It’s not yet known how close to 100 percent he is, but Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is officially active for the team’s AFC Wildcard Playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.

McCoy suffered a sprained ankle back in Week 17. There had been some question as to whether he would actually play in this game. As the week progressed, it became apparent that McCoy would give it a go.
The six-time Pro Bowl running back put up nearly 1,600 total yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season. With Tyrod Taylor taking on the league’s best pass defense, he’s going to need help from McCoy on the ground.
We will find out soon enough if McCoy is capable of shouldering the load against a run defense that ranked in the bottom third of the NFL during the regular season.
