LeSean McCoy is retiring from the NFL.
The announcement was made by a tweet from the Philadelphia Eagles Twitter account saying that McCoy will retire tomorrow as an Eagle, so his career ends after 12 seasons. Overall, the former second-round pick totaled 2,457 carries, 11,102 rushing yards, 73 rushing touchdowns, 518 receptions, 3,898 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns with the Eagles, Bills, Chiefs, and Buccaneers. He was a two-time All-Pro selection, six-time Pro Bowler, and ended up finishing with a couple of Super Bowl rings over his final two seasons as a member of championship squads in Kansas City and Tampa Bay. It's fitting that the Pennsylvania native will end his career in Philadelphia—where he was one of the NFL's most electric players.
LeSean McCoy is off the injury report and will play in Week 6.
Tampa Bay is close to full strength off the mini bye, as Leonard Fournette (ankle) is the only weapon listed on the injury report. Whether or not Fournette suits up, McCoy won't be a highly recommended play behind Ronald Jones II.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday night.
McCoy is unable to go on a short week, so with Leonard Fournette (ankle) doubtful, the team will rely on third-round pick Ke'Shawn Vaughn to fill in behind Ronald Jones II. There is a definite chance Vaughn plays well enough that McCoy loses snaps when he's healthy enough to return.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is week-to-week.
McCoy will miss this Thursday's game against the Bears with a grade 2 ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, and he's week-to-week after that.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is out for the remainder of today's game.
McCoy temporarily tried to play through his ankle issue, but he's not out for the rest of the afternoon. Before leaving, McCoy had one carry for three yards and one reception for three yards.
LeSean McCoy has returned to the game.
McCoy left early with an ankle injury, but he’s back out there for the Bucs. Look for him to continue mixing in behind Ronald Jones II.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially questionable to return to today's game.
McCoy limped off during the first series for the Bucs, and he was hobbling around on discomfort in the sidelines while getting checked out. We'll update you on McCoy's status when more information becomes available, but Ronald Jones is set for a massive workload while McCoy remains out.
The Buccaneers have signed LeSean McCoy to a one-year deal.
McCoy will get the veteran minimum, but he landed in a good spot to potentially have fantasy value in a high-powered offense. That said, there is also a chance McCoy doesn’t even make the team if he doesn’t show well in camp, and Ronald Jones II should still be viewed as the starter with rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn as the most likely candidate to push him.
LeSean McCoy is officially inactive for Super Bowl LIV.
This was the expectation, as the Chiefs are set with Damien Williams at running back with Darwin Thompson backing him up. McCoy has not been playing late in the season or during Kansas City's Super Bowl run, but this has to hurt for the veteran running back. McCoy seems very unlikely to return to the Chiefs in 2020.
LeSean McCoy (illness) is inactive for the AFC Championship Game.
McCoy played just one snap last week, so this isn’t a huge deal for Kansas City as Damien Williams dominates touches. Even if the Chiefs win, the veteran back probably won’t have much of a role in Super Bowl LIV.
LeSean McCoy (illness) is officially listed as questionable for the AFC Championship.
McCoy is battling an illness, but there's a chance he might not suit up given that he hasn't been getting playing time on offense and does not contribute on special teams. The veteran running back might need to show he's at full health and can make an impact on offense if called upon to play on Sunday.
LeSean McCoy is inactive for Sunday night.
With Damien Williams back in the lineup for Kansas City, McCoy is a healthy scratch again. The veteran running back does not need to be held in any redraft leagues playing in Week 17.
LeSean McCoy plays behind both Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware in Week 15 win.
Some fantasy owners were hoping for another monster performance in the snow for McCoy based on what he's done in the past, but he was limited to just 16 yards on six carries. With Damien Williams (rib, illness) nearing a return, McCoy probably doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues as Kansas City looks to earn a first-round bye over the next two weeks. They will take on the Bears next Sunday night.
LeSean McCoy is not in concussion protocol.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid just said that there was some confusion at the end of the Monday night game a week ago and that McCoy did not actually have a concussion. The veteran running back will be good to go for this Sunday against the Raiders.
LeSean McCoy is being evaluated for a concussion.
The Chiefs haven't said anything about McCoy yet, but ESPN's Lisa Salters says he went to the locker room and is being evaluated for a concussion. With under four minutes remaining, don't expect McCoy to return to tonight's game. Before leaving, McCoy had seven carries for 29 yards and a touchdown along with four receptions for 28 yards; he also had another fumble but was lucky enough to have it bounce back to him. The Andy Reid favorite figures to continue getting work in Kansas City's backfield moving forward now that he's again active following his healthy scratch in Week 10.
LeSean McCoy is active for Week 11.
McCoy is again playing for the Chiefs after he was a healthy scratch last week, and there's a chance the veteran running back (who is a favorite of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid) gets a good amount of playing time after Damien Williams missed the last two practices of the week due to a personal matter. McCoy is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups until he gets more playing time, though.
LeSean McCoy is inactive for the Chiefs.
