McCoy leaves practice early with hamstring tightness

October 19, 2016 - 12:40 pm

There may be some concerning news coming from the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday surrounding running back, LeSean McCoy.

Bills head coach Rex Ryan briefly addressed the media following practice, and said that McCoy could not finish practice after experiencing some tightness in his hamstring.

Ryan said that the team will evaluate how McCoy progresses through the rest of the week before making any decisions for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. This injury also does not relate to the injury he suffered during this past Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

McCoy, 28, has been a huge reason for Buffalo's success in the run game this season. McCoy has already rushed for 587 yards on 104 carries and six touchdowns this year and has accounted for 58.8-percent of the team's total yards on the ground.

Last season, McCoy had a hamstring injury, which hampered the early part of his 2015 season. McCoy did miss a couple of games with his hamstring injury, and was limited to just 895 rushing yards in 12 games. McCoy also missed the final two games of the 2015 season with a minor knee injury.

If McCoy is not good to go this Sunday, Mike Gillislee would likely get the start at running back.
