Biggest concern for LeSean McCoy's thumb: Infection, not usage

Bills running back LeSean McCoy left Sunday's game with a dislocated thumb and was unable to return. He had surgery later that night in Buffalo, and all signs point to him being able to play this week against the Jaguars.

"LeSean, he's told me he's full-go," quarterback Tyrod Taylor said. "He was able to catch the ball, and of course looked well running the ball too, but he was able to catch it. So I'm expecting him to play Sunday."

Coach Rex Ryan said his biggest concern for McCoy's thumb is infection – not usage or reinjury.

"I think we’ll just lean on him and we’ll also keep watching him as he goes," Ryan said. "I think the big thing is making sure his thumb doesn’t get infected. That’s the number one thing. If that stays clean, then there’s no issue there. I think he’s going to be OK."

McCoy was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, as was receiver Sammy Watkins. Running back Mike Gillislee left practice early with a hamstring injury.

Did not participate: LT Cordy Glenn (back), S Robert Blanton (foot), TE Charles Clay (knee), WR Robert Woods (knee).

Limited: RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring), LB Lorenzo Alexander (ankle), DT Corbin Bryant (shoulder), LB Jerry Hughes (hand), RB LeSean McCoy (thumb), WR Sammy Watkins (foot).

Full: LB Shaq Lawson (thumb), QB Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder).