McCoy had been starting for Kansas City for most of this season, but the veteran running back appears to be a healthy scratch. This is only slightly surprising because of Andy Reid's feelings about McCoy, but he's been outplayed by Damien Williams lately. Williams could be set for a similar workload to the one he had toward the end of last season, but Darrel Williams and now an active Darwin Thompson are also likely to mix in behind him. McCoy is not a must-hold in redraft leagues.
LeSean McCoy does not carry a Week 5 injury designation.
McCoy is ready to go for Sunday night against the Colts after practicing fully yesterday and today. With Damien Williams (knee) set to return after missing the last two games, McCoy is a FLEX option for Week 5.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
McCoy banged up an ankle again at the end of the Chiefs' Week 4 win over the Lions, but a limited practice today is a good sign for his status. We'll track the veteran running back's practice activity the next couple of days.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
McCoy is good to go for Sunday against the Lions, and with Damien Williams (knee) looking doubtful, he could be set for a nice workload in Week 4. The veteran running back is a solid fantasy option as the likely top running back for the explosive Chiefs offense this weekend.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
After McCoy didn't finish last week's game against the Ravens, practicing on Wednesday is a good sign for his Week 4 availability. Expect the veteran running back to also be limited in tomorrow's practice, but we'll update you if anything changes.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is questionable to return for the Chiefs.
McCoy entered the game with an ankle injury, and his day is probably done. Working as the starter and clear top running back with Damien Williams (knee) out, McCoy received most of the critical work and scoring opportunities and had eight carries for 54 yards and a touchdown along with three receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially active for the Chiefs.
McCoy was limited in practice throughout the week, and this was expected. With Damien Williams (knee) out, McCoy is set to start and could get a heavier workload in Week 3. McCoy is facing a tough Ravens defense, though, and he’s more of a FLEX option for today.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.
McCoy is dealing with a minor ankle injury and is expected to be ready to go to face the Ravens. With Damien Williams (knee) already ruled out, McCoy is set to start if he's active. McCoy’s status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
McCoy is likely to play this Sunday against the Ravens, and it looks like he'll be the starter and could get more work than usual with Damien Williams (knee) looking to be on the doubtful side of things. We'll update you with McCoy's official game status for Week 3 when it's released tomorrow.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) "has a shot" to play in Week 3.
McCoy injured his ankle late in Sunday's win over the Raiders, but it didn't appear to be anything serious. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says McCoy's MRI did not show any significant damage. We expect the veteran running back will be out there this weekend against the Ravens, but we'll track his status this week.
LeSean McCoy is signing a one-year deal with the Chiefs, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The deal includes $3 million guaranteed, so it’s definitely a nice chunk of change that suggests McCoy will have a sizable role on the league’s most loaded offense. Damien Williams is expected to remain the lead back, but this is a significant blow to his high-upside RB2 status, and rookie Darwin Thompson suddenly has little value in redraft leagues. Consider McCoy a FLEX option.
The Bills are releasing LeSean McCoy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Buffalo had been adamant about having McCoy be a part of their team in 2019, but we had a feeling they were just hoping for a trade, and it turns out that was likely the case. McCoy's $9 million salary simply isn't a value for the Bills at this point. The team will now move forward with Frank Gore as their lead back, and rookie third-rounder Devin Singletary gets a big boost as he opens the season with a definite role. This also likely means that T.J. Yeldon has made the 53-man roster and is worth keeping an eye on. McCoy is an obvious fit with Houston or Tampa Bay.
LeSean McCoy handles 12 touches in Week 17 win.
McCoy rushed ten times for 26 yards and a touchdown, also adding two receptions for 18 yards. The age-30 campaign for Shady was easily the worst of his career, as he rushed 161 times for 514 yards (3.2 YPC) and three touchdowns with 34 receptions for 238 yards through the air. It was the first time McCoy had been held below 4.0 yards per carry in his career. The team apparently wants him back in 2019 for the final year of his deal, though, so perhaps McCoy can bounce back as the roster surely adds talent around franchise quarterback Josh Allen. For now, the veteran projects to be overvalued in fantasy drafts based on name recognition.
Bills bench LeSean McCoy in Week 16.
McCoy carried six times for nine yards along with three receptions for ten yards against the Patriots. It's unclear why McCoy was benched, but he must've done something wrong after the veteran running back admitted Bills head coach Sean McDermott did the right thing by putting him in his place. McCoy probably won't be benched for Week 17 against Miami, so he'll be in the FLEX mix with fantasy titles on the line.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
McCoy said himself he would play this Sunday against the Patriots, and this full practice indicates he will indeed be out there. McCoy was held to 12 carries for 13 yards, doing his most of his damage through the air in the first matchup with New England, so he's a risky Week 16 FLEX option with fantasy titles on the line.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited in today’s practice.
This is a fine start to the week for McCoy, who is day-to-day. Ideally, he’ll get up to a full practice tomorrow or Friday.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is officially inactive against the Lions.
McCoy was reportedly set to be out, and now it’s official. Consider him day-to-day with his hamstring injury, and we’d think he has a good chance of playing in Week 16 after back-to-back limited practices to end the week.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 15.
McCoy was again limited in today's practice, making it two straight days with at least a limited practice to end the week. The veteran running back probably has a decent chance to play on Sunday, but his status probably won't be known until 11:30 AM ET after pregame warmups.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was officially limited in today's practice.
