With the loss of Fred Jackson to a season-ending broken leg, the Bills announced Wednesday they have claimed Tashard Choice off waivers in an effort to provide new starting back C.J. Spiller some help.
Choice was a quality backup in Dallas from 2008=10, but the Cowboys released him earlier this year. He was picked up by the Redskins, but he missed his first two games in Washington with a bad hamstring. Then, after recording seven yards on six carries vs. Dallas on Sunday, Washington waived him Tuesday.
After losing two yards on a first and goal from the 2-yard line in the Dallas game, Choice said afterward he hoped he would receive another chance from the Redskins. That obviously didn’t happen.
But now, he’ll have an opportunity in Buffalo to help turn around a team that is in desperate need of some positive news.
