Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson said he will be ready to play Thursday night versus the Cleveland Browns in a nationally televised game.

"I'm definitely playing," tweeted Jackson, who sprained a knee in Sunday's win over Baltimore.

Coach Doug Marrone concurred: "I'm very comfortable with Fred."

Meanwhile, fellow running back C.J. Spiller took part in the walk-through portion of practice Tuesday and he expects to make a decision about his sprained ankle in warmups before the game Thursday.

"I didn't think I'd be able to run today, but I was able to," Spiller said. "I wasn't full speed but I was at least able to move around. Tomorrow will be a huge day. Thursday I'll get out there and test it out. If I can go, I'll go. If I can't, I can't."
