Rex Ryan informed media immediately after practice Wednesday that LeSean McCoy suffered a hamstring injury and did not finish the workout. 

The Bills head coach was unsure of McCoy’s status for Sunday. 

“(McCoy) was tight in the hamstring,” Ryan said. “We’ll see… what happens with a medical evaluation and all that.”

On the possibility of McCoy being out for the game in Miami, Ryan said “We’ll see how he comes back.”

Tyrod Taylor said he noticed McCoy taking decreased reps at practice, but not when the injury happened. 

If McCoy can’t play Sunday in Miami, the Bills will have to go with Mike Gillislee, Reggie Bush and rookie Jonathan Williams at running back. 

Gillislee would likely get the most carries. He’s shown flashes of potential as a workhorse back in the last two seasons. 

“We feel good about the guys we have,” Ryan said. “But, that’s assuming (McCoy) won’t play. We’ll see how it goes.”

It’s also very possible the Bills are being cautious with McCoy. A hamstring injury cut short his preseason last year and hampered him during the season. 

Though McCoy was still very good in 2015, there has been a noticeable difference in his abilities this season.
