LeSean McCoy (hamstring) returns to Bills practice

Will Bills fans see LeSean McCoy on Sunday against the New England Patriots?

Buffalo's workhorse running back returned to the field for Friday's practice and didn't "seem at all limited" in the portion of team drills open to the media, per Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News. The team, though, later listed McCoy as questionable.

The seventh-year back was seen running routes after leaving Thursday's session early with hamstring soreness. Coach Rex Ryan said after practice that he was "cautiously optimistic" that Shady would be on the field against the Patriots.

McCoy has battled the tweaked hamstring for over a month, looking like a lesser version of himself last Sunday against the Colts. His 41 yards on the ground were matched by Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, with rookie runner Karlos Williams leading the team with 55 yards off six totes.

This isn't the way Buffalo planned it, but hamstring injuries can't be rushed. We'll find out Sunday if McCoy is back in form for an upstart squad looking to make a statement in the AFC East.
