Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy: ‘Not sure I'll be 100%’ in Week 1

Wednesday September 9th, 2015

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy said Wednesday he is not sure he'll be “100%” in Week 1 but will still play, according to multiple reports.

McCoy sustained a hamstring injury during training camp in August. McCoy did not return to practice until last Friday, when he took part in individual drills.

McCoy, 27, is entering his first season with the Bills. Buffalo acquired the running back in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles this off-season in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso. Last year, McCoy ran for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns.

Behind McCoy on the Bills’ depth chart at running back are Karlos Williams and Boobie Dixon, who are listed as probable for the season opener. Williams, a fifth-round pick, battled his own injuries during camp. Buffalo released veteran running back Fred Jackson in August.
