LeSean McCoy’s hamstring injury might be somewhat serious.
After failing to finish practice Wednesday because of the injury, the NFL’s second-leading rusher was not on the practice field Thursday, according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak.
The Bills didn’t provide a specific explanation of the severity of McCoy’s injury. But the fact he couldn’t practice Thursday suggests this injury could hold him out of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
McCoy has been the catalyst during Buffalo’s four-game winning streak. He’s rushed for 470 yards and 5 touchdowns during the streak.
Mike Gillislee would likely start in McCoy’s place if the star running back doesn’t take the field. Gillislee has carried 17 times for 117 yards and a touchdown. Last week, he ran for 61 yards and his only score of the season during Buffalo’s emphatic victory against the San Francisco 49ers.
McCoy’s absence could be enough to skew Buffalo’s offense, which could spell the end of its hot streak.