This is a good step in the right direction for McCoy, who would do well to log another limited practice tomorrow. He's likely headed for a questionable tag when the final Week 15 injury report is released, but he ultimately might be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Lions.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) officially did not practice today.
McCoy's Week 15 status is up in the air at this point, so check back tomorrow and Friday for his practice status. Ideally, he'll at least be a limited participant before the weekend.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is day-to-day, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
McCoy should be considered questionable for this Sunday against the Lions. We'll track the veteran running back's practice status throughout the week, but ideally you should have a stronger option for your lineup in the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) has been ruled out agaisnt the Jets.
McCoy left in the first half and has now been ruled out at the start of the second half. Before leaving, McCoy just two carries for one yard. Now fantasy owners have to hope the veteran running back doesn't miss much longer than the rest of today's game, but McCoy hasn't been a great fantasy option this season.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is questionable to return against the Jets.
McCoy is known to suffer minor ailments before playing through them, so assuming this injury isn't too serious, he'll hopefully be able to return to today's game. We'll update you as more information becomes available on the veteran running back's status.
LeSean McCoy gets 19 touches against the Dolphins.
McCoy carried 15 times for 52 yards and caught four passes for 12 yards in the Bills' Week 13 loss. In standard-scoring leagues, McCoy has hit double-digit fantasy points just twice this season, but next up he gets a Jets team he had one of those games with a 26/113/2 performance in Week 10. McCoy is at least a FLEX option for the first week of fantasy playoffs.
LeSean McCoy handles 18 touches as Buffalo improves to 4-7.
McCoy rushed 17 times for 46 yards, also adding a seven-yard reception. The Jaguars unsurprisingly bottled up the running game, but that didn't include Josh Allen, who rushed 13 times for 99 yards and a score. Fortunately for McCoy, he gets a prime bounce-back opportunity next Sunday against the shreddable Miami defense, so he should be viewed as a stronger FLEX than usual for Week 13.
LeSean McCoy scores twice against the Jets.
After combining for 24 carries for 24 yards the past three weeks, McCoy exploded for 26 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns along with one reception for five yards against a struggling Jets team. The first score was a 28-yard touchdown early in the game, and he later added a one-yard score. These were McCoy's first two touchdowns of the season, so he was due. Now the Bills have a bye week to give the veteran running back time to rest and get ready for the final six games of the season.
LeSean McCoy gets 14 touches against the Bears.
Chicago shut down McCoy, limiting him to ten carries for ten yards and four receptions for 19 yards. Buffalo's offense is really struggling right now, making it difficult to trust McCoy as anything more than a low-floor FLEX option in fantasy lineups.
LeSean McCoy totals 95 yards in Bills' loss.
The Patriots shut down McCoy in the running game, which was rather predictable given New England's ability to take away the go-to of opposing offenses. The veteran running back carried 12 times for 13 yards, with his effective runs coming on the team's first drive from the wildcat formation. McCoy also had six receptions for 82 yards, making it a productive night for fantasy owners. Assuming he doesn't get traded tomorrow, McCoy faces the Bears in Week 9.
LeSean McCoy has cleared concussion protocol.
McCoy is expected to be ready to go tomorrow night against the Patriots, so you can get him into fantasy lineups if you were hoping to play him ahead of someone in the upcoming late-afternoon games today. However, McCoy is more of a FLEX option against a Patriots team that's likely to try and take him out of the game.
LeSean McCoy (concussion) is officially questionable for Week 8.
McCoy remains in concussion protocol, as he was again limited in today's practice. Now it just comes to whether McCoy can gain clearance before Monday night's matchup with the Patriots. Even if McCoy is active, he'd be just a FLEX option this week against a Patriots defense that is likely to focus on taking him away and forcing Buffalo's passing game to beat them.
LeSean McCoy (concussion) remains limited in practice.
McCoy remains in concussion protocol, but the good news is he apparently hasn't had any setbacks to this point. The official injury report for Monday night's game will be released sometime tomorrow, and it could give more clarity on the situation ahead of Sunday's games.
LeSean McCoy (concussion) was officially limited in today's practice.
This shows McCoy is making good progress through the concussion protocol. He has an extra day to get cleared with the Bills playing on Monday night, and it's looking like he should get cleared. Check back on the veteran running back's practice status tomorrow.
LeSean McCoy is in concussion protocol.
This explains the head injury McCoy left today's game for earlier today. McCoy has over a week to clear concussion protocol and play next Monday night against the Patriots. If McCoy is unable to get cleared, Chris Ivory would fill in as Buffalo's starting running back.
LeSean McCoy (head) is out for the rest of today's game.
The Bills aren't calling it a concussion, instead calling it a head injury. Either way, hopefully he's feeling better soon. McCoy's day ends with two carries for one yard. Chris Ivory will handle most of the backfield work with McCoy out.
LeSean McCoy heads to the locker room with apparent leg injury.
The veteran running back appeared to twist his foot/ankle on an early first-quarter play against the Colts. McCoy was down on the field for a bit before going over to the sideline with some help from trainers. However, the Bills are now calling it a head injury for McCoy, so it sounds like he's being evaluated for a concussion. We'll update you as more information becomes available.
