Bills RB LeSean McCoy remain in concussion protocol

Since being placed under concussion protocol after Sunday’s 37-5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy has been working his way through the procedure.

Despite his continued participation in practice, McCoy has continued to carry the designation of being in the concussion protocol through Saturday ahead of Monday’s matchup against the New England Patriots, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

Bills running back LeSean McCoy is still in the concussion protocol, and his status for Monday night’s game against the Patriots remains unclear.

Although this designation has remained, there is still time for McCoy to prove that he can be cleared from the protocol. His participation in practice on a limited basis should be a positive sign that he may be back on the field against the Patriots.

It hasn’t been the most encouraging start to begin the year as he has recorded 244 rushing yards and zero touchdowns along with 13 receptions for 85 receiving yards. He did experience a notable uptick in production over the last couple of games prior to Week 7 action against the Colts as he posted back-to-back outings with more than 75 rushing yards, including his first 100 total scrimmage yard performance.

If he’s able to play against the Patriots, the Bills will lean on him in a significant capacity as he is their best playmaker and centerpiece of the offense over the last couple of years. This could set the table for another productive performance for McCoy in what will be a tough challenge ahead.
