Marcell Dareus upgraded to full practice participant; LeSean McCoy briefly sits out with illness

The Buffalo Bills' injury report provided some good news Thursday.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was upgraded to a full participant after being limited Wednesday because of a hip injury. Additionally, running back LeSean McCoy was limited after coming down with an illness. That's good news, though, because the team initially reported McCoy - who was not present for the portion of practice open to the media – would be out.

"What I saw, you really want to know? Yeah, he got a little bit ill at practice," coach Sean McDermott said. Maybe he didn’t like the play call, I don’t know."

McDermott didn't sound worried about McCoy's status for Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets.

"I saw him dancing around, it looked like he was good," the coach said. "He had a good practice."

McCoy declined to speak with reporters after practice. Also listed as a limited practice participant was safety Colt Anderson (foot). Full participants were Dareus, wide receiver Jordan Matthews (sternum), quarterback Tyrod Taylor (concussion) and tackle Cordy Glenn (foot).

Defensive tackle Jerel Worthy (concussion) and linebacker Tanner Vallejo (knee) did not practice.
