Bills missing running backs McCoy and Ivory

December 16, 2018 GMT

Bills starting running back LeSean McCoy and his backup, Chris Ivory, are both inactive for Buffalo’s home game against the Detroit Lions.

McCoy is out after hurting his left hamstring and Ivory hurt his left shoulder in a 27-23 loss to the New York Jets last weekend. The injuries leave Buffalo with two healthy running backs in rookies Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford, who was promoted from the practice squad this week.

Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka is active despite nursing a hip injury.


For the Lions, quarterback Matthew Stafford will make his 126th consecutive start despite being listed as questionable due to a back injury. Running back Kerryon Johnson will miss his fourth consecutive game with a knee injury.

Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde is a healthy scratch against Washington, a clear sign his days in Jacksonville are done. The Jags traded a fifth-round pick to Cleveland for Hyde in October. He is due to make $4.75 million in 2019, a salary Jacksonville seems unwilling to pay for a backup.

Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton is active despite missing all three days of practice this week with an injured ankle.
