Teammates continue to stand by McCoy through injury and accusations

Bills running back LeSean McCoy was the focus at practice Wednesday for several reasons. 

First, he showed up in a red non-contact jersey but did go through drills after suffering a rib injury in Sunday's loss against the Chargers.

"I'm worried about running full speed without too much pain," he said. "I can kind of deal with getting hit but it's running constantly with pain."

It's still undetermined if McCoy will be well enough to take on the Vikings, but the Bills captain says if he is out there, those should expect the same type of intensity as usual.

"It's a challenge, if I'm good enough to go out there and compete, and if I'm out there, I'm going to give it 110%. But we'll take this one day at a time, it's only Wednesday. I'll probably make that decision on Saturday [or] Friday, see if I can go out there and run full-tilt full speed with no pain."

Of course, the other big news of the day was the new accusations against McCoy that accuse him of abusing his 6-year-old son. McCoy  denied those allegations, and his teammates are in full support of their running back.

"The world is evil, it really is evil," says offensive lineman Dion Dawkins. "I see Shady with his kid on a daily basis, and those two love each other, and his son is a happy kid and for people to consistently throw stuff out in the air is just crazy."

In addition, McCoy also said on Wednesday he has spoken to both Kim and Terry Pegula, and that they were extremely supportive, and everyone at One Bills Drive has done the same.
