Summary

Right now, LeSean McCoy is the starter, but he may still be in trouble due to an off-season incident in a Philadelphia bar which left two off-duty police officers injured. So there is always the chance he might yet see suspension. That said, if he doesn't, we expect him to put up a good season. He was on his way to that last year before his 2015 was derailed by injury. Despite missing four games, he totaled 895 yards while catching 32 passes for 292 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He shouldn't see his role degrade too much because of Karlos Williams or rookie Jonathan Williams, so as long as he isn't hurt or in jail, he should bounce back to where he was pre-injury. (May 20)

Bills | LeSean McCoy sitting out Friday (Fri Aug 26, 06:07 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Our View: McCoy is fine, but the Bills are being careful with their core pieces after injuries have hit their offensive line and linebackers during camp. McCoy had a bad hamstring injury last summer that affected him into the season, so he's ahead of last year so far.

Bills | LeSean McCoy visits the end zone (Sat Aug 20, 07:21 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was held to no yards on five carries, but he caught four passes for 58 yards - including a 13-yard touchdown - against the New York Giants on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Our View: McCoy is one of the few true feature backs in the league and he's going in the third round. The injuries did pile up last year, but McCoy was running well before going down in December.

Bills | Reggie Bush expected to win No. 2 RB job (Sat Aug 20, 05:51 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush has been considered the favorite to serve as the direct backup for RB LeSean McCoy since the former was signed earlier this month, even before the release of Karlos Williams, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.

Our View: Bush hasn't done anything meaningful on the field for over a year, with only 12 touches last year, so he's not really worth running out to get as a handcuff to McCoy. He'll be on the waiver wire watch list to open the season, but we suspect that he would yield to another back soon enough if he was asked to play a significant number of snaps.
