LeSean McCoy will battle to get ready for the Buffalo Bills first playoff game of since Jan. 8, 2000.

The running back was carted off in the third quarter of the Week 17 win over the Miami Dolphins with a sprained ankle.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said McCoy has a chance to play in Sunday's playoff game as he continues to recover from the injury. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport noted McCoy could be a little gimpy and not be 100 percent if he's able to give it a go.

The 29-year-old running back will get round-the-clock treatment on the ankle injury in hopes to get on the field Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville. Rapoport noted that playing in the Sunday game -- as opposed to the Saturday matchup -- helps McCoy's chances of returning for the postseason.

Here are other injuries we're tracking Monday:

1. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton, who is considered a top backup quarterback target for free agency, has been playing without an ACL for years, Rapoport reported. Stanton, however, is not expected to undergo surgery to repair the knee, Rapoport adds.

2. Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he thinks Jonathan Stewart will be fine after he was held out of Sunday's game because of a back injury. Rivera said Stewart told him he feels better.
