ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Ivory (shoulder) is a game-time decision for Week 15 against the Lions.

With LeSean McCoy (hamstring) reportedly unlikely to play, Ivory's status is suddenly important. Even if he goes, Ivory will only be a desperation fantasy option with an offensive line McCoy has struggled to produce behind. If Ivory sits, the Bills will turn to some combination of Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford with Isaiah McKenzie likely getting a handful of carries as well.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not expected to play Week 15 against the Lions.

It is a surprise after he got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. With Chris Ivory (shoulder) a game-time decision, the Bills may have to turn to Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford in the backfield. If that happens, it is likely gadget player Isaiah McKenzie sees a handful of carries as well. This is a situation to avoid in the semifinals.

Chris Ivory (shoulder) is questionable for Week 15 against the Lions.

As is LeSean McCoy (hamstring). Ivory got 12 carries in Week 14, but did so at the expense of McCoy's re-aggravated hamstring. If McCoy is active, Ivory has no fantasy value. He's a usage-based RB2 if McCoy is deemed unable to suit up.

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is questionable for Week 15 against the Lions.

Among the four players Buffalo listed as questionable, Chris Ivory (shoulder, questionable) was the only one to get in a full practice on Friday. McCoy was limited. The veteran back is still trending towards playing following two practices he was able to work in. He'll be a usage-based RB2 if active.
Dec 14 - 3:18 PM

Updating an earlier report, LeSean McCoy (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

"Felt good," McCoy said. "Out there with my teammates. Getting loose. Trying to get comfortable again." Coach Sean McDermott wasn't much more expansive on his back's health. As of Thursday afternoon, McCoy appears genuinely 50-50 to suit up against the Lions. Even another "limited" session on Friday would have him on track to play.
Dec 13 - 2:26 PM

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) had his helmet at the start of practice Thursday.

That usually indicates a player is practicing, although we will not know for sure until the practice report is released this afternoon. Any participation would be a good sign for his availability this week. Even if he plays, McCoy will be no more than a volume-hope RB3.
Dec 13 - 12:43 PM

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

McCoy pulled his hamstring early in the first quarter of the Week 14 loss to the Jets and may simply just be shut down for the final three weeks. Chris Ivory led the running backs with 12 carries last week but would be a last-ditch RB3 play this week against the Lions in a game with a 36-point total.

Bills placed CB Taron Johnson on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

The No. 121 overall pick of April's draft was injured making his second start in Week 13. Johnson was serving as the Bills' primary slot corner before going down. Although far from elite, he was playing promising football and could maintain nickel duties for 2019.
Dec 11 - 5:22 PM

Bills WLB Matt Milano is done for the season with a fractured fibula.

Milano had a terrific 2018 season in both pass coverage and run defense, emerging as a building block alongside first-round MLB Tremaine Edmunds. The good news is Milano's broken bone will heal smoothly. Coach Sean McDermott indicated Monday that Milano will likely be ready for the start of offseason workouts.
Dec 10 - 4:28 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is day to day.

McCoy's MRI apparently brought back good news. We would still consider him highly questionable for Week 15 against the Lions. Chris Ivory is the next man up. A "limited" Wednesday practice would have McCoy on pace to play.
Dec 10 - 1:37 PM

Charles Clay caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in Week 14 against the Jets.

Even with Kelvin Benjamin gone, Clay remained a non-factor. Buffalo should move on from Clay this offseason.
Dec 9 - 4:54 PM

Robert Foster caught 7-of-8 targets for 104 yards in Week 14 against the Jets.

He led Buffalo in receiving. Foster stepped in as the No. 2 wideout with Kelvin Benjamin gone, but the target share behind Zay Jones should remain a week to week situation. Foster is just an end-of-roster flyer.
Dec 9 - 4:51 PM

Zay Jones caught 3-of-9 targets for 22 yards in Week 14 against Buffalo.

It's a letdown after Jones went off for two touchdowns last week. Jones continued to lead Buffalo in targets, but had fewer yards than both Robert Foster and Isaiah McKenzie. The Buffalo pass offense isn't good enough to support any receivers. Jones should be avoided for a Week 15 matchup with Detroit.
Dec 9 - 4:50 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 12 times for 42 yards in Week 14 against the Jets.

Ivory led Buffalo in carries after LeSean McCoy's hamstring injury. He plodded his way to 3.5 YPC and was a non-factor in the pass game. Even if McCoy misses time, Ivory won't be more than a touchdown-dependent streamer.
Dec 9 - 4:40 PM

Josh Allen completed 18-of-36 passes for 206 yards and two interceptions in Week 14 against the Jets.

He also lost a fumble. Allen continued to do most of his damage on the ground, rushing for over 100 yards and a touchdown. It was a classic turnover-heavy Allen game, though he was forced to play without LeSean McCoy (hamstring). Allen has had flashes this year despite one of the worst supporting casts in the league. He'll get a matchup with the Lions in Week 15.
