RB McCoy and DL Dareus Both Injured in Friday Practice; Both Questionable for Sunday at Rams

LeSean McCoy

Bills star running back LeSean McCoy and defensive lineman Marcell Dareus both suffered injuries in practice Friday and have been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

McCoy injured his hand in practice while Dareus, who is returning from a four-game suspension, injured his hamstring.

Bills coach Rex Ryan declined to elaborate on either injury, simply smiling and replying “questionable” when asked whether McCoy would play Sunday.

McCoy, however, said during an interview later Friday with ESPN’s SportsCenter that he jammed his hand but vowed that he “won’t miss the game.” McCoy also described the injury as “something small” and said, “I’ll be fine.”

Dareus remains on the exempt list, meaning the Bills have until 4 p.m. ET Saturday to activate him to their 53-man roster if they want him to play against the Rams. Otherwise, Buffalo has until Monday afternoon to clear a roster spot for Dareus.

“We’ll see how it is,” Ryan said of Dareus’ injury. “We’ll find out later how he responds.”
