LeSean McCoy rushed 19 times for 70 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 31 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 12 loss to the Chiefs.
McCoy has now totaled at least 100 yards in five-straight games as the centerpiece of the offense. McCoy's longest run went for 12 yards, as the Chiefs played the run pretty well much of the afternoon. They didn't play the pass well at all, however, and McCoy turned a late dump-off play into a 10-yard touchdown catch. He'll remain a locked-in RB1 next week against the Texans. Nov 29 - 5:12 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 82 yards and one touchdown and caught 6-of-10 targets for 41 yards in the Bills' Week 11 loss to the Patriots on Monday night.

Easily the best offensive player on the field for both teams, McCoy was one of the lone bright spots in a sloppy Monday night game to forget. After a slow start to his Bills career, McCoy has now eclipsed 100 total yards in four-straight games. His 10 targets led the team on a night Nos. 1 and 2 options Sammy Watkins and Charles Clay combined for nine total targets. McCoy's touchdown run was a thing of beauty. The Bills lined up both McCoy and Karlos Williams flanked to the sides of Tyrod Taylor in shotgun, RG Kraig Urbik pulled to the right, and Williams acted as the lead blocker, paving the way to the end zone where McCoy stretched out and dove for the pylon to score from 27 yards out. He'll be an RB1 next week against his former coach, Andy Reid, and the Chiefs.

LeSean McCoy rushed 19 times for 112 yards in Buffalo's Week 10 win over the Jets, adding five receptions for 47 additional yards.

McCoy did everything short of finding the end zone. Shady was dropping nasty, dime-like cuts on the Jets' elite run defense, showing the elusiveness that long ago established him as one of the game's top backs. McCoy has now looked dynamic in back-to-back games, and in five days, no less. McCoy at one point appeared to tweak his shoulder, but didn't miss any time, and was no worse for the wear. Playing his best football of the season as the Bills gear up for a Wild Card run, Shady will be an RB1 for next week's showdown with the Patriots.

LeSean McCoy (shoulder) is active for Buffalo's Week 10 game against the Jets.

As is Sammy Watkins (ankle). Although coach Rex Ryan has claimed McCoy is "100 percent," he's little more than a low-end RB2 on a short week on the road against an elite defense. Elsewhere on the Bills, E.J. Manuel is a healthy scratch, leaving Josh Johnson as Tyrod Taylor's backup. Also inactive for the Bills are LB Randell Johnson, OL Gabe Ikard, DT Kyle Williams, CB Mario Butler, OT Cyrus Kouandjio and DT Stefan Charles.
Nov 12 - 7:02 PM

LeSean McCoy (shoulder) is probable for Thursday night's Week 10 game against the Jets.

As expected. McCoy strained his shoulder over the weekend against the Dolphins, but it was minor. He'll continue to start and lead the Buffalo backfield in carries, but Karlos Williams will siphon some of the work and get some series to himself. Sammy Watkins (ankle) is also listed as probable.
Nov 11 - 1:50 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan now says he expects LeSean McCoy (shoulder) to be 100 percent for Thursday's game against the Jets.

Ryan first professed total ignorance of Shady's status before then saying he expected him to play, but possibly in a limited role. Now McCoy is apparently 100 percent. His "limited" practice on Tuesday suggests otherwise. It's clear McCoy will be active against the Jets, but he could cede a ton of touches to Karlos Williams. He can't be trusted as more than an RB2 against a stingy defense.
Nov 10 - 2:13 PM

LeSean McCoy (shoulder) was "limited" in Tuesday's practice.

As was Sammy Watkins (ankle). Coach Rex Ryan has said he expects McCoy to be active against the Jets on Thursday, but expressed uncertainty about his role. At less than 100 percent on a short week against an elite defense, McCoy won't be more than a boom-or-bust RB2 unless something drastically changes.
Nov 10 - 1:23 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said he believes LeSean McCoy (shoulder) will play Thursday.

"How significant his role will be? I’m not real sure right now," Ryan continued. McCoy is expected to be limited in practice Tuesday, which should put him on track to play Thursday. In a tough matchup at less than 100 percent, McCoy will be more of an RB2 against the Jets.
Nov 10 - 11:02 AM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports LeSean McCoy is dealing with a shoulder strain.

Breer also reported McCoy did not need an MRI, and McCoy is optimistic he will be able to play Thursday. Coach Rex Ryan said the team will have to "see how the week goes" before determining his status. The Bills have their only real practice of the week Tuesday. If McCoy is not able to participate, his chances of playing Thursday will take a hit.
Nov 10 - 9:54 AM

The Bills listed LeSean McCoy (shoulder) as a non-participant in Monday's walkthrough.

McCoy is trying to ready himself ahead of Thursday night's game against the Jets. McCoy has seemingly been very confident he'll play, but the medical staff will likely make the call. Karlos Williams would be the next man up.
Nov 9 - 4:47 PM

LeSean McCoy (shoulder) was present for Monday's walk-through practice.

It's a positive sign, but as long as you can walk, you can take part in a walk-through. The Bills consider Shady day to day ahead of Thursday's game against the Jets.
Nov 9 - 3:32 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan considers LeSean McCoy (shoulder) day to day.

Ryan says he's taking a "wait-and-see" approach, and claims he doesn't know if Shady underwent an MRI. He almost certainly did, the results of which will determine whether he plays against Gang Green. At less than 100 percent on a short week against an elite defense, McCoy will be an RB2 if he suits up for Thursday Night Football.
Nov 9 - 2:49 PM

LeSean McCoy is expected to require an MRI on his injured shoulder.

The MRI will likely take place late Sunday or early Monday. The Bills play the Jets on Thursday night, giving McCoy limited time to get prepared if he indeed suffered a significant injury. The injury did not appear significant, however, as McCoy insisted he could've reentered Sunday's 33-17 win over the Dolphins had he been needed. Instead, Karlos Williams closed out the game.
Nov 8 - 6:36 PM

LeSean McCoy told reporters after Sunday's win over the Dolphins that he'll be "fine" for Thursday Night Football against the Jets.

McCoy said he plans to get the shoulder "treated up" ahead of Thursday night's game, and that he could have reentered Sunday's victory had the Bills signed off on it. The fact that McCoy held a post-game press conference and wasn't wearing a brace or sling on the shoulder indeed bodes well for his chances of facing the Jets. If the Bills want to be especially cautious on the short week, however, they could opt to let Karlos Williams carry the bulk of the load. Williams exploded for 9-110-2 in his Week 9 return from a multi-week concussion.
Nov 8 - 4:40 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said after Sunday's win over the Dolphins that he's "not sure" of the severity of LeSean McCoy's shoulder injury.

McCoy appeared to suffer two shoulder injuries in Sunday's victory. The second was to his right shoulder and knocked him out of the game in the second half, with Karlos Williams taking over. Promisingly, Ryan did say McCoy "wanted" to reenter, but the Bills held him out to protect Shady from himself. Consider McCoy questionable to play against the Jets in Week 10.
