Bills' LeSean McCoy limited by neck injury in OTAs

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was limited in Wednesday's organized team activity with a neck injury.

McCoy (pictured) was held out of most drills during the practice, which was the second of OTAs but the first open to reporters.

"He's got a little thing like in his neck or something like that, but it's not serious but it's one of those things where we don't need him out there," coach Rex Ryan said. "I don't even think he had a helmet -- he might have had a helmet out there but I'm not sure."

Without McCoy, the Bills used a combination of Anthony Dixon and Fred Jackson at running back with their first team in 11-on-11 drills. Bryce Brown -- who has participated in OTAs after not taking part in voluntary workouts following the birth of his child -- and rookie Karlos Williams worked with the second and third teams at the far end of the field.

McCoy joined receiver Sammy Watkins, cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore and Leodis McKelvin and safety Aaron Williams as veterans who did not take part in team drills Wednesday. Watkins, Gilmore, McKelvin and Williams all underwent surgeries since last season.

Wide receiver Marcus Thigpen left Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury after slipping on the wet turf in the middle of a pass route. Wide receivers Dezmin Lewis (hamstring), Tobais Palmer (groin) and Andre Davis (unknown) also did not practice.
