The Buffalo Bills have been plagued with injuries across the board this year, which is no different than any other year. This year seems to be different as they have been able to still be competitive within each game even with the injuries. What is different this year?
There are a number of things that could be the factor with this. It could be the coaching staff and their coaching and philosophy that they have instilled to the players and the organization. I think that there is some aspect of it being coaching but more of it has to do with the players and them stepping up to the challenge and taking on bigger roles when asked.
We saw this in last weeks game what the Bills were in a single back set and Frank Summers was getting the hand off and got 8-9 yards o the play. Before this Spiller had looked like he re-injured his ankle and Fred Jackson looked to injure his ankle as well. Choice and Summers stepped up during the game and were able to keep the running game moving along.
The bigger part if Jackson and Spiller came back into the game and were able to continue as well. Jackson and Spiller are the first running back duo to both hit the 350 yard mark at week 7 since Cribbs and Leaks in 1982.
