LeSean McCoy had a workload that was monitored over the course of the 2016 season. He averaged 19 touches per game last season between the run and pass game for Buffalo. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said he doesn’t have an idea in mind with respect to McCoy’s workload. He’s more focused on getting McCoy the ball to make plays.
“We're going to make some plays and giving the ball to him when we think he's got some chances. (McCoy’s workload) is not my expertise. I’m trying to move the offense, and certainly he's one of our playmakers on offense.”
When asked if anyone will monitor McCoy’s workload through the course of the season, Dennison pointed to the head coach: “I’m going to let Sean take care of that. Both (head athletic trainer) Shone Gipson and Sean McDermott. Let them take care of that. You know I’m coaching all the guys out there and whatever happens, happens.” The story added whether McCoy's workload is larger this season than it was last season could hinge on the success in finding a dependable and productive backup.
