McCoy did not practice Wednesday.
He's out of his protective boot and walking around "without any pain" now.
The Bills are riding an incredible wave of fan support and good feeling by ending the drought. However, since Milano has taken over at weakside linebacker, the big plays on the ground have not been as commonplace.
"It is like you do every week, but you are just checking the boxes, just one more time", Marrone said. And they have inspired a little extra sizzle to a pair of teams and fanbases who have been desperate for a taste of the playoffs.
The Bills snapped the longest postseason drought in USA professional sports by clinching an AFC wild-card berth, so the demand certainly is there. On Thursday, McDermott said it seems McCoy is moving in the right direction, so, "We'll just see how he does". "It's good to have a guy like that, especially a dominant player like him, and it's exciting that he's on my side of the ball".
Flu season at its worst since 2013
Official effectiveness data on this season's flu vaccine will not be available until the middle of next month. Spire said they've seen a 40% spike in sick patients this flu season .

And with Dareus making his first start since the trade last week at Tennessee, he finished with four tackles and a sack as the Jaguars held Derrick Henry to 51 yards on 28 carries.
Listen, I blame myself. And it kind of hurt us. "I've got lifelong friends there, I'm extremely happy that they finally made it, all the fighting and putting it all together for them". "After yesterday [Sunday], that was the end of my season, and I don't even know what my body's going to do this week". Running back Chris Ivory, right tackle Jermey Parnell and cornerback Tyler Patmon have played in two, and tight end James O'Shaughnessy has one. Among them is LB Matt Milano, who is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Starting left guard Quinton Spain is questionable for the Titans (9-7) against the Chiefs (10-6) because of his back.
In the locker room, McDermott says he is confident in the leadership he sees there. Just play solid defense, don't blitz and make Taylor beat you with his arm.
