LeSean McCoy Injury Updates

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (rib) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s game against the Bears — his 1st action since Week 11. Williams averaged 9.9 carries and 3.3 targets over his first 8 games of the season. That feels like a fair projection for Week 16, making him a RB3 with some upside in this explosive offense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chiefs RB Damien Williams is expected to be inactive for today's game against the Broncos. He's officially questionable after missing Friday's practice, following 2 days of limited workouts with his rib injury. Williams' expected absence leaves touches available for LeSean McCoy, Spencer Ware and Darwin Thompson. McCoy should be the 1st Chiefs RB into fantasy football lineups. Just don't expect him to dominate work. McCoy hasn't exceeded 12 carries or 14 touches in a game this year.

The Chiefs have placed RB Darrel Williams on IR with his hamstring injury. LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware are Kansas City's healthy RBs right now. Damien Williams (rib) remained sidelined on Wednesday. McCoy is looking like the favorite to lead this backfield in touches against the Patriots this weekend, although he hasn't topped 14 touches in a game all season.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid conceded that there's a "good chance" RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) misses Sunday's game against the Patriots. There was no update from Reid on RB Damien Williams, who missed Week 13 with a rib injury. If both Williamses are out this weekend, Kansas City would be down to RBs LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson.

Despite RB Damien Williams (rib) being inactive and RB Darrel Williams exiting in the 3rd quarter with a hamstring injury, RB LeSean McCoy finished with just 5 carries and 3 targets in the win over the Raiders. “We’re not fooling anybody here, he’s not getting any younger, so it’s my responsibility to manage him as best I can, and I think I know him as well as anybody," HC Andy Reid said afterward. "So I’m going to do what I think is right on that." If both Williamses are out for Week 14's game against the Patriots, we're probably looking at something close to a 50/50 split between McCoy and RB Darwin Thompson. Thompson is worth grabbing off waiver wires this week.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RB LeSean McCoy did not sustain a concussion in the win over the Chargers. He left in the 4th quarter of that game to get checked but evidently passed the concussion test. So McCoy will be available for this weekend's game against the Raiders. RB Damien Williams' status remains uncertain after he suffered a rib injury in the Chargers game.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that this was a "predetermined rest week" for Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy. "Chiefs want him fresh down the stretch," Palmer adds. So it at least sounds like McCoy hasn't fallen completely out of Kansas City's plans. But considering he played just 6 snaps last week, he might need a Damien Williams injury to re-emerge as a viable fantasy option.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s seemingly healthier than he was at this time last week and is a RB2 for Week 4. Darrel Williams will serve as Kansas City’s #2 RB but is just a RB3 or flex flier.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He aggravated his ankle injury in the 4th quarter of last weekend's win over the Ravens, but the limited workout puts him on track to play against the Lions on Sunday. He'll come with risk in fantasy lineups, though, unless we hear that he's back to 100%. RB Damien Williams (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday and is looking unlikely to play this weekend.

Chiefs RBs Damien Williams (knee) and LeSean McCoy (ankle) were sidelined on Wednesday. Neither guy's injury is serious -- but they're both in danger of missing this weekend's showdown with the Ravens. That'd leave Kansas City's backfield to Darwin Thompson and Darrell Williams. Thompson would be an exciting fantasy play after an impressive preseason.

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.
