LeSean McCoy hasn’t had to finish games lately because he’s been so good in the first halves.

But the Bills running back wasn’t able to finish practice today, and that’s reason for concern.

Via Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Bills coach Rex Ryan told reporters that McCoy wasn’t able to finish practice Wednesday because of “tightness” in his hamstring.

The Bills are awaiting further tests to determine the severity of the injury, but if he’s on the sidelines, it’s a major problem for them. McCoy is second in the league in rushing, with 587 yards on 104 carries (5.6 yards per carry).

He’s also helped them get off to quick starts. As noted by Carucci’s colleague Tim Graham, McCoy has been blistering in the first 30 minutes of games lately. During their four-game win streak, he has 38 carries for 343 yards (9.0 per carry) and four touchdowns before halftime.

    Manuel can run. Let’s get some use out of him before his contract expires.

    Good to know that he ‘didn’t finish practice with hamstring tightness.’ Only him?

    We hope he doesn’t play. will make things a lot easier. If he does good luck in not being injured in the game.

    Please, Football Gods, don’t let Shady have to miss any time.

    Let’s Go Buffalo!

    If McCoy is sidelined against Miami, then I have 100% faith in Gillislee getting the job done.

    Gillislee 2016- 17 carries for 117 yds at 6.8 y/a & 2 TD’s

    Gillislee 2015- 47 carries for 267 yds at 5.6 y/a & 3 TD’s

    He is a power back with a bit of speed… a great compliment to LeSean McCoy and will be backed by Jonathan Williams… a pure old school power back and Reggie Bush, who still has the speed and quickness needed to play the game.

    Besides, the Bills run blocking has been extremely dominant, especially behind Incognito & Glenn… and everyone knows Incognito was done wrong by the Dolphin organization, so he is going to be hitting a bit harder on Sunday.
    If the Bills have good depth at any position on the team it’s at running back.
