Despite suffering a hamstring injury during practice on Tuesday, Bills running back LeSean McCoy should be ready to play by the time the regular season rolls around, according to reports.

On Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Adam Schefter of ESPN, and John Wawrow of the Associated Press all separately reported that sources informed them that McCoy's injury shouldn't prevent him from playing on September 13, when the Bills host the Colts in the team's first regular season game of 2015.

The injury occurred when McCoy went down during red-zone work on Tuesday. McCoy was able to limp to the sidelines and then to the locker room. Shortly after the conclusion of practice, head coach Rex Ryan informed the media contingent in attendance that McCoy would have an MRI on his injured left hamstring. Ryan didn't, however, offer many details regarding the severity of the injury, only saying that the trainer told him that McCoy's hamstring wasn't off the bone and that it was still "intact."

Now that McCoy reportedly won't miss any regular season time, the Bills have to be exhaling. Ryan hasn't kept his desire to run the football a secret, which arguably makes McCoy the team's most important offensive player. Losing him before the season even starts would have been a serious blow to the team's chances of qualifying for the postseason for the first time since 1999.

Still, the Bills' running back depth chart is currently ripped to shreds. In addition to the knock McCoy suffered, Fred Jackson (hamstring), Boobie Dixon (calf) and Bryce Brown (hamstring) are also dealing with their own injuries. That might leave the running game in the hands of rookies likes Bronson Hill and Ricky Seale, for the time being.

Both players went undrafted and signed with the Bills as free agents.
