The Bills didn’t waste any time getting LeSean McCoy’s dislocated left thumb properly back in place. The feature back underwent a surgical procedure on Sunday night and will have a chance to play on Sunday against Jacksonville.

“We’ll see how he progresses through the week,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “It would be big for us (to have him play) obviously. I think right now he’s playing as well as any back in the league. That would be nice if he actually is going to play. That would be great for us.”

McCoy got off to a fast start this past Sunday against Cincinnati averaging more than six and a half yards a carry with a touchdown, but dislocated his thumb late in the first half and didn’t return when the medical staff couldn’t pop his thumb joint back in.

Fantasy Impact:

Ryan would not put a percentage on McCoy’s chances of playing Sunday against the Jaguars, but admitted he was more encouraged.

Bills mindful of RB LeSean McCoy's conditioning

LeSean McCoy did not practice or play last week when the Bills faced the Patriots. This week he practiced on a limited basis. McCoy is good to go in tonight’s game at Seattle, but for offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, there is one particular thing he’s going to be mindful of in his usage of McCoy in Buffalo’s attack.

“Well you have to be conscious of his conditioning because he’s been for a couple of weeks, hasn’t played, hasn’t practiced a lot,” Lynn said. “But he looks good in practice. His stamina, his quickness and just the rest, he’s had two weeks to rest, so I feel confident that he’s going to be able to play and play well, but I have to be cautious of his conditioning.”

Fantasy Impact:

Before his hamstring injury McCoy was averaging 17.3 carries per game. He averaged just over 47 plays per game (47.6). The highest percentage of offensive plays for McCoy came in Week 2 against the Jets (49 of 53 – 92%). The highest number of plays in a game for him was in Week 4 (54 plays). The Bills may ease him back in tonight on top of it not being a great matchup.
