LeSean McCoy Injury Updates

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy sustained an ankle injury late in Sunday's win over the Raiders. It's not clear yet how significant the issue is. McCoy's last touch came inside the final 3 minutes, and K.C. ran the ball just 1 more time after that. Darwin Thompson took that final handoff and would likely be the backfield leader should McCoy and Damien Williams (knee) sit in Week 3. We'll be watching this whole situation closely. Thompson looks like 1 of the week's top fantasy football waiver targets, though, even if McCoy and Williams appear on track to play against Baltimore on Sunday.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that McCoy will have an MRI Monday, adding, "At first glance, it doesn't appear to be major."

Chiefs RB Damien Williams injured his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He's officially questionable to return. Williams' absence leaves LeSean McCoy atop the depth chart and Darwin Thompson as the #2 RB.

The Bills have signed C Mitch Morse. He'll get over $11 million per year, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo, making Morse the league's highest-paid C. The former Chief missed 14 games over the last 2 seasons with a foot injury and concussion but ranked 13th among 38 Cs in Pro Football Focus' 2019 grades.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bills have reached a 1-year, $2 million deal with RB Frank Gore. The 35-year-old (until May) lost the final 2 games of last season to a foot injury but posted 4.6 yards per cary before that -- his best mark since 2012 with the Niners. Gore joins a backfield that looks like it'll still be led by LeSean McCoy, but McCoy managed the 2nd-fewest carries of his career in 2018, tallying the fewest rushing yards (514) and yards per carry (3.2) of his career. It's an upside spot for Gore as a fantasy handcuff. Buffalo also still has veteran RB Chris Ivory around, though he sports a cuttable contract. We'll see what else the Bills do with their backfield this offseason.

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) 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.

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 hurt his right ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts. He needed the help of 2 trainers to get off the field. We'll pass along an update when we get one. RB Chris Ivory is next in line for Buffalo.

UPDATE: The Bills announced that McCoy left to be evaluated for a head injury.

UPDATE: McCoy is done for the day with a concussion.

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 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.

Bills C Eric Wood announced Friday that his season-ending physical revealed a neck injury that will end his career. Wood said doctors told him no surgery or further treatment could get him cleared to return. The 31-year-old arrived as a 1st-round pick in 2009, began at RG and then settled in at C in 2010. Wood has started there for Buffalo since, playing 97 of 113 possible games since the start of 2011 (including all 17 this past year). RB LeSean McCoy faces the biggest immediate impact on the fantasy football front. We'll see how the Bills address the sudden need.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Bills RB LeSean McCoy is expected to play in today’s playoff game against the Jaguars, despite an ankle injury that got him farted off the field last Sunday and cost him practice time all week. There’s obvious re-injury risk here, but McCoy also figures to get as many touches as he can handle in a weak Buffal offense.

11:12am EST 12/3/17

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee) is active for today's game against the Patriots. He was held out on Friday with what HC Sean McDermott called “knee soreness,” but McCoy wasn’t even listed on the final injury report. He’s safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy was held out of Friday's practice with what HC Sean McDermott deemed "knee soreness." McCoy isn't listed on the final injury report, though, so the team fully expects him to play against the Patriots. We'll check on his status on Sunday morning, but McCoy is fine to keep penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy isn't listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He was held out of Friday's practice with a sore groin, but HC Sean McDermott said that he's "very confident" that McCoy will be able to handle a full workload vs. Carolina. We'll keep an eye on his always-shaky durability, but McCoy is safe to keep in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. McCoy is a strong bet for 20+ touches in Sunday’s home game against the Jets.
