C.J. Spiller expects to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Spiller was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's 27-20 loss to the New York Jets at the Meadowlands. He returned to the game briefly in the third quarter, but exited for good with what the Bills announced as a knee injury.
"A little sore but shouldn't be nothing that will keep me out this week," Spiller said this morning at One Bills Drive. "Should be feeling better day-by-day, but just taking it slow. It's a little sore right now."
Spiller finished with his most miserable statistical performance as a pro: 10 carries for 9 yards and one reception for 1 yard. He fumbled twice, but the Jets didn't recover either of them.
He said a decision on his status against the Ravens won't be determined until later this week, but expressed optimism he'll be ready for the league's fourth-rated run defense.
"I've got to make sure that it's ready to go," Spiller said. "I have all the faith in my trainers, and we'll look at it day-to-day. As of right now, the plan is to see how it feels doing stuff, doing some treatment and doing everything necessary that I need to do to make sure that I'm ready.
"But come Wednesday or Thursday, ultimately the decision needs to be made -- more Thursday -- about if I'll be able to go. But I think I should be good."
