LeSean McCoy may not be quite 100 percent yet, but he's close enough to look like his old self again. Buffalo's feature back averaged more than five yards a carry Sunday and had his trademark elusiveness on display.
He was completely stuck with the hole in front of him being closed quickly by an oncoming linebacker. Making matters worse the Bills were buried deep in their own territory in the first half. Instead of lowering his head and taking a no gain or a loss on the carry, LeSean McCoy threw his forward momentum into reverse, jump cut to his right and burst to the right edge where he found enough daylight to gain seven yards.
These are the ‘something out of nothing plays’ that have earned McCoy the reputation of being one of the most elusive backs in the league. To see it in action Sunday was an encouraging sign for a Bills rushing attack that sorely needs his game breaking ability.
“Obviously he’s a huge weapon we’ve been certainly missing him,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “To get him back out there that was impressive with 90 yards rushing. That’s great to see him out there.”