LeSean McCoy handles 19 touches in Week 6 loss.
McCoy rushed 16 times for 73 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in a 20-13 defeat. The Bills could really only do damage on the ground in a defensive battle, and McCoy seems to be getting his footing after a slow start to the season. A trade remains a real possibility, but in Buffalo, McCoy has regained low-end RB2/FLEX value as the team's lone skill-position playmaker. He should be featured again next Sunday against the Colts with Josh Allen (elbow) potentially missing time.
LeSean McCoy handles 26 touches in upset win over the Titans.
McCoy rushed 24 times for 85 yards in the victory, also adding two receptions for a team-high 23 yards as a receiver. Buffalo rode the running game with 43 combined runs between McCoy, Chris Ivory (14 carries), Josh Allen (four carries), and Ray-Ray McCloud (one carry), which allowed them to work the clock and play stout defense in low-scoring battle. The workload alone will have McCoy trending back towards RB2 status, but it might be best to keep expectations in check until we see it become a trend, especially considering the Bills head to Houston in Week 6.
LeSean McCoy gets eight touches against the Packers.
McCoy had five carries for 24 yards and three receptions for 13 yards in the Week 4 loss. For as good as McCoy is, his fantasy value isn't going to be maximized playing behind one of the league's worst offensive lines. The veteran running back has yet to receive double-digit carries in a game this season, but perhaps another several days before Week 5 will give his rib more time to heal.
LeSean McCoy (rib) is officially active for Week 4.
McCoy was listed as questionable heading into the weekend, but he said that he was going to play and is now officially active. Consider McCoy more of a FLEX option in Lambeau Field.
LeSean McCoy (rib) is officially listed as questionable for this week.
McCoy had said earlier this week that he would be playing this Sunday against the Packers, but he's officially listed as questionable. Keep in mind, there is no "probable" tag, which is what McCoy would likely be listed at if the NFL still had that injury designation. The questionable is probably just to note that McCoy is less than 100%, but we expect he'll be active. McCoy's official game status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
LeSean McCoy (rib) says he's playing this week.
After today's practice, McCoy said "I'm playing this week. There's still some pain but I felt good today. I'm ready to go out and get this things going again." It was apparently a pain-tolerance thing for McCoy, so it's not like the doctors are going to hold him out because of this rib cartilage injury. He might be limited in practice throughout the week, but the veteran running back will be on the field this Sunday against the Packers. McCoy is a FLEX option for Week 4.
LeSean McCoy (rib) will be limited in today's practice.
McCoy was limited last week before not playing on Sunday against the Vikings. We'll see if he makes any progress to a full participant by Friday, but consider him 50/50 for Week 4 for now. Chris Ivory would draw another start if McCoy misses a second straight game.
LeSean McCoy (rib) is inactive for Week 3.
This is apparently a pain-tolerance thing for McCoy, but he’s sitting out this week against a stingy Minnesota defense. Chris Ivory is the next man up for the Bills, but he’s a risky FLEX option against one of the league’s best defenses. We expect McCoy will be ready to go for a Week 4 matchup in Green Bay, but we’ll monitor his practice status this week.
LeSean McCoy (rib) is listed as questionable for Week 3.
McCoy was headed toward a questionable tag all week, and he'll likely be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Vikings. Even if McCoy does suit up, he's a risky play against Minnesota's elite defense, as there's a chance McCoy is pulled from the game early if it turns into a blowout.
LeSean McCoy (rib) remains limited in practice.
McCoy is likely headed to a game-time decision for Sunday versus Minnesota, but we'll see how he's listed when the official injury report for the game is released tomorrow. Chris Ivory would be in line for a nice workload if McCoy sits.
LeSean McCoy (ribs) was limited in practice.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott said this would be the case, and it's a pretty good start to the week for McCoy as he looks to play Sunday against Minnesota. Off the field is another matter, though. We'll update you on McCoy's Thursday practice status when it's revealed tomorrow.
LeSean McCoy has affidavit filed against him.
The affidavit has been filed by Stephanie Maisonet, the mother of McCoy's six-year-old son. Maisonet is supporting Delicia Cordon, who already filed a lawsuit against McCoy and alleged the Bills running back was responsible for her getting robbed and beaten. Maisonet is alleging that McCoy abused their son and left a bruise. The bottom line is now that two women are coming out against McCoy for alleged abuse, so this probably isn't going to end well for him. Don't be surprised if the NFL places him on the Commissioner's Exempt list soon, and we might not see McCoy back on the field until this is sorted out. Remember, Adrian Peterson served a de-factor year-long suspension for disciplining his son with a switch; that might be the precedent for potential discipline here.
LeSean McCoy (ribs) is day-to-day with his cracked rib cartilage.
The veteran running back is likely around 50/50 to play on Sunday against the Vikings, and the Bills could certainly use him in a very difficult matchup. We'll monitor McCoy's practice status throughout the week before the injury report is released ahead of the weekend.
LeSean McCoy has cracked rib cartilage and is questionable for Week 3 against the Vikings, according to Adam Schefter.
