Life Comes Next: Buffalo Bills expect LeSean McCoy to return, Tyrod Taylor questionable Sunday
Friday October 16th, 2015

The Buffalo Bills listed running back LeSean McCoy as probable to play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the team announced Friday. McCoy also took to Instagram early Friday, hinting at a possible return.

The running back has missed the Bills’ past two games due to a hamstring injury. McCoy injured his left hamstring during practice on Aug. 18. He admitted he rushed back from the injury by playing in the Bills’ Week 1 contest with the Colts on Sept. 13, and then re-aggravated the strain during practice on Sept. 24 and has not played since a Sept. 27 game against the Dolphins.

Doctors diagnosed McCoy with a Grade 2 pull on Oct. 9, and predicted he would be out for three to four weeks. But just one week after that diagnosis, McCoy could be headed back to the field to play the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6.

The Bills have been hit hard with injuries through the first five weeks. Running back Cierre Wood was placed on injured reserve Monday, and rookie running back Karlos Williams has been sidelined with a concussion since Week 4. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor has a sprained knee and is listed as questionable for Sunday.

McCoy has rushed for 146 yards and has not scored across three games in limited action this season.
