Injuries: Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) day-to-day

The status of LeSean McCoy remains up in the air heading into Sunday's tilt versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that the running back is "day-to-day" with a sprained ankle suffered in Sunday's victory. McCoy will not practice Wednesday.

McCoy, the centerpiece of the Bills' offense, will receive treatment throughout the week, but will not be fully healthy even if he's able to get on the field Sunday.

The Bills ended a 17-year playoff drought this season. Buffalo could be one-and-done if McCoy, its best offensive player, is standing on the sideline Sunday.

Here are the other injuries worth monitoring from Wednesday:

1. Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (knee) and wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle/ribs) were limited participants.

2. Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess (shoulder) did not practice. Running back Jonathan Stewart (back) was a limited participant. Safety Kurt Coleman (ankle) and guard Trai Turner (concussion) were full participants.

3. Los Angeles Rams linebacker Mark Barron (Achilles) and safety Blake Countess (concussion) were limited in practice. Wideouts Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) and Mike Thomas (ankle) did not practice.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee (ankle), who's been sidelined since Week 15, did not practice.

5. The Kansas City Chiefs placed cornerback Phillip Gaines on injured reserve and signed defensive tackle Stefan Charles in a corresponding move. Gaines suffered an elbow injury in last Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos and did not practice on Tuesday.