Schefter says that McCoy will miss one game at the most, and it sounds like there's at least a decent chance he suits up in Minnesota. If he does play, fantasy owners might be wise to look elsewhere against a stout front, as McCoy could be limited and/or leave the game early if things get out of hand, which is a definite possibility for Josh Allen's first career road start against the league's best defense. Chris Ivory probably isn't worth a top waiver claim this week, especially with Bills-Vikings kicking off at 1 PM ET.
LeSean McCoy contained as Bills fall to the Chargers, 31-20.
McCoy rushed nine times for 39 yards, also adding four receptions for 29 yards. It was the second game in a row that Shady was held in check, and things won't get any easier against Minnesota in Week 3. Once again, he should be treated as a decent FLEX option, especially since he's dealing with some rib discomfort after Sunday's loss. Even when the schedule softens up, McCoy could have a difficult time putting up consistent numbers on an offense that lacks talent, but at least Josh Allen's dual-threat ability should open things up some.
LeSean McCoy (ribs) is questionable to return against the Chargers.
McCoy went over to the sideline a little earlier in the game, and it's just now being called a rib injury. Considering he's questionable to return, the injury probably isn't too bad. But his afternoon might be over.
LeSean McCoy gets eight touches in Week 1.
McCoy carried seven times for 22 rushing yards and caught one pass for -1 receiving yards in Buffalo's 47-3 loss versus the Ravens. Look for McCoy to get more work in Week 2 against the Chargers, but there's obvious downside with him playing behind a subpar offensive line.
LeSean McCoy is dealing with a groin injury.
The injury is thought to be minor, but it's especially worth noting for a player with 2,626 touches in his career. The Bills do not play their third preseason game until Sunday, and the team would probably like him to be out there because he's a big part of their offense, so we'll see how McCoy progresses throughout the week.
LeSean McCoy says Chris Ivory will take a lot of short-yardage work this year.
McCoy talked about the addition of Ivory, saying: "It’ll be fun working with him. I’m sure he’ll do a lot of the short yardage, keep me fresh. Hopefully he doesn’t take too many touchdowns from me. Other than that, excited to work with him." This isn't a huge concern immediately, as McCoy is joking around a bit, and Ivory could just take a lot of third-and-short attempts while McCoy handles most of the work around the goal line. But the comments are worth noting. Hopefully we'll get some more clarity on the goal-line back situation for the Bills throughout training camp and the preseason. Last season, McCoy had six rushing touchdowns while then-backup Mike Tolbert had one.
Bills GM Brandon Beane expects LeSean McCoy to be back with the team in 2018.
Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine, Beane says he expects his leading rusher to be "a big part of what we plan on doing in 2018." There have been some trade rumors going around about McCoy, but they are probably all just fake news. McCoy will be 30 this July and has notched nearly 2,200 carries in his career, but he still looks explosive when on the field and is likely to continue to be a workhorse back for the Bills this season. Though he averaged a career-low 4.0 yards per carry last season, injuries are probably more of a concern than a decline in production for McCoy—especially if the Bills don't add any big-time threats to his workload in the backfield.
LeSean McCoy gets 25 touches in Wild Card Round.
McCoy entered the game with his ankle injury suffered in Week 17, but he didn't show any issues when he was in the game. The veteran running back carried 19 times for 75 rushing yards and caught six passes for 44 receiving yards, leading the team in both rushing and receiving. McCoy could've had a bigger game, but a long reception on a late drive was brought back by a holding penalty. Looking ahead to next season, McCoy is likely to remain a selection in the first two rounds of most fantasy drafts given his volume each week.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card Round.
The indication for most of the week has been that McCoy would be in the lineup against the Jaguars, and it is now official. Though he’s not at 100%, McCoy should probably run fine once he gets going in the game. However, Jacksonville is likely to try and not allow McCoy to beat them, so he carries some risk in fantasy playoff lineups despite being a high-volume option.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for the Wild Card Round.
McCoy was able to get in a limited practice today after missing Wednesday and Thursday with his ankle issue. He now has another day to hit rehab hard and get his ankle in the best possible condition ahead of Sunday. We fully expect McCoy to be out there against the Jaguars, even if it's at less than 100%. For fantasy purposes, McCoy should remain a high-volume option, as the Bills are still likely to feed him touches in the game.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) did not practice today.
This is now two straight missed practices for McCoy, but he said to reporters after practice that the ankle injury isn't as bad as he thought. It's not the least bit surprising that McCoy's injury isn't as bad as he might have unintentionally led us to believe, and it sounds like this is just a pain-tolerance thing more than anything now. We fully expect McCoy to be out there on Sunday against the Jaguars, but we'll see how he's listed on the official injury report when it's released tomorrow.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) will not practice today.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott says he's day-to-day and won't be 100% if he plays in Sunday's playoff matchup with Kansas City. Ideally, we'll see him get out there for practice in at least a limited capacity tomorrow or Friday, but McCoy isn't going to need to practice to play—especially in a playoff game.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Chiefs.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports McCoy is expected to be a "close call" to play in the Wild Card matchup for the Bills. The good news for the Bills is they are playing in the Sunday slate of playoff games instead of on Saturday, which gives McCoy another 24 hours to heal up. We fully expect McCoy to be ready to go for the game, as he's played through injuries in the past and is frankly one of those guys that might be slightly dramatic with injuries. Of course it might not be an overdramatic situation in this case, especially if he's dealing with something like a high-ankle sprain, but McCoy will probably want to tough it out and play regardless—the playoffs don't come every year. We'll keep an eye on his practice status throughout the week.
