LeSean McCoy injury update: Bills RB day to day with strained hamstring, report says

first_imgLeSean McCoy’s availability is up in the air once again.The Bills running back underwent an MRI Monday that revealed a strained hamstring, and he is considered day to day, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported. McCoy was hurt in the team’s 27-23 loss to the Jets on Sunday. The veteran, who missed time with a concussion earlier this season, left the game in the first quarter and was seen walking with a slight limp on the sideline. He was later ruled out for the remainder of the game, finishing with two carries for 1 yard on nine offensive snaps.McCoy, 30, is averaging a career-low 3.3 yards per attempt this season. Despite logging just 145 carries for 479 yards in 12 games, he entered Sunday’s game as the Bills’ leading rusher, though he was passed Sunday by quarterback Josh Allen.The Bills (4-9) will likely be cautious with McCoy’s injury with only three games remaining. The team has backups Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy to carry the bulk of the workload in his absence.last_img read more
