The 6-1 New England Patriots visit the 4-3 Buffalo Bills on Sunday with a chance to build a comfortable 3-game lead in the AFC East. The Bills will already face an uphill battle as their receiving corps, most notably Sammy Watkins, has been depleted by injuries.
To make matters worse, pro bowl running back LeSean McCoy appears to be on track to miss Sunday’s matchup.

McCoy did not practice on Friday. He hasn’t practiced all week after struggling mightily in Buffalo’s Week 7 loss at Miami.
McCoy originally tweaked his hamstring last Thursday’s practice and was then limited in last Friday’s Bills activities before being deemed a game-time decision down in South Florida.
This week’s developments have taken a different tune. McCoy has yet to appear on the practice field at all. And, after he was forced to leave the Miami game due to more pain in his hamstring, it’s hard to imagine the Bills would attempt to risk anything with the linchpin of their offense.
