Report: LeSean McCoy will be true game-time decision with ankle injury
The Buffalo Bills are preparing for their first postseason game since 1999, but they are going to be facing a major obstacle if their best player is unable to play.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that LeSean McCoy will be a true game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While McCoy was fortunate that he only suffered an ankle sprain in Week 17, Schefter was told it will be a “close call” as to whether he plays.
Bills’ RB LeSean McCoy, nursing a sprained ankle, is expected to be a “game-time decision” and a “close call” for Sunday’s playoff game against Jacksonville, according to a source.

McCoy is easily Buffalo’s most important offensive player. He rushed for 1,138 yards this season and added another 448 receiving, scoring eight total touchdowns. Without him, it would be up to Tyrod Taylor to make more plays than he is accustomed to making.
Even if McCoy does play on Sunday, all indications have been that he won’t be at full strength. Going against Jacksonville’s elite defense would be the biggest challenge the Bills have faced all if McCoy plays. Without him, they may not stand a chance.
