Jason La Canfora reports that Bills RB C.J. Spiller will under go surgery on his broken collarbone Monday and it’s possible that the Bills will place him on season-ending injured reserve.

After the game, HC Doug Marrone said that Spiller will be out an “indefinite” amount of time and Bryce Brown is likely to see an increased workload next week.

Former team doctor David Chao mentions that clavicle surgery does not guarantee that Spiller’s season is over as the operation would allow for a a faster return.

Both Jason La Canfora and Adam Schefter are reporting that Bills RB C.J. Spiller sustained a broken collarbone during Sunday’s game against the Vikings.

Spiller was carted off the field with a towel over his head and was reportedly sobbing, so it was clear that this was a major injury.

To make matter worse for the Bills, they also lost Fred Jackson to a leg injury. Bryce Brown isn’t active for Week 7’s game, despite the fact that Buffalo traded for him back in April.

Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that the Bills could field offers for Spiller, but this injury will obviously keep him in Buffalo for the remainder of the season.

Spiller, 27, is set to make $1,748,750 for the 2014 season and should be a sought after player if he ends up reaching the open market next year.

Over the course of six games, Spiller has ran for 234 yards on 68 carries (3.4 YPC) while contributing 13 receptions for 106 yards receiving and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus rates Spiller as the No. 44 running back out of 56 qualifying players.
