McCoy totaled 110 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries and secured three of four targets for six yards in Sunday's 33-18 victory over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran back turned in a throwback performance, his best of the young season by far. McCoy had trudged through a pair of outings over the first two weeks where he'd averaged less than four yards per carry, but exploded for a 6.5 YPC against a normally stingy Cardinals front. The former Pittsburgh Panther now has three touchdowns on the ground over the first three games and has encouragingly remained involved in the passing game, despite an absence of big plays through the air to date. He'll look to keep the momentum going when he and the Bills travel to Foxboro to tangle with the Patriots in Week 4.

McCoy totaled 59 yards on 15 carries and brought in four of five targets for 31 yards in Thursday's 37-31 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy's stat line was very similar to the one he produced in Week 1 versus the Ravens, with the veteran tallying just one less carry and equaling his Week 1 reception total. He did find a bit more success through the air in terms of receiving yardage, but never did get into a complete rhythm due to a game flow that dicated more emphasis an air attack in the second half. McCoy has seen his involvement on the ground somewhat capped over the first two weeks, but should certainly see a heavier workload in games where the Bills aren't in a trail position in the second half.

McCoy rushed 16 times for 58 yards and a touchdown, and hauled in all four of his targets for 12 more in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy found pay dirt on a critical fourth-down carry from the one-yard line in the first half, making up for an otherwise lackluster performance. He got all but three of the carries among Bills running backs, indicating that the eighth-year pro has re-established himself as the bell cow in Buffalo. That's a valuable role given coach Rex Ryan's propensity for running the football.

McCoy feels much healthier entering 2016 than he did prior to last season, when his hamstring was a constant bother, BuffaloBills.com reports. Says the veteran, "This first game means a lot to me. Just to be healthy and ready to roll. Last year I was battling so much with injuries and everything and trying to get healthy. There are no excuses. I'm ready to go. I feel like I'm 100 percent."

EDGE Analysis

We've seen McCoy slip in some drafts based on his injury-marred numbers in 2015, plus his offseason legal troubles - he was later cleared - and age seem to be making him one of those guys that draws a few wise-guy comments when he gets picked in leagues. But looking past that, McCoy looked agile as ever last season during games when he was close to full health, plays for what could be the league's best run offense, and doesn't have much in the way of competition. Translation: There's value to be had here if the rest of you league turns its nose up at McCoy.

McCoy (personal) is at Tuesday's practice, WGR 550's John Murphy reports.

EDGE Analysis

Excused from Tuesday's practice for personal reasons, McCoy actually showed up before the session ended. With his Week 1 availability no longer in any question, the 28-year-old running back figures to handle a hefty workload against the Ravens, with his role likely including a good portion of the snaps on passing downs. Mike GIllislee and Reggie Bush could poach a few touches apiece, but neither presents much of a threat to McCoy's workload.

McCoy is excused from Tuesday's practice for personal reasons, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

EDGE Analysis

With five days remaining until the Bills kick off their season in Baltimore, this probably won't be anything to worry about. However, nothing is known about the situation at this time, so there may be cause for concern if McCoy isn't back at practice by Thursday or Friday. Assuming he's available, the 28-year-old running back should get plenty of touches against a Baltimore defense that enters Week 1 with a lot of uncertainty at all three levels. Mike Gillislee and Reggie Bush figure to open the season as McCoy's backups, with fifth-round rookie Jonathan Williams perhaps eventually having a shot to mix in.

McCoy won't take the field for Thursday's preseason game in Detroit, the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With his status as the Bills' No. 1 running back evident, McCoy won't risk suffering an unnecessary injury. If he can avoid DNPs on game day this season, he shouldn't have much issue reaching 1,000 yards rushing for the fifth time in the last seven campaigns.

McCoy will not play in Friday's preseason game against Washington, the Bills' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

With no injury reported, the Bills are likely just sitting McCoy in order to get a better look at their candidates for backup running back jobs. Following the recent release of Karlos Williams (suspension), the Bills will likely start either Mike Gillislee (concussion), Reggie Bush or Jonathan Williams in Friday's game, though James Wilder and Dan Herron could also mix in with the first-team offense.

McCoy (ankle) finished with zero yards on five carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, but he more than made up for it by catch four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

Given that he's played in the first two preseason games, McCoy seems to have moved beyond the ankle issue that troubled him during the offseason. Already primed to handle a heavy workload that includes passing downs, McCoy could get some extra touches while Karlos Williams serves a four-game suspension to start the season.

McCoy (ankle) got just two touches in Saturday's preseason opener against the Colts, rushing once for nine yards while catching his lone target for two.

EDGE Analysis

There was no reason for the Bills to push their top running back, as he doesn't need many reps to get ready for an effective regular season. Expect McCoy's workload to ramp up as the preseason progresses.
