Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is expected to play in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 13 despite suffering a hamstring injury Tuesday, according to ESPN. McCoy had an MRI on Tuesday to help determine the severity of the injury, and while the results have not been revealed by the team, the early indications are that the setback that forced him out of practice will not hold him out for any regular-season games. He is expected to carry a heavy load this season after being acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this year in exchange for star linebacker Kiko Alonso, with the aging Fred Jackson expected to serve as his primary backup. Bryce Brown, Boobie Dixon and rookie Karlos Williams are also on the roster and would see an increase in practice reps if McCoy misses any meaningful time.

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said he does not expect running back LeSean McCoy to be sidelined long because of a toe injury, according to the team's official website. McCoy has been limited in practice this week due to soreness and swelling in his toe, but he suggested that he will be available for the team's intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday. "He’s just had a little toe … it’s not turf toe or anything like that," Ryan told ESPN on Wednesday. "But that’s kind of a soreness/swelling type thing. It’s not something that’s really going to hamper him in the near future. I think he will be [ready for Saturday]. But obviously that can change. But the main thing is not that he plays the scrimmage; the main thing is that he’s ready to roll when there are live bullets. But it would be good to get him in there, for sure."

McCoy (neck) participated fully in Wednesday's OTA, ESPN.com reports.

After failing to practice last week due to a "slight" neck injury, he returned just one day removed from fellow RB Fred Jackson revealing that the Bulls intend to hand McCoy 300-plus carries in 2015, which he accomplished in two seasons under coach Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. Despite what the masses deemed a subpar final year with the Eagles, McCoy averaged 4.23 YPC after scampering for a collective 4.76 clip across his first five campaigns. The disappointment regarded his waning effectiveness as a receiver, as he followed 40-plus receptions in each of his initial years with 28 catches for 155 yards and no scores in 2014. With all three downs seemingly guaranteed in the fall, McCoy seems primed for a bounce-back season.

Fellow Bills running back Fred Jackson said the team plans to give McCoy (neck) over 300 carries this season, WGR 550 reports. "I don't know exactly what my role is going to be," Jackson said. "They say that they want Shady (McCoy) to get 300-plus carries next year. So that's a guy you're feeding the ball all the time. So I''ll be ready when my number is called."

McCoy didn't quite look like his old self in his final season running behind a strong offensive line in Philadelphia, but the Bills are clearly banking on a bounce back, even while dealing with some serious questions about their own o-line. Working in his favor, McCoy won't turn 27 until July, and the Bills view him as the offensive centerpiece of a roster that also includes Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, Charles Clay and Fred Jackson. While some combination of Jackson, Bryce Brown, Karlos Williams and Anthony Dixon figure to be involved, McCoy is the clear-cut lead back and should also see plenty of third-down work. Volume is seemingly the least of McCoy's concerns.

As the Bills proceed with their OTAs, McCoy is dealing with what Joe Buscaglia of wkbw.com refers to as a slight neck ailment.

Meanwhile, ESPN's Mike Rodak confirmed via coach Rex Ryan that McCoy's neck issue isn't anything serious. The running back, who was acquired from the Eagles back in March, is slated to head a Buffalo backfield that also rosters Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown, Anthony Dixon and Karlos Williams.
