It looks like Buffalo will have to finish Sunday’s contest without LeSean McCoy.
The Bills announced that their No. 1 running back is doubtful to return versus the Miami Dolphins with a hamstring injury.
Third-year running back Mike Gillislee replaced McCoy in the backfield.
McCoy was seen on the sideline with an ice pack on his left thigh during the second on Sunday.
The Bills running back has been bothered by his hamstring ailment all season. Buffalo insisted that McCoy was ready to play this week after he reportedly aggravated it in last week’s elusive 140-yard performance versus San Francisco.
It now appears that the Bills rushed back McCoy.
The eighth-year runner had just 11 rushing yards at the time of his exit. Hamstring injuries have to be handled delicately. Rest is paramount with all injuries to the hamstring. Buffalo’s decision to rush McCoy back could serve as a costly blow. McCoy’s hamstring setback in Week 7 puts a major strain on his status going forward for the near future.
