LeSean McCoy’s status for the postseason remains uncertain.
The Bills running back is “day-to-day” with a right ankle sprain suffered in Sunday’s win over the Dolphins, coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday.
McCoy was carted off the field in the third quarter of the Bills’ victory after getting wrapped up by Dolphins linebacker Chase Allen on a 3-yard run up the middle. McCoy immediately ripped off his helmet and was pounding the turf at Hard Rock Stadium as trainers ran out to examine him, though X-rays later were negative.
The ninth-year rusher will receive treatment this week but won’t practice Wednesday and isn’t expected to be fully healthy by Sunday for the team’s first playoff game since 1999. Still, he is expected to be a game-time decision.
McCoy, 29, finished the regular season fourth in the league with 1,138 rushing yards on 287 attempts. He also scored six touchdowns rushing and two receiving.
Buffalo will travel to Jacksonville for a 1:05 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday in the AFC wild-card round.
