LeSean McCoy, the Pro Bowl running back for the Buffalo Bills (4-9), managed to rush for only one yard on two carries before leaving Sunday’s game vs. the New York Jets with a hamstring injury. McCoy, who is currently in the midst of his worst season as a professional, is waiting to find out just how serious the injury is.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, McCoy will undergo an MRI later Monday “to determine the severity” of the injury.
#Bills RB LeSean McCoy, who left yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury, will have an MRI to determined the severity of it. The way it grabbed at him isn’t encouraging, but the tests will tell the story.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 10, 2018
In making 12 starts this year for the Bills, McCoy has rushed 145 times for 479 yards, an average of 3.3 yards per carry. McCoy has rushed for two touchdowns (both in a Week 10 win over the Jets), and also has 29 receptions for 210 yards.
Outside of rushing for two TDs and 113 yards in the Week 10 win over the Jets, McCoy has managed only 366 yards on 119 carries with zero TDs in the Bills other 11 games in 2018. Sunday was the second time McCoy finished with two carries for one yard in a game (a Week 7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts being the other), and he has been held below 50 rushing yards in eight of Buffalo’s games this year.
If McCoy’s season is finished, his total rushing yards and yards per attempt figures would be the lowest of his 10-year career.
