LeSean McCoy has hamstring tear, could be out a month
Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has been battling a hamstring injury this season, and it could keep him out for a month.
McCoy has been ruled inactive for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, and Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that an MRI recently revealed he has a tear in his hamstring. That type of injury typically takes around a month to heal completely, and McCoy said earlier this week that he does not want to return to the field until he is 100 percent healthy.
“I’m not the bruising type to be running through everybody,” he told reporters, via the Bills official website. “My thing is making them miss and getting out of there. If you can’t do that, you can’t do (anything). One thing I just promised myself is I can’t go out there if I’m not 100 percent. Whatever it is, I’m rushing to get back, but I’m not playing until I’m 100 percent.”
Fortunately for the Bills, rookie running back Karlos Williams has looked fantastic in the early part of the season. He is averaging 7.8 yards per carry and has established himself as Buffalo’s goal line back with three touchdowns.
Before the season began, the Bills were discussing the possibility of signing this infamous veteran running back because of McCoy’s health concerns. Williams has filled a major need for the team.
