McCain (quadriceps) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice session.
McCain was inactive in Week 11, but a limited practice Monday and a full practice Tuesday put him on track to play in Week 12. The backup pass rusher likely will see the field in a typical role as he looks to build on the career-best 5.0 sacks he's racked up to this point in the season.
McCain (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.
McCain plays sparingly on defense, but he has accrued a career-high five sacks this season. He's mainly used in certain pass-rush situations, yet he doesn't have the consistency of an IDP starter. Expect Jeremiah Attaochu to play more defensive snaps in McCain's absence.
McCain is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills with a quadriceps injury.
McCain's only practice reps this week came in a limited session Friday, so he is likely a game-day decision at this point. Hayes Pullard (neck) and James Onwualu (quadriceps) are listed as doubtful, so if McCain is unable to play Sunday the Chargers' linebacking corps will have their depth severely tested.
McCain recorded four tackles (three solo), two sacks and two forced fumbles in the 21-0 win over the Broncos on Sunday.
McCain was the main beneficiary of a near constant pass rush created by Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa, as the 25-year-old was able to take down quarterback Trevor Siemian in the middle of a collapsing pocket on multiple occasions. Despite being a situational pass rusher, McCain has now recorded five sacks, easily a career high for the fourth-year pro.
McCain sustained the injury early in the game and returned to the field shortly after the Chargers announced him as questionable. The 25-year-old will likely resume his role as a rotational outside linebacker for the Chargers.
