Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy surpassed 10,000 career rushing yards in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field, becoming just the 30th player in NFL history to reach the mark.
McCoy entered the game needing 39 yards to reach the milestone. He picked up the necessary yardage on a 14-yard run with 7:11 to play before halftime.
McCoy was injured on the run after being tackled by Kiko Alonso and had to be tended to by trainers, but he returned after missing just one play. He capped the drive two plays later by hauling in a 16-yard touchdown from Tyrod Taylor that put the Bills ahead 14-6.
McCoy told the News earlier this month that once 10,000 yards was within reach, it no longer seemed sufficient. His new goals included 12,000 yards, 100 touchdowns and a Super Bowl, which he believes will be enough to solidify his Hall of Fame credentials.
After the game, McCoy said he hoped Sunday was not his last game in Buffalo.
"I would love to end my career here," he said, “I look at Buffalo like home. The city and fans have embraced me with open arms and I’m thankful for that... I’d love to end my career here with a ring."
McCoy also was asked about his reaction to the trade from Philadelphia that brought him to Buffalo for Kiko Alonso, who had 10 tackles Sunday for the Dolphins. In the midst of the question, McCoy referred to Alonso as "that kid we just played."
