The Buffalo Bills came in to the 2015 NFL season with a lot of hope, and have so far played up to those lofty preseason expectations.

The Bills, with new head coach Rex Ryan in charge and Tyrod Taylor in his first season as a starting quarterback, have opened up with a 2-1 record that has seen them play incredibly well, topped off by their dominating 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins in week three.

But the Bills may have just hit a bit of a roadblock, with star running back LeSean McCoy potentially missing some time with an injury.

McCoy Injured

When McCoy said recently that it might be a good idea for him to take a week off in hopes of getting his hamstring back to 100%, Rex Ryan didn't seem too happy.

Ryan’s opinion on the matter has softened since then  with the coach saying it “doesn’t look good” for McCoy’s chances of playing against the Giants on Sunday as he’s “certainly not 100 percent.”

Hamstring Woes

“Get him healthy,” Ryan said, according to Mike Rodak of “He’s obviously a super talent. Sometimes a guy like that who’s less than 100 percent is still pretty darn good, but is it worth the time to get him at 100 percent or near 100 percent? That’s something we’re weighing right now.”

Karlos Williams would get a nice boost in playing time with McCoy out of the lineup. The rookie is averaging 7.8 yards per carry on 24 runs this season, so there's a reason for Ryan to not be too hesitant about resting Shady this weekend when the Bills take on the Giants.
