Week 15 NFL injury roundup: LeSean McCoy, Marcus Mariota leave games with knee injuries
Sunday December 20th, 2015

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy sustained a minor MCL sprain during the third quarter of his team’s game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday and is considered week to week for final two weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

McCoy will undergo further testing on Monday, Schefter reports.

McCoy sustained the injury after taking a hard hit directly to the knee from Redskins safety Dashon Goldson. After being examined by training staff, McCoy could be seen jogging and trying to cut on the sidelines. However, he was soon taken to the locker room where doctors determined we would not return. He was officially ruled out for the rest of the game.


​McCoy picked up 29 yards on 10 carries before exiting the game with the Bills trailing 28–3.

Backup running back Mike Gillislee made his presence known almost immediately after replacing McCoy, breaking off a 60-yard touchdown run with 6:48 remaining in the third quarter to make the score 28–10.
