Doug Marrone on C.J. Spiller: We think he'll be out there

By Tim Graham

CLEVELAND -- The Buffalo Bills apparently expect C.J. Spiller to play tonight against the Cleveland Browns.

The team tweeted a quote from coach Doug Marrone apparently from an interview with NFL Network reporter Stacey Dales.

"I think we feel good, think he'll be out there," the Bills tweeted along with a photo of Marrone speaking to Dales.

The Bills peeled back a corner of the tarp at FirstEnergy Stadium so safety Jairus Byrd (feet) and cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) could test their injuries before the game.

As of this posting, there has been no indication from the team that either will or won't play.
