LeSean McCoy, RB BUF
McCoy tried to play on an injured hamstring, but unfortunately aggravated it and was removed from the game. Hamstring injuries can be tricky. It takes time to heal and scar tissue can build up. Depending on the extent of injury, hamstring strains can be multi-week injuries, especially when it is an aggravation. Expectations were high for Mike Gillislee, but he was a disappointment (five carries for 20 yards). If McCoy misses games, perhaps rookie Jonathan Williams may get a shot.