The X-rays on LeSean McCoy were negative.
He's dealing with a sprained ankle, and his status is up in the air for Sunday's Wild Card matchup with the Jaguars. We would expect him to be ready to go for the game, but his practice status will have to be monitored throughout the week leading up to the game.
LeSean McCoy (ankle) did not return to today's game.
Before leaving, McCoy had 11 carries for ten yards and two receptions for 22 yards. McCoy's regular season ends with 286 carries for 1,138 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns along with 59 receptions for 448 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. His yards per carry were a career low, but he's still clearly got some left in the tank. Now he'll hope the Bengals can take out the Ravens so he can get back to the playoffs for the first time since joining Buffalo in 2015.
UPDATE: LeSean McCoy (ankle) is questionable to return against Miami.
McCoy apparently avoided a serious injury and is just dealing with a twisted ankle, which isn't too surprising given his history. Expect McCoy to return to today's game.
LeSean McCoy gets carted off against the Dolphins.
McCoy went down in the third quarter with what appeared to be a lower leg injury, and trainers immediately came over to him. He was carted off, so this could be a serious issue McCoy is dealing with, though he has been known to make dramatic comebacks after it appears he's suffered a potential serious injury, so it wouldn't be surprising if McCoy re-entered the game. We'll update you as more information becomes available.
LeSean McCoy goes for 70 yards as both a runner and receiver in Week 16 loss.
McCoy rushed 17 times for 71 yards and caught five passes for 76 yards. The Pro Bowl back has 276 carries and 57 receptions on the season, and he will look to finish strong in Week 17 against the Dolphins and hope it leads to a wild-card spot in the AFC. Consider him a low-end RB2.
LeSean McCoy crosses the 10,000 rushing yard mark for his career.
McCoy couldn't get a ton going against the Dolphins on the ground, but he scored twice to help get the Bills to 8-6 on the season, and he become the 30th player in NFL history to rush for 10,000 yards in his career. Overall, McCoy had 20 carries for 50 yards and a rushing touchdown along with four receptions for 46 yards and a receiving touchdown in Buffalo's win. He's a high-volume RB1 option for Week 16 against the Patriots.
LeSean McCoy plays well in the snow.
If you'll remember, McCoy had an outstanding game in the snow in 2013 with the Eagles. While these conditions weren't quite as bad, it was still a snow-heavy game in Buffalo against Indianapolis. McCoy is simply a lot faster than almost everyone in the snow, as it's difficult for defenders to keep up with his cuts in the less than ideal conditions. Overall, McCoy had 32 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown, which was the game-winner in overtime. McCoy should get a lot of touches again versus Miami in Week 15.
LeSean McCoy totals 102 yards in loss to the Patriots.
McCoy rushed 15 times for 93 yards and caught two passes for nine yards. New England completely shutdown the passing attack, so it's a little surprising that Shady didn't get more carries than he did, especially since it was only 9-3 at halftime. The Bills should feed McCoy next week against the Colts, so he's back as an RB1 to start the fantasy playoffs.
LeSean McCoy is active against the Patriots.
McCoy didn’t practice all week with a knee injury, but the star back will be out there on Sunday. Fantasy owners can probably expect a full workload, but New England will likely make sure McCoy doesn’t beat them, so Shady is more of an RB2 this week. It’s worth noting that Mike Tolbert is inactive for the Bills.
LeSean McCoy gets 26 touches against the Chiefs.
Kansas City wasn't going to let McCoy beat them on the ground, as he had 22 carries for 49 yards while adding four receptions fo 30 yards. Overall, the 30 yards receiving help him have a decent fantasy day, and the workload remains encouraging. New England might try to take McCoy away in Week 13, but he remains a solid option in fantasy lineups as someone that's going to get fed the ball.
LeSean McCoy scores twice against the Chargers.
McCoy got things started with a first-quarter touchdown, but the offense went south from there until Tyrod Taylor was inserted at quarterback to start the second half. McCoy caught a 12-yard touchdown from Taylor on a corner route in the fourth quarter for his second score of the game. Overall, McCoy had 13 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown on the ground and one reception for 12 yards and a touchdown through the air. He'll be an RB1 against the Chiefs in Week 12.
LeSean McCoy gets 11 touches against New Orleans.
McCoy carried eight times for 49 yards and caught three passes for 11 yards. He had a long run of 36 yards early in the game, but the Bills couldn't get much of anything going after that. The run defense of the Chargers has been very good lately, but look for him to get more work and do more damage against them in Week 11.
Jets shutdown Bills running game in Thursday night victory.
