Report: LeSean McCoy unlikely to play against Patriots


The New England Patriots could be catching a major break in Buffalo on Sunday, as running back LeSean McCoy appears unlikely to play in the game.

McCoy, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury, is reportedly considered 50/50 to suit up. However, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports expects him to sit.

McCoy tweaked his hamstring in practice last week, but it felt good enough that he was able to play against the Miami Dolphins. He ended up leaving that game after aggravating the injury.

Given his history of hamstring issues, the Bills will almost certainly need to give McCoy at least a week off so he can avoid further setbacks. The last time Buffalo faced the Patriots, McCoy racked up more than 100 yards from scrimmage and scored a touchdown in his team’s 16-0 victory. He currently ranks fourth in the NFL with 598 rushing yards.

Even if McCoy does wind up playing, don’t expect Rex Ryan to make any more unrealistic comments about the Pro Bowler’s health.
