The Buffalo Bills suffered an injury scare during Tuesday afternoon’s practice, when top offseason acquisition LeSean McCoy was spotted limping off of the field with a leg injury.

It didn’t take long for an update on McCoy’s status.
The star running back was sent for an MRI and, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, has been diagnosed with a strained hamstring.

While the severity of the injury will ultimately determine how long McCoy will miss, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Buffalo shut him down for the remainder of the preseason. Of course, that could mean the Bills would need to add another veteran rusher to the backfield.
In the meantime, McCoy will have to rest and allow his injury the time it needs to heal.
Buffalo kicks off their 2015 season on Sept. 13 against the Indianapolis Colts at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
