Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is on track to play against the Packers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy has said all week that he'll play and got in 3 limited practices. There's some risk that the rib cartilage injury limits him today, but McCoy is ok to get into fantasy lineups as a lower-end RB2.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. That leaves Buffalo’s backfield to Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy. Neither is a recommended fantasy play.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) will "push" to play today, but "the likelihood is he’ll have to wait until next week," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He's in a lot of pain," Rapoport adds. We'll find out McCoy's official status by noon ET, but he should be on fantasy benches now. His absence would leave Buffalo's backfield to Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy. Neither is a recommended fantasy play.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings after a limited week of practice. It sounds like he sported a non-contact jersey all week. We’re expecting McCoy to play on Sunday, but he’ll be a high-risk, low-reward fantasy start.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he did anything this early in the week means he's planning on playing against the Vikings on Sunday. Banged up and in a brutal matchup, McCoy will be no more than a RB3 for Week 3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Bills RB LeSean McCoy "questionable" for Week 3 after suffering cracked rib cartilage in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. "McCoy should not miss more than one game, if that," Schefter adds. We'll track his practice participation this week. If McCoy is out, Buffalo would be down to RBs Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy. This whole backfield is best off avoided this week in a brutal matchup against the Vikings.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy suffered fractured ribs in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy will reportedly try to play through the issue against the Vikings in Week 3. So a matchup that already looked terrible now includes further downside risk for McCoy. Through 2 games, Marcus Murphy ranks 2nd among Bills RBs in rushing attempts (9, to McCoy's 16). Chris Ivory has carried 5 times for 10 yards and the team's lone rushing TD.

UPDATE: Tests on McCoy' ribs Monday morning revealed no fracture, according to Rapoport. So it sounds like he's just dealing with a bruise. It's an injury McCoy should be able to play through.
