Bills RB McCoy misses practice, listed as day-to-day

Buffalo Bills' sideline reporter Sal Capccio joins Good Show to breakdown the final minutes of Sunday's clinching contest against the Miami Dolphins, with fans and players providing score updates.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Bills running back LeSean McCoy missed practice Wednesday because of a right ankle injury and it’s uncertain whether he can play Sunday at Jacksonville in Buffalo’s first playoff game in 18 years.

Coach Sean McDermott would only list the Bills’ top offensive threat as day to day and declined to say whether McCoy would be able to practice at all this week. McCoy did not speak with reporters during time designated for interviews, as team officials said he was being treated by trainers.

McCoy was carted off the field after being hurt on the opening drive of the second half of Buffalo’s 22-16 win at Miami on Sunday.

The win coupled with Baltimore’s 31-27 loss to Cincinnati clinched Buffalo’s first playoff berth since the 1999 season. As the AFC’s sixth seed, the Bills (9-7) will face South Division champion Jacksonville (10-6) in a wild-card game.

McCoy leads Buffalo with 1,138 yards rushing, 59 catches and eight touchdowns, including two receiving. Overall, his 1,586 yards from scrimmage account for 33 per cent of the Bills’ total.

Buffalo lacks depth at the position a week after backup Travaris Cadet broke his ankle.

That leaves Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy as the only running backs on the roster, along with fullback Patrick DiMarco. Murphy was promoted off the practice squad last week and led Buffalo with 41 yards rushing against Miami.

On Tuesday, the Bills added insurance by signing running back Aaron Green to their practice squad. Green played two games with the Los Angeles Rams last season.
