McDermott: Injured McCoy not practicing Wednesday, but wants to play Sunday

McDermott: Injured McCoy not practicing Wednesday, but wants to play Sunday

The 1999 season was also the last time the Bills played in any playoff game, and that particular game happened to be the contest that ended up going down in National Football League history as the "Music City Miracle", the last-second win by the Tennessee Titans on their way to the Super Bowl XXXIV. It thrives off everyone picking against us. We're just going to continue to grow, continue to embrace that mindset.

"People are picking against us". There's a lot we can improve on as a team, and in his case, no different. "So I like our chances".

McCoy suffered an ankle injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins.

"He's a fierce competitor", McDermott said. McDermott declined to speculate whether McCoy will be able to practice at all this week. Certainly the decisions the team made in the preseason (trading Sammy Watkins) and midseason (starting Nathan Peterman) would bear that out.

McCoy accounted for 32.7 percent of the Bills' total yards from scrimmage this season.

The visitor is 5-1 against the spread in the past six meetings between these teams, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, giving the Bills a solid shot to end their eight-game road losing streak during the month of January.

"Of course, Shady is a special playmaker". Previous year against Miami, he played on a sore hamstring and he said, "I didn't do well at all".

"But at the same time, you can't use it as an excuse". "We're obviously excited about having him back".

Former Club Fail In Late Bid For Manchester United-Bound Star
Manchester United have been linked with Brazilian global and PSG star Lucas Moura since the start of the winter transfer window. Blessed with huge potential, Lucas Moura could certainly add an extra dimension to the slightly jaded Manchester United attack.

Buffalo lacks depth at the position a week after backup Travaris Cadet broke his ankle.

If McCoy has to sit out, Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy will likely receive the bulk of the carries.

The two teams have faced off five times in the last six seasons with the Bills holding a 3-2 edge since 2012.

Jacksonville finally lived up to its potential this season under first-year head coach Doug Marrone, who has one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. He understands he can't alone replace McCoy. "I know my body, I know myself, especially the way I play is more cutting and running".

On Tuesday, the Bills added insurance by signing running back Aaron Green to their practice squad. Buffalo is 0-3 since.

The Jaguars set the table by pounding teams with the run first and foremost, trying to get a lead and let their defense help produce turnovers and points (they have seven defensive TD's this season). McCoy, above all else, wants to empty to tank to try and win a championship - and really getting his first win in the playoffs would certainly be a step in the right direction. They need to impose their will on Buffalo.

For the first time in 18 years, the Buffalo Bills are playoff-bound.

Buffalo finished sixth in yards rushing and faces a Jaguars defense that ranked second in yards allowed, but was inconsistent against the run. McCoy was a great deal of the Bills offense with more than 1,130 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns.
