whether Spiller had suffered a borken collarbone, and responded simply, "No."

Spiller was not seen in the locker room following the game.
