Rex Ryan: McCoy 'ready to roll' for opener

Sep 9, 2015 2:10 PM by Jared Dubin - CBS Sports

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy missed the last few weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury, but according to head coach Rex Ryan, McCoy is back in full practice on Wednesday.

It was only a week ago that Rex indicated he didn't know whether McCoy would be ready for Week 1, but it appears the Bills will indeed have their biggest offseason acquisition "ready to roll" for the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

McCoy will likely be counted on to provide much of the spark for Buffalo's offense this season. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor hasn't started a game since he was at Virginia Tech, offensive coordinator Greg Roman's power scheme leans heavily on the running back, and the Bills did not trade a young defensive stud for McCoy, give him a contract extension and cut his backup because they weren't planning on giving him the ball a lot.

The Bills will certainly need McCoy to deliver in their first game, given the expected explosiveness of the Indianapolis offense Andrew Luck brings to town. The Colts don't exactly have the best run defense in the world, but it may still be tough sledding for McCoy behind an offensive line that struggled badly last season.
