LeSean McCoy reportedly considered day-to-day with hamstring injury
LeSean McCoy has dealt with hamstring injuries at various points throughout his career, and the Buffalo Bills running back suffered another during Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets.
McCoy underwent an MRI on Monday, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that he has been diagnosed with a strain. He is considered day-to-day.

While that isn’t the worst news, any hamstring issue for McCoy is a concern given the severity of the ones he has dealt with in the past. He’s also 30 and is having the worst season of his career, so the Bills might end up taking that into consideration.
McCoy is set to count roughly $9 million against the salary cap in 2019, but the Bills insist they are not looking to part ways with him. However, he is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry this season and clearly on the downside of his career. If McCoy can’t stay healthy, it would not be a surprise if the team has a change of heart this spring.
