McCoy left the Week 2 game with a rib injury
Police are investigating a home invasion at a home owned by McCoy. Attorneys for the victim released a statement that said a male assailant entered the home without signs of forced entry and demanded items of jewelry that she had received from McCoy. The NFL is reviewing the matter and it could affect his status for the 2018 season.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): McCoy left the Week 2 game with a rib injury but might not miss any time. He'll still be missing from our lineups no matter his status against the Vikings.

General News (Wed Sep 19): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

General News (Mon Sep 17): has been diagnosed with cracked rib cartilage and will likely be listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, McCoy has suffered the injury before and is not expected more than one game - if that.

Week 3: at Minnesota Vikings

All RB vs MIN

FBG says: Bad matchup. With LeSean McCoy in the backfield, the Bills boast a run game that's at least dynamic and respectable. But when McCoy can't suit up - and questionable for Week 3 - there's little to like here. In that situation, Marcus Murphy and Chris Ivory would share lead duties. Murphy is a former seventh-round kick returner with 10 career rushes, while Ivory is 30 and has looked stuck in molasses since 2016. Couple that sheer dearth of talent with a shoddy front line and a front seven able to tee off on the gaps, and this may be Week 3's worst running situation. Even if McCoy can suit up, there's little reason to expect much room for the 30-year-old. The Vikings run defense isn't a flawless unit, but it's one of the league's most brutal matchups. With a trio of strong run-stuffing linemen and plenty of athleticism behind, this is rarely a fun unit to face. Dating back to the start of last year, the Vikings have allowed only 5 individual runners to reach 60 yards. Sheldon Richardson and Linval Joseph form a wall up front that allows Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr to attack the gaps and the edges. Joseph especially has long been underrated as a table-setter.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs LAC (9 / 39 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec)

LeSean McCoy had a better day than week one, but still struggled against the Chargers and was forced to leave the game with a rib injury. He saw a total of 13 touches for 68 yards despite limited usage in the second half. McCoy looked quick and elusive on two perimeter runs but was unable to get high leverage usage. McCoy was used in the quick passing game on some flat routes on early downs where he was able to get positive momentum for the offense. The Buffalo offense only saw one goal line carry and it was Chris Ivory not McCoy who was called upon.

2018 Week 1 vs BAL (7 / 22 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)

McCoy got very little opportunity to run with no extended drives in the first half for Buffalo. The lack of success created second and long opportunities that limited McCoy's opportunity. He did manage a vintage McCoy run, cutting back across the formation for an 11-yard gain, showing his speed and elusiveness. There should be better days ahead for McCoy.
