A source with knowledge of the situation says Bills running back LeSean McCoy suffered a “mild to moderate” hamstring strain Wednesday at practice and that the team is still hoping to have him available Sunday at Miami, but his status will most likely remain uncertain for at least the next couple of days.

 

Head coach Rex Ryan told the media that McCoy left practice early with “tightness” in his hamstring, but was unable to give further details on the injury.

 

“We’ll see what happens with our medical evaluation,” Ryan said. “I’m not going to look into it, but we’ll see how he comes back. We feel good about the guys we do have, but that’s assuming he won’t play, so we’ll see how it goes.”

 

Several Bills players didn’t even know their star back had left the session early when asked about it in the locker room afterward.

 

McCoy is currently second in the NFL with 587 rushing yards and with a 5.64 yards per carry average.

 

The Dolphins are 31st in the league stopping the run, giving up 147 yards per contest.
