Bills RB McCoy leaves practice with hamstring injury

Because Bills.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

LeSean McCoy is in the middle of an MVP-caliber season for the Bills, who have ridden his legs to a four-game winning streak. It goes without saying that losing McCoy would be devastating for the Bills and their above-average playoff hopes.

As WROC-TV’s Thad Brown pointed out, Shady was limited for most of the early part of last season with a hamstring injury. While he was still a very productive player for most of the season, the Bills will need him playing at the level he’s been playing at if they hope to win tough games against new England and at Seattle in the coming weeks.

There doesn’t seem to be a huge amount of concern coming from the Bills around the injury. In his post-practice presser, when asked if McCoy may miss Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, Rex Ryan said that “I’m not going to look into it, but we’ll see how he comes back.” Not a lot of gloom-and-doom, but that’ll change if the hamstring doesn’t improve.

Of course, Shady seems like a medical marvel at times. Rex mentioned that the injury wasn’t related to the one he suffered near the end of the first half in the win over the 49ers, the one that I expected would keep him out for at least a month before he was jogging on the sideline thirty seconds later.

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on this as the week moves along.
