Injury updates: LeSean McCoy has cracked rib cartilage

New, comments

The banged up Bills get some good news on Monday about McCoy and Taiwan Jones

The Buffalo Bills exited their game against the Los Angeles Chargers not only with a loss, but with several scary injuries. During his usual Monday chat with the press, head coach Sean McDermott gave updates on the status of the team.

  • LeSean McCoy is considered day to day with cracked rib cartilage. It’s possible McCoy will suit up in week three when the Bills face the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Special teams captain Taiwan Jones did not suffer a concussion after a brutal shot to the head from Uchenna Nwosu. Jones’ helmet came off before the hit. He was “bruised and cut up” per McDermott.
  • Cornerback Phillip Gaines left Sunday’s game with a dislocated elbow after only a handful of snaps. Gaines has not been ruled out for this week.
  • Defensive end Shaq Lawson is day to day as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Lawson did not play against the Chargers.
  • Slot corner Taron Johnson is also day to day with a shoulder injury sustained against the Ravens. Johnson was not active in Week 2.

With the sudden retirement of Vontae Davis, expect the Bills to add a cornerback on Tuesday (and maybe two). Ryan Lewis is on the practice squad and would make sense to fill a spot.
