LeSean McCoy expected to be healthy for Bills vs. Colts, NFL Week 1

New, comments

It's still unclear how severe LeSean McCoy's hamstring injury really is, but at bare minimum, he'll be ready for the Bills' season opener against Indianapolis, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

We still lack complete clarity on the severity of the left hamstring injury that Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy suffered during practice on Tuesday evening, but if you were concerned about McCoy missing any regular season action, let ESPN's Adam Schefter alleviate some of that stress for you.

Rex Ryan told reporters last night that McCoy would have an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. Evidently, it won't keep him out more than 3-4 weeks. The Bills host the Indianapolis Colts in a Week 1 matchup at Ralph Wilson Stadium in a little less than four weeks. Whether or not we'll see McCoy again this preseason is another question entirely.

Coupled with the news that the Bills are hoping to have Fred Jackson, Boobie Dixon, and Bryce Brown back for next week's major preseason tune-up against Pittsburgh, plus the fact that rookie Karlos Williams is also expected back prior to the start of the regular season, the Bills' very-banged-up backfield should be in much better shape by September 13.
