With C.J. Spiller's left ankle still sore, and Fred Jackson set to play with a brace on his injured left knee, the Buffalo Bills' third-string running back Tashard Choice is ready in reserve.
Choice is preparing for the possibility of getting additional playing time Thursday night, when the Bills (2-2) travel to face Cleveland (2-2). This wouldn't be the first time for Choice — and against the Browns, no less.
In Week 3 of last season, Choice stepped in for both and finished with 91 yards rushing in a 24-14 win at Cleveland.
In other injury updates Tuesday, cornerback Aaron Williams (bruised back) expects to play. And there's a chance starting safety Jairus Byrd (plantar fasciitis) could be ready after he was listed as practicing fully for the first time this season.
