LeSean McCoy expected to play in Week 1

The Buffalo Bills received good news on Wednesday. The running back should be good to go for the team in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Buffalo Bills fans can now exhale. Star running back LeSean McCoy is going to be back for Buffalo’s Week 1 contest against the Indianapolis Colts according to multiple media outlets.

McCoy suffered a hamstring injury on Tuesday night and had to have an MRI done late in the evening to see if it was a strain or pull. The injury leaves Buffalo very thin entering Thursday’s game with the Browns. The team will be without McCoy, Fred Jackson (hamstring), Anthony Dixon (calf), Karlos Williams (undisclosed) and possibly Bryce Brown (minor hamstring).

That means that undrafted running backs Bronson Hill and Ricky Seale may see significant carries. Marcus Thigpen is another possible candidate to see carries for the Bills. Seale is expected to handle the load in the second half of the game. Interestingly enough, the running back only saw 23 last season at Stanford. He may come close to getting that many carries alone for Buffalo on Thursday night.

Regardless of who sees carries in the preseason, the good news is that all of Buffalo’s backs are expected back for Week 1.
