The Buffalo Bills are not at full strength in the backfield ahead of Week 3's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered cracked rib cartilage in Week 2, was limited for Wednesday's practice.

Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that McCoy is considered day to day, while NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport previously reported McCoy is expected to attempt play in Week 3.

McCoy told reporters following practice that he'll know by Friday or Saturday if he'll be able to play Sunday against the Bills. McCoy added that he plans to wear protective equipment to shield his injured ribs from contact.

"[I'll see] if I can actually go out there and run full tilt, full speed with no pain," he said, per ESPN.com. "But it might be some pain. I'll have to deal with it.

The Bills currently have depth at the running back position behind McCoy on the active 53-player roster with Chris Ivory, Marcus Murphy and Taiwan Jones. If needed, the Bills also have running back Keith Ford on the practice squad.
