LeSean McCoy Injury Updates

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.

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.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Jets. It's a tough break for those who used him in fantasy lineups -- he finished with just 16 scoreless yards -- but the injury shouldn't impact his 2017 offseason. McCoy was as good as ever this year, averaging a career-best 5.5 yards per carry and scoring 14 total TDs. He turns 29 in July but has shown no signs of slowing down.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy injured his lower right leg in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets. Trainers appeared to be looking at his ankle on the sidelines before he was carted back to the locker room. We'll update McCoy's status when we learn more.

Update: McCoy has an ankle injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Update: McCoy's status has been updated to "possible return."

Bills HC Rex Ryan said Friday that RB LeSean McCoy looked "full go" in practice Friday and said he believes McCoy is "close" to being ready for Monday night's game in Seattle. This seems to be trending toward McCoy being active for the game. He'll be risky until we see a full game back from his hamstring injury. Obviously, the current RB situation for many owners -- including this week's 6-team bye -- means you might have to go ahead and start McCoy without that assurance. We'll watch for his game status later today and keep an eye out for any further updates throughout the weekend. If you're waiting on McCoy and don't have Mike Gillislee as insurance, then Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could be an available fill-in.

The Bills "hope" RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is back for next Monday night's game against the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Shady aggravated his hamstring injury last Sunday and didn't practice at all this past week. Buffalo has a Week 10 bye, which might influence whether McCoy plays next week. We'll continue to keep an eye on him. Mike Gillislee will serve as the Bills' lead back vs. New England today.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) won't practice on Wednesday. "We'll see how he progresses through the week," HC Rex Ryan said. The Bills foolishly pushed McCoy through the hamstring injury last week. We'd guess that they won't make that mistake again, but we'll see. RB Mike Gillislee will serve as Buffalo's lead back vs. New England on Sunday if McCoy is held out.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus believes his client, Bills RB LeSean McCoy, will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. We should always take agent reports with a giant grain of salt, but we figured this was worth passing along. "They haven't ruled him out," Rosenhaus said. "I think on the official injury report today I'd be surprised if he wasn't listed as questionable. And he'll probably be one of those guys that tests it out pregame." We'll have another update on McCoy after Buffalo's Friday practice.

Bills HC Rex Ryan didn't have an update on RB LeSean McCoy's hamstring injury on Thursday but did say he's "hopeful" his stud back will be able to play against Miami this weekend. "We'll see how he progresses the next couple days," said Ryan. "Hopefully we get him back." OC Anthony Lynn provided a more illuminating quote: "I don't want him playing 85 percent, getting reinjured and having it linger through the season." McCoy dealt with lingering hamstring trouble last year, which might influence Buffalo's decision on whether he plays this weekend. We'll have another update tomorrow.
