Bills-Packers injury updates: LeSean McCoy says he's playing

LeSean McCoy, who did not play Sunday against Minnesota because of injured ribs, is listed as limited Wednesday as the Bills return to practice, but he told reporters that he intends to play against Green Bay.

“I’m playing this week," he said. "There’s still some pain but I felt good today. I’m ready to go out and get this thing going again.”

McCoy said the reason that he did not play was because he could not run at full speed.

Coach Sean McDermott said McCoy has made "considerable progress" after suffering cracked rib cartilage in the Week 2 loss to the Chargers.

McCoy, running back Marcus Murphy, defensive lineman Trent Murphy, tight end Charles Clay and pass rusher Shaq Lawson also are limited. Murphy is listed with a rib injury. Clay is listed with shoulder and hip injuries.

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams and linebacker Lorenzo Alexander will get veteran rest days.

Phillip Gaines, who was inactive against the Vikings with a dislocated elbow, is healthy and will practice, McDermott said.

In Green Bay, coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Aaron Rodgers will not practice Wednesday as he continues to recover from a knee injury. Rodgers only practiced on Saturday in the last two weeks and McCarthy said he doesn't know if he will practice sooner than Saturday this week.

Linebacker Nick Perry remains in the concussion protocol, McCarthy said.

Update: Additional testing shows LeSean McCoy did not suffer fractured ribs
