C.J. Spiller apologizes for gay slur
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills rookie running back C.J. Spiller apologized before practice Thursday for using a derogatory term toward gays that he posted on his Twitter account.
Spiller said he hasn't heard from the league regarding the issue, and he's apologized to coach Chan Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix.
The rookie said: "Me and Ricky are best friends and we always joke around on there, but I shouldn't have said what I said. If anybody knew how me and Ricky play around on Twitter, pretty much knows that we were just joking and didn't mean any harm. I apologize for the situation."
