The Buffalo Bills, whose offense is predicated on the running game, are running out of running backs. LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion) were both held out of practice on Wednesday.
That means Boobie Dixon is now the top dog in the backfield for this week's game.
"I think Boobie can be a good back," head coach Rex Ryan said. "I think he is a good back, and he's also a good special-teams player. But we'll see. We'll see how Karlos — he's in the concussion protocol. And we'll see about LeSean as the week progresses. Those two will be out today, but hopefully we can get a shot at one of those guys, too."
Last week vs the Giants, with McCoy out, the Bills could only manage 2.3 yards per carry behind Williams and QB Tyrod Taylor and gained only two first downs on the ground.
