Bills RB LeSean McCoy said Wednesday that he will decide by Friday or Saturday whether he can play Sunday against the Vikings. "[I'll see] if I can actually go out there and run full tilt, full speed with no pain,” he said. “But it might be some pain. I'll have to deal with it.” McCoy said running with pain is the bigger issue than being tackled after what he estimated to be about 20 carries in a game. He said he would wear protective equipment over his damaged rib cartilage -- which he heard "crack" when center Ryan Groy fell on him Sunday -- if he plays. He was listed as limited in practice Wednesday.
