LeSean McCoy said all week he’d be playing against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend. Even after he hurt his hand during a blocking drill in practice and was listed as questionable, the Buffalo Bills running back never wavered, saying on NFL Network that he was definitely playing.
#Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) debuts, but won’t start. #Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hand) is playing & #Bears RB Ka’Deem Carey (hammy) is, too— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 9, 2016
Fantasy owners should rest easy. Shady has 224 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns over his last two weeks since Anthony Lynn has taken over playcalling duties from fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Buffalo didn’t sign change-of-pace bruiser Karlos Williams and Reggie Bush hasn’t seen a snap since Week 2. McCoy is still a must-start and will get plenty of carries, even against a stingy Rams front four.
The news wasn’t so good for Marcell Dareus, who is not expected to play with a hamstring injury he suffered in practice. The full list of inactives will be released around 3 p.m. Eastern.
