McCoy returns to practice as Bills prep for Monday night

NFL Buffalo

It’s a must win.

Every game for the rest of the season is a must-win to head coach Rex Ryan.

The string of must-win’s will begin out west as Buffalo will take on Seattle and try and solve of the of the best defenses in the league.

Ryan had high praise for the Seahawks defense constantly using the word ‘impressive’ during his Thursday press conference and said they’re one of the best units he’s seen all year.

Love the way they play. I mean this team flies around to the football. It’s everything you want as a defensive coach, you look for that kind of temperament. The collisions cause turnovers, like these guys run, they hit, it’s not just the front-seven, it’s their whole team. Obviously you got the two great safeties, hope the big guy takes a week off but we’ll see. I’ve been really impressed and I’m happy that (Michael) Bennett’s not going to play against us. Oh my goodness, that guy’s—I mean, wow,” said Ryan.

Bills wide receiver Robert Woods added, “Big group of guys, speed, aggressive corners, aggressive safeties, great unit. Their defense matches their style of play…We know they’re good, but we’re going to try and make them play our game and make them play physical with us.”

The Bills got a boost with LeSean McCoy returning to practice this week, Ryan is optimistic of his chances to play in Seattle. 

“He brings another dynamic to our offense. Having a guy like Shady on the field – whether it’s catching out of the backfield or creating plays in the run game – definitely happy to get him back on the field and he looked good today in practice,” said Tyrod Taylor
McCoy added, “My main concern is just how I feel each day at practice and getting treatment mentally and physically. That’s what matters most right now. If I can’t go, I can’t go. But right now I feel good and I have a lot more days left until the game.”
Along with a dominate defense the Bills will have to contend with the 12 man for Seattle, when asked about preparing for the crowd noise at Century Link field, Eric Wood said “you better know the game plan because you’re not going to hear it from anybody else.”
