So former Eagle running back LeSean McCoy has been declared out of the Buffalo Bills’ Sunday game against Tennessee, and the team says he may be out for a month!
Looks like the only anatomical part of the whining McCoy’s body that is in good shape is his mouth, which he used after he was traded to demean Eagles coach Chip Kelly.
McCoy told reporters Friday that he has a Grade 2 hamstring pull and that the team told him it’s typically a three- to four-week injury. His status remains uncertain for the Bills’ remaining two games before their bye week: vs. Cincinnati (Oct. 18) and at Jacksonville in London (Oct. 25).
“It’s all about how you feel, how you feel each day, with treatments and rehabs,” McCoy said. “So the injury may say that, but everybody is different. Everybody’s body responds differently. I’m a quick healer, so I should be fine. I doubt it will take four weeks for me to get back.”
McCoy, who told reporters last week that he aggravated his hamstring injury in practice before the Bills’ trip to Miami in Week 3, has not practiced since rushing 11 times for 16 yards in the Bills’ win over the Dolphins.
“I think I just made it worse,” McCoy said Friday. “That’s the mindset: Whether you’re hurt or not, you need to go out there and play. I just feel I won’t help my team out being hurt. I’d rather come back 100 percent and be the player that everybody was expecting instead of out there on one leg. So that’s the truth.”
McCoy led the NFL in rushing for the Eagles in 2013 and was traded in March 2015 for LB Kiko Alonso, who is out with an injury and may return before McCoy does.
