LeSean McCoy suffered a thumb injury Sunday that required surgery, but he should be back on the field for Week 12.
McCoy is a key piece in Buffalo's offense, which has shown an increased reliance on the running game in recent weeks and has reaped the benefits. Buffalo is 4-3 in games in which McCoy has carried the ball 15-plus times in 2016. It faces a Jaguars defense that ranks 22nd in the NFL against the run.
Other injury news we're tracking on Monday:
- Andrew Luck is in the concussion protocol, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Pagano added he thought the hit that led to Luck's concussion came in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Titans. It's uncertain whether Luck will play Thanksgiving Day against the Steelers, but the Colts are planning to start backup Scott Tolzien at quarterback, Rapoport reported.
Earl Thomas suffered a hamstring injury, and Carroll said Monday the All-Pro safety has a first-degree hamstring strain -- an injury that typically comes with a recovery time of 10-14 days. Cornerback DeShawn Shead also suffered a hamstring injury, Carroll said.
- Bears tight end Zach Miller will have surgery on his broken foot and is out for the season, Rapoport reported, per a source.
- Cincinnati's offense suffered a big blow Sunday when wide receiver A.J. Green suffered a strained hamstring. Green won't need to have surgery, Rapoport reported, and will probably miss a few weeks.
- Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) was not present at the start of practice Monday, and remains in the concussion protocol. Coach Ron Rivera added that there isn't a timetable for Kuechly's return. Carolina pass rusher Mario Addison, who leads the team in sacks, was seen in a walking boot Monday after he suffered a foot injury in last Thursday's win over the Saints.
- Eagles coach Doug Pederson announced Monday running back Ryan Mathews is day-to-day after suffering a knee injury. Running back Darren Sproles (ribs) will be held out of practice but should be able to play on next week against the Packers. Offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai is listed as week-to-week with a knee injury and cornerback Leodis McKelvin is now under concussion protocol.
- Browns quarterback Cody Kessler (concussion) isn't expected to play Sunday. Coach Hue Jackson said it's "looking like Josh (McCown) will be the starter this week."
- Bears rookie pass rusher Leonard Floyd is "much better" after he was hospitalized Sunday with a neck injury, coach John Fox said. Floyd has neck soreness and is in the concussion protocol.
- The Falcons placed tight end Jacob Tamme on injured reserve. Tamme underwent season-ending shoulder surgery last week.
