ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes will start against Cleveland on Saturday, his first game since injuring his right Achilles' tendon 11 months ago.

Spikes was expected to play in a few series, the latest step in meeting his goal to be ready for Buffalo's regular-season opener at New England on Sept. 10.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection has been out since he got hurt against Atlanta in Week 3 of last season. He's looked sharp during training camp, and even increased his practice time this past week.
