Earlier on Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport had reported that Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy had suffered some fractured ribs during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field.

A few hours later, Rapoport corrected his earlier report and said that McCoy's tests on Monday morning did not show any fractures in his ribs.

Later on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter added to Rapoport's earlier tweet, saying that McCoy has cracked rib cartilage, which will likely leave him as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

The 30-year-old was injured during the third quarter of Sunday's loss when he was tackled on a run play to the right by Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman. After McCoy was tackled, Bills center Ryan Groy was pushed back into McCoy and he landed on top of his running back. McCoy remained down on the field for a bit, but was able to return to the game on a limited basis.

McCoy finished the day rushing for just 39 yards on nine carries.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott will address the media on Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. You can hear the press conference live on WGR.
