Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy said a “situation” with coach Sean McDermott was the reason McCoy did not start in Sunday’s 24-12 loss to the New England Patriots, but he did not elaborate.
It was the first time McCoy did not start a game in which he played since 2010.
McCoy did not elaborate on when the “situation” happened, but said he and McDermott resolved it.
McDermott said before Sunday’s game at New England that he wanted to get Ford and other young players time on the field, but McCoy scoffed when reporters asked whether he would still be the featured running back.
McCoy ran six times against the Patriots for 9 yards, the fifth time this season McCoy has averaged less than 2.0 yards per carry in a game. McCoy has 488 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in 13 games this season.
LeSean McCoy on his future in Buffalo: "I don't know. I remember Beane saying earlier in the year that they've got plans for me, so we'll see. … I can't worry about that. The only thing I can worry about is who I am. I'm a good player. I love it here. We'll see what happens."

McCoy is washed up, his best days are far behind him, and his days in Buffalo are all but up.
