A source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that McCoy is day-to-day after his MRI on Monday showed a hamstring strain.

EDGE Analysis

The disappointing running back's availability for Sunday's game against the Lions will be determined throughout the week. Considering McCoy -- normally a fantasy superstar -- has eclipsed the 100-yard mark just once this season and has been kept out of the end zone 11 out of 12 games, a number of his owners are probably out of contention. The next round of news should come with Wednesday's practice report.

McCoy is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy has shown a proclivity to play through significant injuries in the past, so the fact that he was unable to return to Sunday's contest after exiting following the Bills' first drive is somewhat concerning. In any case, the MRI should provide an official word on McCoy's injury, with a recovery timeline likely to be handed down along with it. With McCoy limited to just nine plays in the loss to the Jets, Chris Ivory acted as the Bills' primary running back and finished the day with 42 yards on 12 carries.

McCoy (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy turned in a dud for those that rolled with him in the fantasy playoffs, generating just one yard on his two carries before departing after the Bills' opening drive. Chris Ivory will serve as the Bills' primary option out of the backfield for the rest of the contest. The team should shed more light on the extent of McCoy's injury after the contest and reveal whether or not he'll require an MRI.

McCoy was removed from Sunday's game against the Jets with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy likely sustained the injury at some point during Buffalo's opening possession, as the Bills went with Chris Ivory as their primary running back on their subsequent two drives. If McCoy fails to return to the game before the end of the second quarter, the Bills should provide an update on his outlook for the rest of the contest coming out of halftime.

McCoy rushed 15 times for 52 yards and brought in all four of his targets for 12 yards in the Bills' 21-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy saw quarterback Josh Allen do a might convincing impersonation of a lead back with a team-high 135 rushing yards, while he generally found much tougher sledding. However, McCoy was able to work his way to a serviceable rushing yardage total with an 18-yard scamper and also tied for the team lead in receptions. The veteran back has encouragingly logged double-digit carries in five consecutive games, although the Bills offensive line's run-blocking struggles haven't allowed him to parlay that into much production except for a 113-yard outburst versus the Jets in Week 10. He'll look to improve his numbers in a rematch against Gang Green in Week 14.

McCoy ran for 46 yards on 17 carries and added a seven-yard catch during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Bills fans were excited to see what their rookie quarterback, Josh Allen, could do, but McCoy is probably wondering whether Matt Barkley can make a guest appearance or two. After running for 113 yards with Barkley in the lineup last week, McCoy came back down to earth in a winning effort against the Jaguars as Allen led the team in rushing. The veteran is averaging just 2.7 yards per carry over his last five outings, but faces a favorable matchup against the Dolphins next Sunday as Miami has given up 4.8 yards per carry, among the worst in the league this season.

McCoy rushed 26 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns while catching his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 41-10 blowout win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The game script finally favored McCoy, as the entire Bills offense came alive under the direction of Matt Barkley. McCoy capped a two-play opening drive with a 28-yard rushing score and backed his way into the end zone from one yard out in the second quarter. Owners hoping this is the beginning of a late-season scoring outburst will have to wait to find out, as Buffalo's on bye in Week 11.

McCoy played only 37 of the Bills' 91 offensive snaps (41 percent) in Sunday's 41-9 loss to the Bears, finishing with 10 carries for 10 yards and four receptions for 19 yards on four targets.

EDGE Analysis

According to Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com, McCoy's 41 percent snap share was his lowest mark in any game in which he's exited a contest with his health intact. Considering the Bills were facing a 28-0 deficit at halftime, it's not too surprising McCoy's workload was limited, as Marcus Murphy handled most of the snaps in garbage time when top backup Chris Ivory (shoulder) was pulled in the fourth quarter. McCoy seems to have moved past the cracked rib cartilage that sidelined in Week 3 as well as the concussion that threatened his status for Week 8, but the Bills' porous offensive line and anemic quarterback play have been significant drags on his fantasy value. The 30-year-old has managed just 24 yards on 24 carries over the last three games, plunging his season yards-per-carry average to a career-worst 3.1

EDGE Analysis

McCoy remains the most talented player on Buffalo's offense, but no member of the group can be trusted in fantasy, especially with interception machine Nathan Peterman under center. The veteran running back has been bottled up on the ground of late, with 24 yards on 24 carries in his past three appearances. McCoy's still looking for his first touchdown of the season ahead of a Week 10 meeting with the Jets.

General manager Brandon Beane told Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News that McCoy is "definitely" part of the Bills' 2019 plans. "LeSean is still a very good player in this league. Our offense is not where we want it, but LeSean is still playing well," Beane said. "He's a talented player. We like what he brings, to the point we'll have him back in 2019."

EDGE Analysis

McCoy is averaging a career-low 3.4 yards per carry and has yet to score a touchdown this season, but the Bills believe the six-time Pro Bowler is still a viable lead back even though he's now on the wrong side of 30 years old. Given his place on the aging curve along with the 2-6 Bills' status as a non-contender, there was some thought the team might exploring trading McCoy prior to Tuesday's deadline, but no advanced talks emerged despite several teams expressing interest, per Jeff Darlington of ESPN. The Bills could more seriously entertaining moving McCoy -- who will carry a $9 million cap hit in 2019, the final year of his contract -- if they remain firmly out of the mix for a playoff spot at the same point next season.
