Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy went down with a head injury on just the second play of the game last week against the Indianapolis Colts. McCoy landed awkwardly on his head as he took a hit going out of bounds and went into concussion protocol shortly after that.
McCoy is being listed as questionable after a full week of practice being a limited participant. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that according to his source, McCoy is expected to play on Monday night against the New England Patriots.

Luckily for the Bills and McCoy, they have an extra day to get out of protocol. Rather than McCoy basically being a game time decision, they can know that he will be available on Monday.
If McCoy can’t go or is limited, Buffalo will once again rely on Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy to carry the load. Fellow running back Taiwan Jones has been ruled out with a neck injury.
