Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy took part in an NFL Media interview series called Oklahoma Drill on NFL.com. McCoy discussed a wide variety of topics from being traded by the Philadelphia Eagles, Rex Ryan, the Bills offense and more.
One topic that McCoy really focused on was taking care of your body.
"I think it’s the small things you take for granted being young -- but as you get older, it wears on you," said McCoy. "Hamstrings, knees, things I’ve never hurt or felt before. … I got hurt a lot this year."
According to the Bills running back, he's shared his wisdom with fellow running back Karlos Williams.
"I’ve been telling [Karlos Williams that] even now, at a young age -- take care of your body, do all the right things, because you want to be there when you’re older. He’s a good kid -- works hard, plays hard. Hell of a player."
Both McCoy and Williams dealt with injuries throughout 2015, but they each played a big role in helping Buffalo finish the season first in the league in rushing. Hopefully both backs will be able to avoid the injury bug in 2016. Few teams in the NFL have a better 1-2 punch than McCoy and Williams.
