The Buffalo Bills will be without two explosive offensive playmakers Sunday as head coach Rex Ryan ruled out running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) from Sunday’s game against the New York Giants:

The news isn’t a total shocker considering Ryan admitted Wednesday that McCoy was not 100 percent (via NFL.com):

“He’s certainly not 100 percent. We’re holding him out from practice. (There is) a real possibility he won’t play,” Ryan said, via WGR Radio’s Sal Capaccio. “Is it worth the time to get him near or 100 percent? We’re weighing that right now.”

With McCoy out, Karlos Williams looks to shoulder the load for the Bills — and he’s definitely capable. Through three games he has 186 yards and three touchdowns.
