ORCHARD PARK Thurman Thomas Jerseys 2019 , N.Y. (AP)Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is questionable for Sunday’s AFC wild-card playoff game against the Jacksonville
Jaguars. McCoy suffered a right ankle injury in Sunday’s 22-16 win over the
Miami Dolphins. He was carted off the field but returned to practice on a
limited basis Friday. On Thursday, McCoy said that he was feeling ”a lot better”
but didn’t want to make any guarantees about playing. He declined to speak with
reporters on Friday. McCoy is Buffalo’s best and most consistent offensive
playmaker with 1,138 rushing yards and six touchdowns in the regular season. He
passed the 10,000-yard rushing mark for his career this year. Buffalo has little
experienced depth behind McCoy at running back. Marcus Murphy was promoted from
the practice squad for Buffalo’s Week 17 game against Miami and performed well
with 41 yards on seven carries; Murphy had just one carry in his career before
Sunday. Buffalo also has veteran fullback/running back Mike Tolbert. Linebacker
Matt Milano (hamstring), tackle Jordan Mills (ankle) and receiver Deonte
Thompson (shoulder) are also questionable. Cornerback Shareece Wright
(concussion) is out. — CLEVELAND (AP)Call him mobile, dynamic, proven or
Buffalo’s former quarterback. Don’t dare label Tyrod Taylor anything else.In his
first official appearance since coming to Cleveland, Taylor, who ended the
Bills‘ long playoff drought last season, was asked if he could be a one-year
stopgap or ”bridge” quarterback while the Browns develop a young QB.No chance.”I
don’t necessarily view myself as a bridge quarterback White Bruce Smith Jerseys ,” he said. ”I’m a quarterback. As far as a bridge, hopefully I’m helping bridge this team to a Super Bowl. And that’s the
plan.”Taylor was introduced along with Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry and
cornerback Damarious Randall as the Browns rolled out new faces on their roster
following a whirlwind of trades and free-agent signings. It was another
significant day in a recent string of them lately for a team trying to crawl out
from the rubble of a historic 0-16 season and projecting a positive image.As for
the Browns’ plans with the 28-year-old Taylor, who went 22-21 as a starter in
three seasons with Buffalo, coach Hue Jackson made it clear that even if
Cleveland selects a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft
that the depth chart is already set.”He is going to be the starting
quarterback,” Jackson said. ”There is no competition.”With their overhaul in
full swing under new general manager John Dorsey, the Browns officially signed
seven free agents, including running back Carlos Hyde and Chris Hubbard and
Donald Stephenson, a pair of tackles who can help the club’s transition after
star left tackle Joe Thomas retired on Wednesday to end a Hall of Fame
career.The Browns also finalized deals with cornerback T.J. Carrie, tight end
Darren Fells, defensive back Terrance Mitchell and defensive end Chris
Smith.Dorsey also made another trade – his fifth in less than a week – by
sending cornerback Jason McCourty and a 2018 seventh-round pick (No. 219
overall) to the New England Patriots for a 2018 sixth-round pick (No. 205
overall). McCourty started 14 games in one season with Cleveland.Dorsey called
the recent wave of activity ”just the first phase” in rebuilding the
Browns Bruce Smith Jerseys 2019 , who have gone 4-44 over the past three seasons. Talent has been brought in to Cleveland, and like so many GMs and coaches before
him, Dorsey said there is a feeling of renewal.”You can feel a certain energy in
the building,” he said. ”That is what I always like about this period when new
guys come in here and guys are really excited to be here and I really appreciate
that.”Until those guys come together in training camp and the OTA sessions
because every team’s identity is different year in and year out. Just meeting
those guys today, I can understand that they are going to help us and help us
achieve our ultimate goals.”Jackson has been invigorated by the infusion of
talent, especially by the additions of Taylor and Landry, a combo that could
transform the Browns.”It gives me back my swag,” joked Jackson, who is 1-31 in
two seasons. ”His nickname is Juice Landry. He does have juice. He is a
tremendous football player. Obviously, his stats speak for themselves. He is a
proven football player in the building who has a lot of intensity and a lot of
pride about what he does. You look at Tyrod and the way he carries
himself White Andre Reed Jerseys , you can tell he is very proud of is accomplishments.”I know everybody is talking about the past and what has gone on here. I don’t
think that is what fazes him. He has been in tough situations before. We all
understand the situation we are in. We have a lot of work to do. Those are two
guys that you start to turn and change the narrative with and change the culture
with.”NOTES: One day after retiring, Thomas was at the team’s facility working
with T Shon Coleman, who could switch to left tackle after starting 16 games on
the right side last season. Jackson said he’s told Thomas to hang around as much
as he wants. ”This is still his football team,” Jackson said. ”His locker will
stay the same. His place on the plane will be the same if he wants to go. That
is how much I think of Joe Thomas. He will be missed.” …Dorsey sidestepped a few
questions about upcoming workouts for college QBs. Because he was focused on
free agency, he did not attend sessions for Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield or UCLA’s
Josh Rosen, two of the top four prospects. ”There are also private workouts,
too,” he said.—
