Bills RB LeSean McCoy wasn't on the field when his team began its 1st possession of Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Although he entered on the 2nd play, McCoy wound up trailing undrafted rookie "starter" Keith Ford by 1 carry (7-6) and 1 target (4-3). The veteran finished with just 19 total yards. Afterward, he said a "situation" with HC Sean McDermott led to the discipline. "Coach, we had a situation, and he was totally right," McCoy said, per "It was a private situation. I'm a captain and I gotta be more accountable. Simple as that. He checked me, put me in place. That was it." The 30-year-old seems likely to be just 1 game away from at least his Buffalo career ending. McCoy remains under contract through 2019, but the final year includes a cuttable $2.625 million in dead money if he's released.

Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RB Keith Ford will back up RB LeSean McCoy but isn’t a fantasy option.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final injury report after practicing all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. He’ll return for this weekend’s game against the Patriots but is just a RB3 with Buffalo huge underdogs in that one. RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) is listed as questionable.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) said he'll play against the Patriots this weekend after practicing on Thursday for the 2nd straight day. He'll step back in as Buffalo's lead back but is just a RB3 with his team a 13-point road underdog.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Thursday and Friday before sitting out the Lions game, so we can't yet say he's on track to play against the Patriots this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Bills RB Marcus Murphy has been placed on IR with his dislocated elbow. RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) both seemed reasonably close to playing last week. If neither is ready for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Keith Ford would serve as Buffalo's lead back. He carried 14 times for 46 yards and caught his long target for 7 yards in yesterday's win over the Lions.

Bills RB Marcus Murphy suffered an arm in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Lions and is doubtful to return. He'd been operating as Buffalo's lead back, carrying 11 times for 35 yards. With LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory inactive, the Bills are down to Keith Ford.

Bills K Stephen Hauschka (hip) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He sits outside the top 20 Ks in fantasy points and isn’t a recommended Week 15 play.

Bills RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) are inactive for today’s game against the Lions. That leaves Marcus Murphy as Buffalo’s likely lead back. The 5’9, 195-pounder has averaged 5.2 yards per carry on 41 attempts this season and hauled in 11 of 19 targets but for just 26 yards. We’d expect him to get 12-15 touches today, putting him in play as a desperation RB3 or flex. Recent practice squad call-up Keith Ford will serve as the #2 RB.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) won't play against the Lions today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll see if RB Chris Ivory is able to play through his shoulder injury. If not, Marcus Murphy would be left as Buffalo's lead back. We'll get the official inactives at 11:30 am ET.

We have conflicting reports on the Bills backfield this morning. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Lions and that RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) is a game-time decision. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, says McCoy is a game-time call and Ivory is not expected to play. We'll see who wins this battle when Buffalo's inactives are announced around 11:30 am ET. If McCoy and Ivory are both out, the Bills would be down to RBs Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford.

Bills K Stephen Hauschka (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 15 after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. Look elsewhere for your K.

Bills RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. McCoy put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and might end up a game-time decision. Ivory was a full-go in practice all week and should be active. We’ll get Buffalo’s inactives by noon ET on Sunday.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. "Felt good," McCoy said afterward. "Out there with my teammates. Getting loose. Trying to get comfortable again." It gives McCoy a shot to play against the Lions this weekend, but HC Sean McDermott remained non-committal. We'll get another update on Shady's status tomorrow.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) was out there, putting him on track to play this weekend. Assuming McCoy is out, Ivory will be a good bet for 15 or so touches. But he'd be no better than a RB3 vs. a Lions run defense that's played well since adding DT Damon Harrison.

Bills OLB Matt Milano had surgery Monday on the broken left fibula he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He'll miss the rest of the season. According to the Buffalo News, HC Sean McDermott said the team is still figuring out how to replace Milano and that it could use a "committee approach." This is a spot to ignore for IDP owners.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy is considered "day-to-day" with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's loss to the Jets. We'll see if the 30-year-old tries to play through the issue for the 4-9 Bills. Buffalo also lost RB Chris Ivory to a shoulder injury yesterday, leaving Marcus Murphy as the only healthy RB on the roster.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more. Chris Ivory figures to operate as Buffalo's lead back as long as McCoy is out.

Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jets, as expected. He’s a strong starting option for IDP lineups.

11:11am EST 11/11/18

Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. That should mean a few extra touches for RB LeSean McCoy.
