Bills sweating on stricken McCoy

Buffalo are hopeful that running back LeSean McCoy will be able to feature in the NFL play-offs, with the Bills having ended a post-season drought dating back to 1999.

McCoy left the game against the Miami Dolphins due to an injury to his right ankle, with initial reports suggesting that X-rays had ruled out a break.

We're nowhere near where we need to be, but we are very grateful for this opportunity.

Sean McDermott

However, head coach Sean McDermott is still waiting anxiously to find out whether his player will be available for the play-off clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field.

He told reporters: "At this point he's still being evaluated. I think we'll know something in the next 24 to 48 hours."

Meanwhile, McDermott was full of praise for his roster, who could only watch on as the Cincinnati Bengals scored late on to defeat Baltimore and send the Ravens hurtling out of the play-off shake-up.

He added: "It's been a long time coming. From day one no-one gave them the chance.

"We're nowhere near where we need to be, but we are very grateful for this opportunity. It's well-earned and so my hat goes off to everyone involved."

The Bills are the lowest seed in the AFC play-offs, meaning they will be on the road throughout the post-season.

The other AFC first round match-up sees the Kansas City Chiefs play host to the Tennessee Titans, with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots waiting in round two.

Buffalo can be backed at 1213.00 to win the AFC Championship, with the Steelers priced at 1213.00 and the Jaguars 4.33.
