Interim head coach Anthony Lynn said after Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Jets that McCoy didn't return due to a high-ankle sprain, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW Buffalo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to his departure from the Bills' final game of the season, McCoy managed five carries for 10 yards and one catch for six yards. While his recovery from the sprain could impact his availability for the fifth Pro Bowl of his career on Jan. 29, he should be fully recovered once the offseason program kicks off in April.

McCoy was forced out of Sunday's season finale agains the Jets with an ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

With McCoy -- who logged five carries for 10 yards prior to his exit -- out for the rest of the game, Mike Gillislee is now in line to handle the bulk of the Bills' Week 17 rushing duties.

McCoy, who sat out practice Wednesday because he was sick, is no longer listed on the Bills' Week 17 injury report.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy is thus on track to suit up Sunday against the Jets and in the process is in line to lead the Bills' Week 17 rushing attack. He'll be working under a new coach (Anthony Lynn) and taking handoffs from EJ Manuel instead of Tyrod Taylor, but McCoy has been healthy and on a roll of late, so he has a chance to finish the season strong, in any context.

McCoy did not participate in Wednesday's practice because he was sick.

EDGE Analysis

We'll see if the veteran is able to get back at it as soon as Thursday, while it'll be worth monitoring anything interim coach Anthony Lynn says about how he'll use his normal starters in a meaningless finale. The team has already pulled Tyrod Taylor out of the game, but there's some salary issues behind that decision, while McCoy is under contract and has some season milestones he can reach.

McCoy is not participating in Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

EDGE Analysis

We'll see if this is just a veteran's day off, as McCoy is seemingly as healthy as he's been all season and is playing like it too, with 130-plus yards rushing in three of his last four games. However, there are a couple of issues for owners playing Week 17 to monitor -- the Bills are out of the playoff chase so Sunday at the Jets is a meaningless game, and they've also fired coach Rex Ryan and could be looking at the finale to evaluate some talent.

McCoy gained 128 yards and scored a touchdown on 24 rushes, while also securing five of six targets for 17 yards in Saturday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy was stellar once again, contributing significantly to a Bills offensive effort that exceed 500 total yards on the day. It was the 28-year-old's fourth 100-yard performance in the last five games, and he scored a rushing touchdown for the third straight week as well. Despite the Bills having been officially eliminated from playoff contention with Saturday's loss, McCoy will try to finish off his standout 2016 campaign with a strong effort against the Jets in Week 17.

McCoy rushed 19 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's tilt with the Browns. He also caught three passes for 16 yards.

EDGE Analysis

It was McCoy's sixth 100-yard rushing game of the season, as the 28-year-old back surpassed 1,000 yards for the fifth time in his career. McCoy also gained his fourth multi-touchdown game and has found pay dirt six times over the last five weeks. He continues to be one of the game's best backs and should find more success in Week 16 against a weak Dolphins run defense.

McCoy gained just 27 yards on 12 carries, but he found the end zone and also racked up six receptions on seven targets for 81 yards during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy's 2.3 yards per carry were the second-worst of his 2016 season thus far, but he now has over 140 receiving yards throughout the past two weeks. He continues to be one of the league's top running backs in terms of fantasy value when he's healthy and he'll have an excellent opportunity to produce next week against the Browns. Due to the Steelers' ability to control the clock in Week 14, McCoy's volume out of the backfield was a bit limited with just 12 carries, but that figures to change in Week 15.

McCoy's teammate Mike Gillislee is now the team's official goal-line back, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn: "Shady is one of the most explosive backs in the league. He can get a lot of his touchdowns from outside the red zone, but Mike is that decisive, no nonsense type runner that you're looking for inside the three, two-yard line. That's his role and everybody in the backfield knows that's his role and he's going to get those touches when we get down there. And Shady is good with that."

EDGE Analysis

This is the one knock on McCoy's value, in that he's been doing great work all season but frequently sits out the final plunge plays of a drive. This won't knock McCoy's overall production too much, as the situation has been going on for a while anyway -- unofficially, at least -- and he does have 10 total touchdowns on the season. Still, it's an issue that some of the league's top fantasy backs don't have to deal with, though in fairness to the Bills, Gillislee has been money on short-yardage plays this season, and why not save McCoy's health if it can be helped?

McCoy ran 17 times for 130 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss at Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy had a solid first half with 50 rushing yards, but ripped off a 54-yard run on the first play of the second half. Tyrod Taylor ended up scoring from 12 yards out on the next play. Meanwhile, Mike Gillislee had eight carries for 49 yards, vulturing a pair of short touchdowns. McCoy left the game in the second half after taking a big hit on a rushing attempt, but returned on the next series and looked fine. As the Raiders rallied in the second half, he was used more as a receiver, including a nifty one-handed catch on a 17-yard reception. Next up for McCoy will be the Steelers at home.