The Jets' front dominated in their convincing AFC East win, limiting LeSean MCCoy to 12 carries for 25 yards while also holding him without a reception (one one target). Aside from McCoy's 13-yard run where he had to bounce it way outside after not getting much blocking up the middle, the veteran back couldn't get anything going in this one. He did leave the game early for a brief time with a groin issue, but he was in there at the end and seems fine. This was McCoy's worst game of the season, but he'll look to bounce back in Week 10 against the Saints.
LeSean McCoy gets 33 touches against the Raiders.
This was certainly McCoy's best game of the season, as he carried 27 times for 151 yards and a touchdown while adding six receptions (on seven targets) for 22 yards. McCoy's 48-yard touchdown came with just over three minutes left and put the Bills up three possessions against the Raiders. All three of McCoy's touchdowns this season have come in the last two games, and he'll look to keep it going against a Jets team he had 110 rushing yards against in Week 1.
LeSean McCoy scores twice in Week 7 win.
McCoy rushed 23 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns, also adding five catches for 31 yards. It was the first time this year that Shady has found the end zone, but he also lost a key fumble, though the Bills were able to overcome it and win 30-27. McCoy is still just averaging 3.4 yards per carry, but he gets a nice matchup with Oakland next Sunday. He's an RB1/RB2.
LeSean McCoy can't get much going in Week 5.
The Bengals did a good job on Shady, limiting him to 63 yards on his 19 carries. McCoy also added six receptions (on nine targets) for 26 yards in the loss to Cincinnati. It's still early, but McCoy has no touchdowns this season and is averaging only 3.2 yards per carry. Maybe he can turn it on when the team comes out of its Week 6 bye, but it's looking like he might not be a great RB1 despite the heavy workload.
LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 76 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
He also caught three passes for 32 yards. The Bills defense was the biggest reason they were able to upset the Falcons on Sunday, but sticking with the running game helped them control the ball some and keep the defense honest. McCoy has struggled in three-straight weeks, and he's yet to find the end zone in 2017, so it might be time to downgrade him to high-end RB2 status. Shady is on pace for just 864 yards on the ground, though he has caught 21 passes for 163 yards to give him a boost in PPR leagues.
LeSean McCoy struggles again in win over the Broncos.
After rushing 12 times for nine yards in last week's loss, McCoy rushed 14 times for just 21 yards against Denver. He is now averaging just 2.9 yards per carry in 2017, though he did catch seven passes for 48 yards on Sunday. Still, he's trending downward heading into next Sunday's game against the Falcons, where he will be more of a low-end RB1.
LeSean McCoy shut down in Week 2 loss.
McCoy rushed 12 times for nine yards and caught six passes for 34 yards in a defensive battle with Carolina. It was a clear step back from a strong performance against the Jets last week, and Shady will get another tough test against Denver next Sunday. The Broncos just shut down Ezekiel Elliott, but McCoy should remain a low-end RB1/high-end RB2.
LeSean McCoy is not listed on the Bills injury report for Week 2.
McCoy took a rest day today at practice because of a sore groin, but McCoy isn't going to miss the game. Perhaps he'd be listed as probable if the NFL still had that designation, but McCoy will be out there on Sunday against the Panthers and will get a heavy workload.
LeSean McCoy (groin) is not practicing today.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott says his workhorse back has "some groin soreness but it's nothing serious." It doesn't sound like McCoy is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Panthers, but he'll likely be listed as questionable. Don't be too alarmed, but it's something to keep an eye on. McCoy should still be locked into a heavy workload and he'll be an obvious RB1 this week.
LeSean McCoy gets 27 touches against the Jets to open the season.
Shady had 22 carries for 110 yards and five receptions for 49 yards in the Week 1 win for the Bills. He looked about as good as he normally does and could've had a bigger day if not for one-yard touchdowns from Mike Tolbert, Charles Clay, and Andre Holmes. Still, McCoy will be among the league leaders in touches and yards for running backs this season, and he's a great RB1 every week in both standard and PPR leagues.
LeSean McCoy had $2.5 million in incentives added to his contract, according to Adam Schefter.
This'll help alleviate some of McCoy's clear issues with the team trading away top receiver Sammy Watkins. Whatever the incentives are, McCoy should hit them if he stays healthy because the Bills are going to give him a ton of touches in 2017. McCoy gets the Jets in Week 1.
LeSean McCoy's workload will be "whatever it takes to win the game."
McCoy is the clear centerpiece of Buffalo's offense, and Bills head coach Sean McDermott just knows giving his star running back the ball will give them a better chance to win. The veteran running back should be one of the favorites to lead the league in touches this season, so he has a very high floor and a ton of upside each and every week. He's obviously a great RB1 against the Jets.
LeSean McCoy held to five yards on eight touches in Bills' third preseason game.
Tyrod Taylor left the game early on with a concussion, so McCoy was the only real threat on Buffalo's offense. He rushed six times for seven yards and caught two passes for negative-two yards. McCoy is worth a first-round pick in all formats, but the Bills are not expected to win many games in 2017, and his workload could be harmed if they play from behind and/or want to evaluate younger guys later in the season should they fall out of contention. It's something to keep in mind on draft day.
LeSean McCoy says the Bills told him they are not trading him.
