Buffalo Bills say LeSean McCoy "has a chance" to play vs. Jaguars

(WKBW) - Amidst all the celebrations of finally putting an end to the 17-year playoff drought on Sunday, there was one dark cloud still hovering over the Buffalo Bills: the injury status of star running back LeSean McCoy.

McCoy injured his ankle early in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins -- and the moment it happen his teammates began signaling to the sidelines for someone to come check on him. After a few moments, McCoy had to be carted off the field and taken for X-rays.

It certainly looked bleak at the time, but Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that they received the "good news" that the X-rays were, in fact, negative. McDermott added that McCoy "has a chance" to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in the AFC Wild Card round.

After the game, McCoy was spotted upright, but with his right ankle in a walking boot.

 

 

The Bills left it open-ended, saying "we'll see," if he's actually able to play on Sunday. Outside of McCoy, the team has only Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy as their main runners on the roster.
