Orchard Park, NY ( – Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller
is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against New Orleans as he continues to
battle an ankle injury.

Spiller hasn’t yet missed a game but has been slowed recently by the ankle
issue. He has started four of the team’s seven games this season and has run
for 362 yards with a touchdown on 90 carries while adding 14 catches for 36

Last week against Miami, he managed only 11 yards on six carries and had three
catches for minus-four yards in the 23-21 victory.

The Bills also listed linebacker Manny Lawson as doubtful because of a
hamstring injury. Lawson has 40 tackles in seven games this season.

Buffalo made a roster move on Friday, releasing cornerback Brandon Burton. It
will allow the club to add a player for Sunday’s game.
