BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Last week he ran down a win. This Sunday, LeSean McCoy will look to chase down an NFL milestone. McCoy needs just 39 yards to reach 10,000 for his career and would become the 30th player to reach that mark.
“I think after the season I can really reflect and look back on my career and the 10,000 yard mark,” McCoy said. “I mean it will happen, then I’ll have time with my family to talk about it, enjoy it, with the teammates that have helped me get to this point.”
The Bills offensive line is very aware of McCoy’s 10K chase.
“It means everything and I take his goals just as serious as I take my own goals,” rookie left tackle Dion Dawkins said. “I’m pushing for him just as much as he’s pushing me.”
“Shady’s a special back, and to be a part of getting him to 10.000 is awesome,” guard Richie Incognito added. “You know the last three years we been chugging out yards and we’ve been a really potent rushing attack so to be this close and to get the excitement and hype going is fun.”
McCoy didn’t recall his first career run with the Eagles, but shred a funny story about his first big mistake in the league.
“We were going to score, we were on like the two-yard line, three-yard line and we’ve been practicing this play all week. It was like a fake run pass, right? [Donovan] McNabb was quarterback, we ran it, and as I’m running to catch it, I lost the ball in the light, and the ball hit me in the back of my helmet. The defender picked it up and ran it all the way back for a touchdown. That’s embarrassing.”
