Bills RB LeSean McCoy stayed down on the field for a bit after a Dolphins defensive lineman landed on top of him at the end of a run play. With McCoy down on the turf on his right side, the full weight of the Miami player landed on him jamming his right shoulder into the ground. McCoy was checked by the medical staff and athletic trainers, got to his feet and walked to the sidelines. Head coach Rex Ryan provided an update postgame.
“Well he wanted to go back in the game, so that’s a great sign,” said Ryan who had no official diagnosis or prognosis postgame. “The fact that he wanted to go back in the game. He had 112 yards, so that was a great sign for us. But at that time quite honestly we never needed him.”
McCoy was eventually sent to the locker room late in the fourth quarter after they determined with the game in hand he would not re-enter the contest. McCoy admitted he sustained an injury, but believes with treatment even on a short week that he’ll be able to play against the Jets.
“This injury I was like, ‘Man another one.’ I’ll be alright though,” McCoy said. “We’ll treat it up and do different things. I’ll be fine.”
The Bills face the Jets on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium for an 8:25 pm kickoff.
