LeSean McCoy injured during Buffalo Bills practice

Published Add your comment

The Buffalo Bills have had an interesting off-season ahead of the 2015 Campaign, to say the very least.

They have a new head coach in Rex Ryan, who pulled the ultimate troll move when he decided to claim former Jets linebacker I.K Enemkpali off the Waiver wire after he punched Geno Smith in the face, breaking his jaw.

The Bills also pulled off a monster trade, bringing in star running back LeSean McCoy from the Philadelphia Eagles. But the Pro-Bowler might be set to miss some time after picking up an injury, according to a report from ESPN.

McCoy Injured

McCoy will have to undergo an MRI on his hamstring this morning after leaving practice on Tuesday. The former Eagles star was said to be grabbing at his leg during drills before eventually limping off the practice field.

Now this sort of injury wouldn't usually be that big a deal, but this is the Bills star player and the team would've been looking to put a big workload on his shoulders this season.

Hamstring Strain

The early diagnoses on the injury is a strained hamstring, which wouldn't be all that bad, unless of course the muscle has pulled completely away from the bone,  which then becomes  a very big deal. The MRI will determine that.

This comes at the worst possible time for the Bills, who are in an absolute injury hell at the running back position. 

Veteran Fred Jackson has been out for nearly all of training camp with a hamstring injury. The next man up, rookie Karlos Williams, who is seen as a serious challenger for the No. 2 running back job, is expected to be out for multiple weeks after a "procedure" that head coach Rex Ryan dubbed "sensitive."

And not to forget, Boobie Dixon and Bryce Brown are also currently out injured, leaving the Bills with a grand total of zero healthy running backs.
