ORCHARD PARK, N. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Mens .Y. -- LeSean McCoy was healthy enough to at least watch part of practice from the sideline Thursday, though its unclear whether the Buffalo Bills top offensive threat can play at Miami on Sunday.A person with direct knowledge of McCoys hamstring injury told The Associated Press the Bills running back is a game-time decision. The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not revealed their plans regarding McCoys playing status.Coach Rex Ryan used the word hopeful in providing an update a day after McCoy left practice complaining of tightness in one of his hamstrings. Ryan declined to go into detail when asked about the severity of the injury except to say it wasnt full blown.He also said he didnt know whether McCoy injured the same left hamstring that hampered his production last season, his first in Buffalo.I know it scares every Buffalo Bills fan because right away we go back to last year, Ryan said. Hopefully, its not to that extent. I dont believe it is.The injury McCoy sustained in training camp last year led to him gaining 145 yards in three games before sitting out the next two. The NFLs 2013 yards-rushing leader then missed the final two games of the season due to a knee injury and finished with 895 yards rushing.Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn wants to be cautious with McCoys injury after what happened last year.I dont want him playing 85 percent, re-injuring the hamstring and then this thing lingers all year, Lynn said. I want him on the field and ready to go. I want him to be LeSean.McCoy was not present for the start of practice Thursday, but was spotted wearing a blue hoodie and carrying a football making his way to the locker room once the session ended.Ryan had encouraging news in saying he expects rookie linebacker Shaq Lawson to play against Miami (2-4). Lawson is Buffalos first-round draft pick who has been out since May when he had surgery to repair a right shoulder injury that nagged him at Clemson.McCoys injury, however, presents a potential big blow to the Bills (4-2), who have leaned heavily on the running back in building a four-game winning streak -- the teams longest in eight years.McCoy has combined for 470 yards rushing and six touchdowns (including one receiving) in the past four games alone, and Buffalo now leads the NFL with 998 yards rushing.If McCoy cant play, backup Mike Gillislee would likely start. The third-year player spelled McCoy in a mop-up role in last weekends 45-16 rout of San Francisco and scored a 44-yard touchdown run.The Bills other running backs are sparingly used veteran Reggie Bush and rookie fifth-round pick Jonathan Williams.Buffalos offense could be further depleted with receiver Robert Woods missing his second consecutive practice because of an injury to his lower right leg. Woods had his right foot in a protective boot on Wednesday, and said he aggravated a pre-existing injury against the Niners. With starting receiver Sammy Watkins out (left foot), Woods leads Buffalo with 25 catches and 240 yards, and also has scored once.On the bright side, tight end Charles Clay returned to practice after missing Wednesdays session with an ankle injury.As for Lawson, Ryan said hes impressed with what hes seen from the pass-rushing specialist in two practices.Yeah, he looks pretty darn good out there. Hes flying around. He looks like the guy that we drafted, Ryan said of the player Buffalo selected 19th overall. Theres a reason we took him in the first round, and hes showing that on the practice field.The Bills would have to make a roster move to activate Lawson off the physically unable to perform list.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Air Max Zero Essential White .

CLEVELAND -- Cy Young Award candidate Corey Kluber will start for the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night in game two of their three-game series with the Kansas City Royals. Kluber will get two more starts after this one. Hell start Sept. 25 against the White Sox and Sept. 30 in Kansas City.That will put Kluber in line to start game one of the Division Series, assuming the Indians reach the postseason. How the Indians starting rotation lines up for the postseason after Klubers game one start is a topic of heavy conversation in Cleveland these days.With Nos. 2 and 3 starters Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar suffering season-ending injuries, the Indians postseason rotation is up in the air. Trevor Bauer will be the No.2 starter and Josh Tomlin, who pitched well in Tuesdays 2-1 win, is the best bet to be the No. 3 starter.Indians officials will undoubtedly consider the possibility of only using three starters, and pitching Kluber and/or Bauer on short rest in the postseason.Its going to depend on how guys are pitching when we get toward the playoffs, Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said. The good thing is Kluber and Bauer can probably pitch on three days rest whenever you need them to. Weve got that in our advantage for sure.Indians officials will ponder their options with their postseason rotation over the next 13 games. At some point they will clinch their first Central Division title since 2007. Their magic number for clinching is down to six.Six of the Indians last 13 games are against the Royals, the defending American League champions. The Royals playoff hopes this season are fading, but they are still mathematically in the race for a wildcard spot.Weednesday night the Royals will send Ian Kennedy (11-9, 3. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Black. 60) to the mound against Kluber (17-9, 3.12).In four starts against the Indians this year Kennedy is 2-2 with a 6.00 ERA. In six career starts vs. Cleveland Kennedy is 2-2 with a 5.59 ERA.Kennedy will be coming into the game on a roll. He hasnt lost a game since July 25. In 10 starts since then he is 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA.Kluber has basically been on a season-long role. In his last 13 starts he is 9-1 with a 2.28 ERA, having pitched himself into position to possibly win his second Cy Young Award in three years.In three starts against the Royals this year Kluber is 1-1 with a 2.50 ERA. In 17 career starts against Kansas City Kluber is 6-6 with a 3.23 ERA.Both teams are coming off a dramatic 2-1 Indians victory Tuesday night. The Indians won it on a walk-off RBI single by Brandon Guyer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Indians lead the majors with 11 walk-off wins, which have come at bats by nine different players.With a good team, thats how it works, said Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona. One through nine, one through twelve, one through 14, whatever it takes.The Royals are still seething from an eighth inning rally that saw them have the potential go-ahead run at third with one out, only to have Christian Colon and Whit Merrifield called out on strikes that the Royals didnt think were strikes.There are a lot of things that happened in the ninth, but what went on in the eighth took us completely out of the inning, Royals manager Ned Yost said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
