Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy said a "situation" with coach Sean McDermott was the reason McCoy did not start in Sunday's 24-12 loss to the New England Patriots, but he did not elaborate.
Undrafted rookie Keith Ford started at running back for the Bills before McCoy entered on the second offensive play. It was the first time McCoy did not start a game in which he played since 2010.
"Coach, we had a situation, and he was totally right," McCoy said. "It was a private situation. I'm a captain and I gotta be more accountable. Simple as that. He checked me, put me in place. That was it."
McCoy did not elaborate on when the "situation" happened, but said he and McDermott resolved it.
