McCoy doesn’t see QB battle clouding team prep

Bills feature back LeSean McCoy is excited for his first training camp with Buffalo. There is a quarterback competition that will dominate the conversation in training camp with three signal callers in the hunt. But McCoy doesn’t see the competition impacting the offensive unit’s preparation for the regular season.

“I don’t know how it is for all the players but for myself, I’ve been in this position a couple of times so I’m used to it,” said McCoy. “You just wait it out. Let the guys compete. You encourage them, support them each play, each drive. You let them handle the offense and just support them. That’s all you can do. The coaches have the last say-so. That’s how it’s always been—so as a player you just compete with them.”

It sounds like McCoy and his teammates are more focused on executing their own assignments within the offense than they are with who is taking the snaps.

“All I know is every day I come out to compete and get better with the players that we have in the huddle,” he said. “We have to go out there and play. We let the coaches—I’m sure the coaches have been used to this, too. It’s a hard job to try to get the roster together. Some players you probably love, some players you probably like. And then two guys are battling it out and they all look good. The hard part is just picking one of them. We’ll let them have that job. I’ll just stick to running and catching and blocking.”
