Despite injuring his hamstring Tuesday, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is expected to be ready for the team's regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The 27-year-old McCoy strained his hamstring in training camp Tuesday and was set to undergo an MRI to determine its extent.
Bills coach Rex Ryan said McCoy's hamstring was intact and that no separation from the bone occurred.
We were already avoiding McCoy at his current price, and this hamstring injury only further dissuades us from drafting him in the 2nd round. Sure, McCoy is in a run-heavy system, so carries shouldn’t be a problem, but the Buffalo offense isn’t likely to be as efficient as Chip Kelly’s offense in Philadelphia. Throw in an offensive coordinator (Greg Roman) who isn’t known for utilizing his running backs in the passing game and it’s likely that McCoy’s red zone chances and targets will both decrease in 2015. We would assume Fred Jackson would be the main beneficiary if McCoy misses any games, but he's dealing with a hamstring injury of his own.
