LeSean McCoy only stretches before leaving practice

LeSean McCoy only stretches before leaving practice

Once again, Bortles has to avoid messing up and giving the Bills a chance. That means this game is all about how Leonard Fournette can run the ball, if Bortles will actually make good decisions and just toss the ball away instead of throwing stupid interceptions and how well the defense, one of the league's best, can bottle up Taylor, one of the league's worst. And on Wednesday, the Bills really didn't offer up much more than that. He simply said, "I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on television". "But we're not losing sight of how good he is with the football and how well he has thrown the football". He was carted off the field but returned to practice on a limited basis Friday. According to Elias, they are just the third team since the 1970 merger to accomplish that feat, joining the 1974 Steelers (who won the Super Bowl) and the 2006 Ravens, who lost in the Divisional round of the playoffs. Let's not forget that this is the same LeSean McCoy that tried to fight through a hamstring injury down in Miami past year in October because it was an important game.

X-rays taken at the stadium on Sunday were negative and McCoy was re-evaluated Monday, when no structural damage was detected.

Buffalo is already concerned about McCoy, so the biggest question is whether this was a gradual increase in activity for the injured running back. He showed some burst, vision, and provided a spark for the Bills. They will need to step up if they want to stay in this game early. The Jaguars are a great first test for the Bills seeing as how they will take on a rebuilt team, led by former former Bills coach Doug Marrone. Jordan Mills (ankle) is probable and Shareece Wright (concussion) is questionable. He's quick, reads the play quickly, and can even shed blockers on the way to helping bring down the ball carrier.

McDermott was asked repeatedly about the possibility of not having McCoy on Sunday and didn't hesitate with his response, if in fact that possibility becomes a reality. Buffalo needs at him as close to full strength as possible, and he doesn't need practice reps to prove anything. "We'll pick him up if he's not out there".

Trump faces first physical exam in office
Bush's first exam as president, his doctor noted he enjoyed the occasional cigar, drank diet soda and ran 12 miles a week. The book quotes former advisers and others who paint an unflattering portrait of Trump and his fitness to be president.

We're partying like it's 1999 in this year's playoff field, with the Rams, Bills and Jaguars all appearing for the first time together in almost two decades.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is questionable for Sunday's AFC wild-card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unfortunately, star running back LeSean McCoy might not be able to play. It's likely a position that needs to be upgraded in the offseason. Familiarity is their friend, in this case.

Rookie Head Coach Sean McDermott leads his team to a 9-7 record after one season. At least, he'll pretend not to hear it in a press conference setting. He's now in a contract year, which means Sunday could potentially be his last game on the Jags' sidelines if the team doesn't take care of the Bills. The way he was talking about the Jaguars, he made it sound as though they had no advantages heading into this game. Both have built up the teams in various ways.
