Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is dealing with hamstring tightness

McCoy missed two games with a hamstring injury in 2015.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will be sitting out of OTAs this week.

According to Rex Ryan, McCoy is dealing with hamstring tightness. Although there is no reason to panic at this time, it's something to monitor over the next few months. The elusive running back dealt with hamstring issues last year, starting in the summer.

In mid-August of 2015, McCoy pulled this left hamstring. McCoy was kept out of action and missed the majority of the preseason. The running back was kept off the field until September 4 when he returned to participate in individual drills. He returned to action in Week 1 at less than 100 percent and played in Buffalo's first three games. After Buffalo's third game, Rex Ryan acknowledged that McCoy had been playing on "one and a half" legs. 

McCoy stated that he wouldn't return to action until he was 100 percent and proceeded to miss two games. The two weeks of rest helped as McCoy went over 90 total yards in his next eight games.

At this point in the off-season, Bills fans should not be worried. Buffalo can rest McCoy this week and keep him off the field next week at the team's mandatory mini-camp (June 14-16). It's important for McCoy to enter training camp at 100 percent. If he deals with any hamstring issues at that point, Bills fans may have a reason to be concerned.
