ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — LeSean McCoy was only watching practice, Rex Ryan told News 4 on Thursday, but the Buffalo Bills coach expects him to be back on the field this Sunday.

McCoy recently injured his hamstring and could not finish practice on Wednesday. During this past Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, McCoy walked off the field in the first half, but returned in the second as he battled injury.

Along with hopes of McCoy’s return to the field, Ryan said rookie linebacker Shaq Lawson will play on Sunday.

“I have seen enough, Ryan said. “There is a reason we took him in the first round.”

There is another hopeful on Ryan’s game radar — Marcell Dareus.

The Bills coach said Dareus is working hard this season after his recent suspension. Ryan hopes to put him in Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.

The Bills will play at 1 p.m. on CBS.
