No practice for LeSean McCoy Wednesday

The Bills will end their long absence from the playoffs on Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville, but it remains uncertain that they will have their starting running back in the lineup.

LeSean McCoy hurt his ankle against the Dolphins last Sunday and coach Sean McDermott said earlier this week that the veteran has a chance of being well enough to play against the Jaguars. He’s not well enough to get on the practice field Wednesday, though.

McDermott said that McCoy will sit out the first on-field work of the week and termed the running back day-to-day when it came to his outlook for the rest of the week.

Five other Bills — linebacker Matt Milano, right tackle Jordan Mills, cornerback Shareece Wright, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and defensive tackle Kyle Williams — will also be on the sideline for the Bills on Wednesday.

  1. Shady has done so much this season to help get this team to where it is now it would be a shame for him not to be able to play Sunday. #BillsMafia

  2. I’m guessing he plays, even at 60-70% But man we need him at 80-90% He’s proven to come back from injuries relatively quickly. Fingers crossed

  3. Jags fan here wishing him the best. There will always be an asterisk for me if we win this game without a healthy McCoy. Ge well Shady!

  4. I hope he is back at “good enough to make a difference.” I am not a Bills fan, but I would love for them to win a playoff game. 17 years of suffering, and they don’t have the Indians or the Cavaliers to mitigate the pain.

  5. Jaguars are catching all the breaks this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Big Ben rolled his ankle on his way to buy a doughnut sometime next week.

  6. The Bills and Eagles both made out with the McCoy/Alonso trade… The Eagles ended up with their Franchise Quarterback after trading Byron Maxwell/Kiko Alonso/1st rd 13th pick to Miami for the 1st rd 8th pick which they used on Carson Wentz… The Bills got a fair priced superstar rb that they’ve had for 3 seasons and is still only 29 years old. They should easily get another 3-4 years of great production from him because he has been hit so little… there is only slight wear on him. His amazing running style has kept him relatively healthy for the amount of yards that are on him. 10,092 yards and that doesn’t include the 441 receptions for another 3,378 yards. In comparison Frank Gore who has 14 NFL seasons under his belt and has amassed 14,026 yards & 443 receptions for 3,672 yards looks like a old beat up chevy truck compared to McCoy’s 9 seasons as a Lamborghini. Buffalo will need that Lambo if they want to compete with the Jaguars… even a McCoy at 60% is better than a Tolbert/Murphy combination… The Jaguars will steamroll the Bills otherwise. Hopefully rest will give Shady a shot at competing in Sunday’s Playoff game… they need him!

    Yeah tell me about it. Jaguars are so lucky to catch all these breaks, but you can relate. It’s the same breaks the Patriots get every year by playing in AFC East.

    First off, patsfan4lifesbchamps is a #fakefan troll.
    That said, the AFC South over the last 10 years has been putrid, edpecially against the AFC East.

  9. “There is not one matchup in this game where Buffalo has an advantage over Jacksonville. Without McCoy, it’s even more one-sided.”

    Really? I know Tyrod is nothing special…but he’s still better than Bortles. If Bortles isn’t the worst non-injury forced starter in the league, he’s bottom 3.

  10. “Really? I know Tyrod is nothing special…but he’s still better than Bortles. If Bortles isn’t the worst non-injury forced starter in the league, he’s bottom 3.”

    Tyrod is matched up against the number one pass defense in the league, not Blake Bortles.

  11. No dog in this fight. But Bills fans don’t let Pats fans fool you by saying they are voting for the bills because it’s a feel good story. They’re voting for the bills because they want no part of the chiefs. Assuming the chiefs win of course.

    Bortles has thrown 7 of his 13 picks against pass defenses ranked lower than Buffalo, Tyrod Taylor has not thrown 7 interceptions. If Buffalo keeps it close, Bortles will assuredly give the game away. And I like the guy!

    Hmmm Bortles this season 21 Tds (plus a couple rushing TDs) to 13 picks and 60% completion percentage for a winning playoff team… not too bad and certainly not bottom 3
