LeSean McCoy missed last week with a rib injury he sustained in Week 2 against the Chargers. The Buffalo Bills won on Sunday against the Vikings, their first win of the season, without the All-Pro running back.


McCoy had cracked the cartilage surrounding his ribs. 


However, he's set on playing this weekend to help this offense continue to make strides as they look to improve their record to 2-2. 

​​“He’s made considerable progress. We’re just going to take it one day at a time right now,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott said. McCoy was limited in practice on Wednesday but actually participated in warmups last week against Minnesota. Obviously, he was a no-go, but it proves that he is in the right direction of recovery.

In the few games he has been active for this season, LeSean has done virtually nothing. 


He had eight touches in Week 1 and 13 touches in Week 2, prior to the injury. The weight has been carried by running backs Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy. 


But with McCoy ready to return this weekend, he'll want the ball in his hands early and often.
