Injury updates on LeSean McCoy and Robert Woods

Bills star running back LeSean McCoy and top receiver Robert Woods both left Sunday's game with injuries. McCoy's dislocated thumb is not thought to be overly serious, but it appears Woods could miss some time with his injured knee.

Woods had an MRI after the game, and the results weren't encouraging, according to NFL Network.

Woods reportedly suffered a sprain, which is an injury to a ligament. That would seem to put him out for at least this Sunday's game against Jacksonville, and likely longer.

Woods was injured late in the first quarter after being tackled by several Bengals. He left knee bent in a way knees shouldn't bend. He was seen on crutches after the game.

McCoy, however, should be good to go this week. The team announced after the game that his dislocated thumb would require a minor surgery, but that they expect him to play in Week 12.

ESPN's Adam Schefter relayed Monday that surgery went as planned.

With Woods likely down, it's worth noting that Sammy Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve on Friday and could play in Sunday's game. That seems unlikely though, since the team doctors haven't even cleared him to practice yet. He was eligible participate all last week.

Check back for more on these players' statuses after Rex Ryan's Monday evening press conference, which begins at 4:40.
