The offense for the Buffalo Bills traditionally revolves around LeSean McCoy, and the team is likely going to be without the star running back against the Minnesota Vikings. Early reports came out on Sunday morning from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, making McCoy an unlikely gametime option.
“McCoy (ribs) will push to be on the field today, but sources say the likelihood is he’ll have to wait until next week. He’s in a lot of pain,” said Rapoport.
McCoy’s status has been questionable all week long, after suffering a cartilage injury in last weekend’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Bills fans are well aware of the struggles the offense has experienced throughout two weeks, and things are unlikely to improve without McCoy in the lineup. Should Mccoy be unable to play, the Bills will likely rely on a combination of Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy to fill his shoes.
Through two games this season, McCoy only has 16 rushing attempts for a total of 61 yards, adding 5 receptions for 28 yards. Check back with Buffalo Rumblings for updates on McCoy’s official status leading up to week 3.
