LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be ready for Week 1

LeSean McCoy will return in time for the football games that matter.

Despite Tuesday's hamstring injury, the Buffalo Bills' lead running back will be ready to suit up against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1, a source informed of McCoy's MRI results told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

McCoy strained his hamstring during an evening joint practice with the Cleveland Browns. He limped off the field during the session, leaving Buffalo paper thin in the backfield.

Rookie Karlos Williams -- a leader for the No. 2 role -- is out multiple weeks after undergoing what Bills coach Rex Ryan called a "sensitive" procedure. Veterans Fred Jackson (hamstring), Boobie Dixon (calf) and Bryce Brown (hamstring) are also sidelined, leaving non-household names Bronson Hill and Ricky Seale to carry the rock.

With McCoy a candidate to lead the AFC in carries this season, the Bills aren't going to rush him back into action. It's bubble-wrap time until September dawns.
