LeSean McCoy injury: right knee hit hard in Bills-Redskins game

New, comments

LeSean McCoy is done with Week 15 after 11 touches, as he has been ruled out after taking a hard hit on his right knee. He did, however, jog off the field.

In the third quarter of the Buffalo Bills' Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, running back LeSean McCoy took a hard hit on his right knee, and was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game.

After taking the hit and going to the ground, McCoy flipped the ball high into the air and then threw his helmet in frustration before grabbing his knee. He stayed down on the field for the duration of a television timeout, but was spotted jogging off the field.

McCoy then spent a few minutes on the training table on the sidelines before retiring to the locker room. Initially labeled as questionable to return to the game, the Bills quickly downgraded him to out. He finished the game with 29 rushing yards on 10 carries. His injury came on a screen pass reception; that was his lone catch for eight yards.

Mike Gillislee and the dinged-up Karlos Williams will handle the Bills' rushing load for the remainder of Week 15 - and perhaps beyond, depending on the severity of McCoy's injury.
