LeSean McCoy is expected to be back for Week One

AP

On Tuesday, Bills running back LeSean McCoy injured a hamstring. On Wednesday, we have the verdict on his expected absence following an MRI exam of the muscle.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, McCoy will be ready for the regular-season opener.

This means he won’t be ready for any of the remaining preseason games, and it’s unclear when he’ll be able to practice.

The key in the interim will be to rest the hamstring and to resist returning too quickly. Otherwise, the problem could be aggravated and re-aggravated and it could linger all year.

  1. McCoy is a veteran so really how much does he need to practice? He seems to know Roman’s scheme pretty well already so he should be ready to play Week 1 without to many problems.

  2. For that person giving me a hard time yesterday, told you so. He will be ready week one, and also Karlos Williams is not out weeks, it’s like two weeks, he will be back for regular season too. All the Bills RB’s will be back for the start of week one. Go Bills!!

  3. It’s as if he lost a step last year and the Eagles were in the bottom third of rushing or something.

    Downside: I guess Buffalo isn’t big on sports science.

    Upside: LeSean will have time to plan additional parties.

    Buffalo has always been on the forefront of sports medicine, and has some of the finest facilities in the country. Ask Kevin Everett how he feels about sports medicine in Buffalo. Thanks to their care he can actually feel after an on-field spinal injury!!

    Because no other team in the league has ever had a player strain a hamstring…

    Hamstring injuries are the most common injury in sports and have been shown to occur 176 times per NFL season (5-6 per team).

  6. When a team says that this early on it means they are rushing the player back to play and putting pressure on them to return. It’s stupid but typical for most NFL teams. With a hammy if it isn’t fully healed you will pop it again and there is a chance you will have issues all season.

    ……………………
    You sure the Eagles (as in whole team) spot in the bottom third in rushing had anything to do with McCoy? Because, last I checked, McCoy was 3rd in the entire NFL in rushing last year. Not even 50 yards behind Leveon Bell.

    Facts.

  8. hope he’s worth 60 Mil.

    Rex overspent all the owners money when he took over the Jets also.

    they were decent for two years and then went into cap hell.

    enjoy!

    Look up the contract. He takes minimal hits to the cap up front despite getting paid, and huge hits to the cap later on where they’re free to release him & pay him, but without the cap hit.

    The contract was structured very well.

    If saying that makes you feel better then do what you have to do. But the reality is that he’s on a new team, new coach, new scheme and a ton of new players. As a RB you need to build chemistry with your QB and especially Offensive line, that is done through reps and pre season games. While I don’t think it’s time to panic by any stretch it definitely has ill effects with him not being there. It’s not a good thing at all really.

  11. You guys kill me , philly fans act like he’s a injury prone guy . If anything hes a reliable vet , not many vet running backs take preseason carries , see Lynch , see Peterson who missed all of last year. Also why isn’t anyone in philly wondering why the new and improved Mccoy isn’t practicing/playing hasnt taken reps first it was no one knows why he’s out then a illness, then concern for his carries last season. Yeah ok sure chip always tells the truth

  12. “Per a source with knowledge of the situation, McCoy will be ready for the regular-season opener.”

    What else are the Bills going to say? He doesn’t need pre-season anyway he’s a veteran player. He’ll be fine.
