ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) A person with direct knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is expected to play against Jacksonville this weekend after having surgery to repair a dislocated left thumb.
The person spoke to The AP on Monday on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not provided an update on McCoy's status a day after he was hurt in the first half of a 16-12 win at Cincinnati.
Coach Rex Ryan is scheduled to address reporters later in the day.

McCoy was hurt when he fell on his left hand while being pushed out of bounds following an 8-yard run. He leads Buffalo (5-5) with 716 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, including one scored against the Bengals.
The Bills also lost starting receiver Robert Woods to a left knee injury.