This isn't a surprise. Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed as much earlier today when he gave a flat "no" to a question about McCoy possibly being traded. When Buffalo traded receiver Sammy Watkins, some thought McCoy might be the next player on the way out, but McCoy isn't going anywhere unless the Bills get an offer that's too good to pass up. He'll be the centerpiece of Buffalo's offense with a chance to lead the league in touches in 2017.
LeSean McCoy carries four times in Bills' second preseason game.
Shady had four carries for 21 yards, along with an 11-yard reception. He looked about as good as you'd expect, and will be an easy RB1 this season. McCoy might lead the league in carries in 2017.
The Bills run game won't be much different this season.
Under new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, the Bills will use a lot of zone blocking schemes, which they did last season. LeSean McCoy said he's watching tape of former All-Pro running back Arian Foster, who Dennison coached in Houston. Dennison says he's blending some of the things the team used so successfully over the past couple of seasons with some of his own concepts. Earlier in the offseason, McCoy already said he expected to catch more passes. He's going to get a lot of touches as a workhorse and there is little doubt he will be a superb RB1 if he remains healthy this season.
Jake Hamilton of buffalobills.com thinks LeSean McCoy could be in for a bigger workload this season.
McCoy had 284 touches last season and averaged a career-high 5.4 yards per carry, and Mike Gillislee is gone after he signed with the Patriots as a restricted free agent. Gillislee had 101 carries for 577 yards and eight touchdowns last season, and McCoy figures to pick up some of those carries. The soon-to-be 29-year-old running back says he still feels "young" and he says it's been hard for the defense to stick with him throughout the spring. As long as he's healthy, McCoy should be a workhorse and easily a top 5-10 RB this season.
LeSean McCoy expects to catch a lot of passes in new offense.
McCoy said with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, the offense will get him the ball through the air. McCoy points to Arian Foster, who played with Dennison as his offensive coordinator with the Texans from 2010-2013. Foster was one of the biggest workhorses in the NFL during that time, including twice going over 600 yards through the air (which McCoy has never done). McCoy is set to be one of the true workhorses in the league, and he should get a bump in PPR leagues.
LeSean McCoy is not at the Bills' voluntary offseason workouts.
McCoy was the only player not in attendance. Head coach Sean McDermott said he talked to McCoy and is not concerned. It's only voluntary, but hopefully McCoy has a good reason for not being there. As one of the best players on the team, it would send a good message to be there with his teammates for the new coach. The Bills get to start their offseason training early because of the hiring of a new head coach (McDermott).
LeSean McCoy carted off with an ankle injury; will not return.
It's a bad end to the season for McCoy, as it is a potentially serious injury for McCoy and he was already ruled out for the game. We'll update you when we get more information on McCoy's injury.
Lesean McCoy continues to produce for Buffalo.
Lesean McCoy helped Buffalo rally back against Miami and force overtime, with another 100+ yard game—his 7th of the season. McCoy finished the day with 24 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown, adding five catches for 17 yards. McCoy will finish 2016 as one of the top RBs in the NFL totaling 1,129 rushing yards, 12 touchdowns, and 44 catches for 333 yards. McCoy keeps proving he can be a workhorse when he's healthy and on the field.
LeSean McCoy runs all over the Browns in Week 15.
McCoy started the game with two straight runs over 20 yards, giving a good indicator that this would be a good day for Shady. He ended up with 19 carries for 153 yards and two touchdowns, along with three catches for 16 yards. McCoy went over 1,000 yards again this season, and will be a high-end RB1 against the Chargers even in a tough matchup.
LeSean McCoy makes impact as receiver in loss.
McCoy led the team in receiving with six catches for 81 yards, and added 12 carries for 27 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The Bills offense was shut down for most of the game, but a late touchdown and the production through the air saved McCoy's fantasy day. He'll be a high-end RB1 next week versus the Browns.
LeSean McCoy nears 200 total yards in loss.
McCoy rushed 17 times for 130 yards and led the Bills in receiving with seven catches for 61 yards. McCoy essentially was the Buffalo offense in this one, and fantasy owners will take the big yardage totals. However, Mike Gillislee appears to have taken over the goal line carries, as he scored twice, both inside the two-yard line. McCoy remains an obvious RB1 for the fantasy playoffs, though.
LeSean McCoy (thumb) rushed 19 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns, adding 31 yards on two catches in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
McCoy looked absolutely fine coming off the thumb injury. He scored a seven-yard touchdown in the first half and opened the second half with a 75-yard rushing score. McCoy will be a solid RB1 for Week 13 against the Raiders in a possible high-scoring affair.
LeSean McCoy (thumb) will play against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Schefter says McCoy will play with a splint. McCoy will be an RB1, but may need to be ticked back slightly in PPR leagues. Despite the thumb injury, keep McCoy in your lineup against the Jaguars 22nd ranked run defense.
LeSean McCoy rushed five times for 33 yards and one touchdown before leaving with a dislocated thumb in Sunday’s win.
McCoy also caught two passes for 12 yards. At least he was able to find the end zone before exiting the game, but Shady leaving definitely hurt fantasy owners gunning for playoff spots. After getting surgery on the thumb, it is believed that McCoy will be able to go for Week 12 against the Jaguars. He will be a RB1 if he plays, but could see less work, especially as a pass-catcher.
