McCoy (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
McCoy turned in a dud for those that rolled with him in the fantasy playoffs, generating just one yard on his two carries before departing after the Bills' opening drive. Chris Ivory will serve as the Bills' primary option out of the backfield for the rest of the contest. The team should shed more light on the extent of McCoy's injury after the contest and reveal whether or not he'll require an MRI.
McCoy was removed from Sunday's game against the Jets with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.
McCoy likely sustained the injury at some point during Buffalo's opening possession, as the Bills went with Chris Ivory as their primary running back on their subsequent two drives. If McCoy fails to return to the game before the end of the second quarter, the Bills should provide an update on his outlook for the rest of the contest coming out of halftime.
McCoy saw quarterback Josh Allen do a might convincing impersonation of a lead back with a team-high 135 rushing yards, while he generally found much tougher sledding. However, McCoy was able to work his way to a serviceable rushing yardage total with an 18-yard scamper and also tied for the team lead in receptions. The veteran back has encouragingly logged double-digit carries in five consecutive games, although the Bills offensive line's run-blocking struggles haven't allowed him to parlay that into much production except for a 113-yard outburst versus the Jets in Week 10. He'll look to improve his numbers in a rematch against Gang Green in Week 14.
McCoy ran for 46 yards on 17 carries and added a seven-yard catch during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars.
Bills fans were excited to see what their rookie quarterback, Josh Allen, could do, but McCoy is probably wondering whether Matt Barkley can make a guest appearance or two. After running for 113 yards with Barkley in the lineup last week, McCoy came back down to earth in a winning effort against the Jaguars as Allen led the team in rushing. The veteran is averaging just 2.7 yards per carry over his last five outings, but faces a favorable matchup against the Dolphins next Sunday as Miami has given up 4.8 yards per carry, among the worst in the league this season.
McCoy rushed 26 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns while catching his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 41-10 blowout win over the Jets.
The game script finally favored McCoy, as the entire Bills offense came alive under the direction of Matt Barkley. McCoy capped a two-play opening drive with a 28-yard rushing score and backed his way into the end zone from one yard out in the second quarter. Owners hoping this is the beginning of a late-season scoring outburst will have to wait to find out, as Buffalo's on bye in Week 11.
