LeSean McCoy hints he could return from hamstring injury Sunday

Friday October 16th, 2015

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy hinted on his Instagram account that he could return from the hamstring injury that has sidelined him since Week 3 this Sunday.

McCoy sustained the injury to 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.

Doctors diagnosed a Grade 2 pull on Friday, and predicted McCoy 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 count down finally !!!!!!! 2 5 on the way,” McCoy wrote on Instagram, referring to his uniform number.

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, but hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday.

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