McCoy, previously a game-time decision, is not playing Sunday as Rapoport tweeted, "He's out, not quite ready to go."
McCoy was limited in Thursday and Friday's practice after sitting out on Wednesday, while Ivory practiced in full all week. Both players were officially given the questionable tag by the team ahead of Sunday's game. Should McCoy and Ivory not suit up, third-year running back Marcus Murphy will get the start, but with little to no depth behind him.
For McCoy, the latest injury adds to what has been a disappointing year for the 30-year old, who notched his sixth season going over 1,000 yards last year. Yet, even with McCoy and Ivory out, the Bills will have their leading rusher on the field against the Lions -- rookie QB Josh Allen -- who leads the pack with 490 yards on the ground.
Here are other injuries we are monitoring on Sunday morning:
- Although he's not expected to play tonight, Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (ankle) is likely to return next week road game in new Orleans.
