McCoy (ankle) rushed 19 times for 75 yards and brought in six of eight targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 10-3 AFC wild-card loss to the Jaguars. McCoy was in impressive form in the postseason battle, making an notably quick recovery from the ankle injury that befell him in the Week 17 playoff-clinching win over the Dolphins. The multi-time Pro Bowler ripped off a game-long 25-yard run and added a 16-yard catch among his six grabs, serving as his team's most consistent offensive weapon on the afternoon. However, the 29-year-old wasn't able to put it all on his shoulders, and Tyrod Taylor's head injury on the final drive made Buffalo's already steep chances of driving down the field for a touchdown even smaller. McCoy finishes his third Bills season with 287 rushes for 1,138 yards (4.0 yards per carry) and six touchdowns along with 50 receptions on 57 targets for 356 yards and another score, all over 16 regular-season games.
McCoy (ankle) will be active for Sunday's playoff game against the Jaguars. McCoy will thus give it a go Sunday in the franchise's first playoff game since Jan. 8, 2000. It remains to be seen how much work he'll be able to handle, but given the magnitude of the contest, look for the Bills to get the ball into the hands of their top playmaker as much as possible, within the context of McCoy working through a balky ankle. Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy are on hand to spell McCoy when he needs a breather, or if he suffers any in-game setbacks Sunday.
McCoy (ankle) is in line to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Jaguars, barring any setbacks in pre-game warmups, The Buffalo News reports. McCoy, who did not practice either Wednesday or Thursday, was listed as a limited participant Friday, with the report noting that the running back "spent the week watching extra film in order to compensate for potential physical limitations." Confirmation of McCoy's status, either way, will arrive once the Bills' inactives are released in advance of Sunday's 1:05 ET kickoff. In line to provide backfield depth and relief for McCoy, assuming he suits up, will be Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy.
McCoy (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Jaguars after being listed as a limited practice participant Friday. That McCoy was listed as a limited practice participant after being deemed a non-participant both Wednesday and Thursday is a step in the right direction, but his status for this weekend's game is tied in large part to how well his ankle responded to Friday's work, and will likely not be confirmed until the Bills release their inactives prior to Sunday's 1:05 ET kickoff. Given the magnitude of the game, we'd be surprised if McCoy didn't try to give it a go, but that's not a lock at this stage and hinges on how comfortable the team's top back feels cutting on his balky ankle.
Bills coach Sean McDermott said that McCoy will "do some things today" in the individual part of Friday's practice and that the team will go from there with his injured ankle, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. McCoy is almost certainly trending toward a questionable designation for this week's playoff game in Jacksonville, and the matter truly won't be settled until Sunday morning's game-day announcements.
