Bills RB LeSean McCoy got his first touchdown as a Bill Sunday on a 10-yard catch in the first half to put the team up 14-0 en route to a blowout win. But it was a lot of the dirty work that McCoy did in the offensive backfield that earned some new respect from his head coach.
“LeSean McCoy—he’s out there sometimes on one-and-a-half legs, but he’s unselfish,” said Ryan. “He’s doing a great job picking up blitzes. I feel frustrated for him because I know the kind of mark he wants to put on this team, but physically right now he’s not quite back to where we need him to be. He just has to keep going.”
Ryan is referencing McCoy’s hamstring injury suffered in the preseason that has kept him from performing at an optimum level for the Bills run game.
“He’s such a weapon,” said Ryan. “If he just gets a little bit back, just a little better, a little better, a little better, eventually all the way back, then that would be fantastic. It’s so hard to [give him time off] because he’s such a great player. Williams is a hoss there’s no doubt about that. We have to do what’s in the best interest of our football team and LeSean also. Golly, he’s such a good player. He at 80 percent, then he’s still a heck of a player.”
