Report: Bills worried ‘Shady’ McCoy will miss Week 1

Updated
FILE - In this March 10, 2015, file photo, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy speaks to the media during a press conference in Orchard Park, N.Y. Bills coach Rex Ryan has no intention of putting "a muzzle" on his players. And that includes running back LeSean McCoy for questioning the motivations of his former coach, Chip Kelly. Ryan responded Wednesday, May 6, 2015, after McCoy created a stir for telling ESPN The Magazine that "there's a reason (Kelly) got rid of all the black players" in Philadelphia.

McCoy suffered a left hamstring injury during practice on August 18 and a source told Anderson that McCoy's MRI showed a "small tear" in his hamstring.
