We knew the Buffalo Bills were interested in featuring running back C.J. Spiller this season, but we had no idea how many carries Spiller would get.

Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett told the Buffalo News that Spiller will get the ball, and get the it as many times as possible -- “until he throws up".

“It’s real simple,” Hackett said. “We’re going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he’s either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let’s just put it that way.”

Spiller, who only had 270 total touches last season, can expect to see that total double, according to Hackett.

“It doesn’t matter,” Hackett said of giving away a secret. “You can say that because any team that has ever watched him should, I mean, . . . You’ve got to stop C.J.

“The great thing is now we have some awesome weapons on the outside that if you do want to stop that guy, I mean, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going to be looking to not make him a focal point. It’s that even though he is a very good player, there are some ways that they can stop him. I mean, they can put everybody down in the box. They can attack you and do all kinds of stuff. So you’re going to have to be able to attack.

“I think it’s really exciting to see what’s going on, on the outside there, and the happiest guy of them all is C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.”

Spiller had his breakout season with the Bills last season, having 1,244 rushing yards and six touchdowns. The 26-year-old out of Clemson enters his fourth NFL season with high expectations.
