The Buffalo Bills have surely been dealt more than their fair share of injuries throughout the season. Running back LeSean McCoy is no exception. After missing Week 8 due to a hamstring injury, the veteran running back says he is feeling better as each day goes on.
“I feel good,” McCoy said, per Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News. “Mentally, I feel great. … Just getting over that step of, ‘if I make this hard cut, will I feel it?’ I did it today, different runs. So I’m ready to roll.”
McCoy was limited in practice on Thursday and did not commit to whether he would definitely suit up in Week 9 for a road game against the Seattle Seahawks.
“I got some time. Each day at a time I’ll progress and get better and better, so we’ll see later on during the week.”
In not too surprising of an outcome, the Buffalo Bills lost last week to the New England Patriots while McCoy was sidelined. If he is deemed healthy enough to play this week, he faces a brutal road battle in Seattle.
The Seahawks’ defense ranks fifth against the run, allowing only 89.7 yards on average at a pace of 3.4 yards per attempt. It has only given up four scores on the ground as well. The Seahawks are coming off a loss and should be playing quite fiercely at home.
If he does suit up, McCoy has a wonderful Monday Night prime time record that could mean good things for the Bills. He has scored six touchdowns in Monday night showdowns, including a 184-yard performance when he was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.
The Bills at least have one extra day of preparation to decide on McCoy’s status for this week.
