On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills held their second-to-last session of Organized Team Activities in the 2016 offseason, and one of their star players had to watch the majority of the practice from the sidelines.
Running back LeSean McCoy, who battled a hamstring injury in the early stages of the 2015 season, could only participate in individual drills on Wednesday during practice. Once the Bills went into team drills where the offense was against the defense, McCoy only watched from afar due to a similar concern.
"He just had a tight hamstring, so we’re just trying to be smart with him. He did do a little work, but we’re keeping him out of the team drills," head coach Rex Ryan said after the practice. "It’s not a serious injury. I think it was this week was the only time he’s missed anything."
McCoy notably injured his hamstring during training camp in 2015, and it went on to bother him through the first five weeks of the season. He had to leave the team's Week Three tilt against Miami early, and didn't play in the next two games for Buffalo.
It will be a situation to monitor as the Bills start their three-day mandatory minicamp next week.
