Will LeSean McCoy play against the Jaguars? The latest news on his ankle injury.
The Bills could be without star running back LeSean McCoy in Sunday’s playoff game against the Jaguars.
McCoy sprained his ankle in Buffalo’s Week 17 win over the Dolphins and had to be taken off the field on a cart. X-rays were negative but he had on a walking boot in the locker room after the game. He’s listed as questionable for the game in Jacksonville.
There is a chance that McCoy plays on Sunday but he won’t be at 100%, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday. McCoy has been receiving constant treatment on the ankle and practiced on a limited basis Friday for the first time this week.
McCoy did briefly take the field for practice on Thursday but left after team stretches.
Losing McCoy would be a big blow to the Bills, who will be playing in their first playoff game in 17 years. McCoy was fourth in the NFL in rushing yards this season with 1,138 and second in carries with 287.
Mike Tolbert backed up McCoy this season and carried 66 times for 247 yards but journeyman Marcus Murphy is expected to be the primary ballcarrier on Sunday if McCoy can’t go.
