LeSean McCoy rushed 17 times for 130 yards in the Bills' 38-24, Week 13 loss to the Raiders.
McCoy wasn't just a threat on the ground; he also led the Bills with seven catches for 61 yards on seven targets. With Robert Woods, Charles Clay, and Percy Harvin all missing this one, McCoy had to take on a bigger pass-game role behind a less-than-100-percent Sammy Watkins and Marquise Goodwin. McCoy's fantasy owners surely would have preferred he score at least one of the two touchdowns backup Mike Gillislee scored one and two yards out. McCoy was still able to get "his" and again opened the third quarter with a monster 54-yard run after coming out of halftime with a 75-yard touchdown run last week. McCoy will be an elite RB1 next week against the Steelers. Dec 4 - 7:34 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 19 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and caught 2-of-2 targets for 31 yards in the Bills' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

As Buffalo's offensive line was dominated by the Jaguars' defensive front in the first two quarters, McCoy was nursing a worrisome 8-5-1 rushing line at the half. On his first run of the second half, McCoy sprinted 75 yards to the house to turn an otherwise underwhelming day into a very big one. McCoy added a 25-yard checkdown reception in the fourth quarter. McCoy closes out the fantasy season with a favorable run-defense schedule at Oakland, versus Pittsburgh, versus Cleveland, and versus Miami through Week 16. McCoy was in no way limited by his previous hamstring or thumb ailments in Sunday's victory.

LeSean McCoy is active for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

As expected. McCoy is an elite RB1 play versus a weak Jags run defense.
Nov 27 - 11:37 AM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) will play Week 12 against the Jaguars.

There was never much doubt about his availability, and coach Rex Ryan said McCoy is "ready to get the majority of the reps." With Mike Gillislee (hamstring) out, he should see as much work as he can handle. McCoy is a solid RB1 play this week.
Nov 27 - 8:13 AM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said LeSean McCoy (thumb) is "ready to get the majority of the reps" at running back this week.

McCoy dislocated his thumb in Week 11 but practiced all week and shouldn't have any restrictions Sunday against Jacksonville. The Bills will have to ride him hard with backup Mike Gillislee nursing a hamstring injury. Shady can be penciled in as a solid RB1 this week.
Nov 25 - 2:13 PM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) is listed as questionable for Week 12 versus Jacksonville.

Despite the Q tag, McCoy is fully expected to play against the Jaguars. With Mike Gillislee (hamstring) ruled out, McCoy should be staring at a hefty workload as a home-favorite running back versus a bottom-half run defense.
Nov 25 - 1:15 PM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) is practicing Thursday.

McCoy is wearing a wrap over his surgically-repaired thumb, but he was able to catch passes in practice Thursday. There is almost no doubt he will play this week, and it does not look like he will be very limited if at all by the injury. He is a high-end RB1 play with the Bills big home favorites against the Jaguars.
Nov 24 - 12:02 PM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

McCoy underwent surgery on his dislocated thumb immediately after the Week 11 win over the Bengals, but he's on track to play against the Jaguars. With no Robert Woods (knee) and possibly a limited Sammy Watkins (foot), McCoy will again be leaned on heavily Sunday. McCoy is a strong RB1.
Nov 23 - 12:09 PM

Speaking Monday, Bills coach Rex Ryan was noncommittal on LeSean McCoy's (thumb surgery) availability for Week 12.

Rex did later say he is "encouraged" about McCoy's chances of playing, but conceded the Bills will have to monitor McCoy's recovery throughout the week. It would not be surprising if McCoy did very little in practice this week. He underwent surgery to repair a dislocated thumb on Sunday night.
Nov 21 - 4:53 PM

Pro Football Talk reports LeSean McCoy had surgery on his dislocated thumb Monday, but he is expected to play Week 12.

McCoy reportedly could have reentered the game against the Bengals, but the training staff could not relocate his thumb on the sideline or in the locker room. He will almost certainly sit out some practice time this week, but McCoy should be tentatively expected to play against the Jaguars. Mike Gillislee will get the nod if McCoy cannot go, and he likely will see a larger share of the snaps either way, especially if McCoy's ability to catch the ball is compromised.
Nov 21 - 9:33 AM

LeSean McCoy needs surgery to repair his dislocated thumb.

The operation will presumably take place on Monday. The Bills are still saying they expect McCoy to play in Week 12 against Jacksonville, and the only reason McCoy was unable to return to Sunday's win was because they couldn't pop the thumb back in on the sideline or in the locker room. This will still be a situation to monitor all week. Mike Gillislee is McCoy's backup.
Nov 20 - 8:29 PM

Profootballtalk reports LeSean McCoy (dislocated thumb) is expected to play in Week 12.

It's what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport guessed at earlier on Sunday. The Bills are always extremely optimistic with injuries, especially to their star running back, but it's obviously a good sign seven days out. McCoy's status should be updated at least once in the next 24 hours, and then again on Wednesday.
Nov 20 - 4:48 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports LeSean McCoy has a dislocated thumb.

Per RapSheet, "Bills sources don't seem concerned" with the injury, which doesn't help anyone trying to figure out why McCoy didn't return to Sunday's game. Rapoport says McCoy was simply unable to pop the thumb back into the socket. This sounds like it may only end up costing McCoy the final two quarters of Week 11, but it's certainly a frustrating situation for fantasy owners.
Nov 20 - 3:29 PM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) is done for the day in Week 11 against the Bengals.

It must be a severe thumb injury to cost McCoy the final two quarters. McCoy will finish with 45 total yards and a touchdown on seven touches. The Bills have turned to Mike Gillislee as their main back against Cincinnati.
Nov 20 - 3:10 PM

LeSean McCoy (thumb) remained sidelined for the start of the second half of Sunday's Week 11 game at Cincinnati.

Mike Gillislee is working as the Bills primary back, just as he did to end the first half. Although a "thumb" injury doesn't sound severe at first glance, it's a bad sign that McCoy was unable to return to begin the third quarter.
