Running back LeSean McCoy the lone Pro Bowl selection for Bills

LeSean McCoy's first season with the Buffalo Bills will end with a trip to the Pro Bowl.


The running back was the lone member of the team selected to the NFL's annual all-star game Tuesday night, the fourth such honor for the seventh-year veteran.

McCoy, 27, has rushed for 895 yards in 12 games this season, his first with the Bills since coming to Buffalo in an offseason trade with the Philadelphia Eagles for linebacker Kiko Alonso. McCoy's average of 74.6 rushing yards per game ranks fifth in the NFL. His 98.9 yards from scrimmage per game ranks sixth in the league.

Earlier this season, McCoy became just the third member of the Bills to have at least 100 yards from scrimmage in seven straight games, joining Hall of Famers O.J. Simpson and Thurman Thomas. That streak came to an end Sunday against Washington, when McCoy suffered a knee injury in the third quarter.

That injury puts the final two games of his season in question, as well as his appearance in the Pro Bowl, which is scheduled to be played Jan. 31 in Hawaii.

McCoy, who also went to the Pro Bowl in 2011, '13 and '14, has rushed for 7,687 yards since entering the NFL in 2009, third most in the league over that time.
