As both the Jaguars and the Bills ready for their playoff match-up in Jacksonville, the health of key players remains a concern for both of them.

In Buffalo, Bills first year coach Sean McDermott is dealing with the pressures of every aspect of the Bills first playoff game in 18 years, including can star running back LeSean McCoy try to play Sunday with the injured ankle:

McCoy has been in a walking boot since Sunday in trying to help accelerate the healing process after spraining the ankle in Buffalo’s dramatic win Sunday against the Dolphins. Also today, WR Kelvin Benjamin was limited again in practice with a knee injury that has bothered him, since the Bills traded for him from Carolina.

Meanwhile, for the Jaguars, two big concerns are also on offense where left tackle Cam Robinson was limited in practice with his strained abdomen that kept him inactive for the Titans game last Sunday.

Meanwhile, WR Marqise Lee who is battling a high ankle sprain from two weeks ago is hoping to try to play for a little while Sunday. However, he again was unable to even try to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.  Lee is saying all the right things:

We have well documented the Jaguars injuries at the receiver spot that have forced Keelan Cole, Jaydon Mickens and rookie DeDe Westbrook into more pressing roles.

Also absent from practice Wednesday was TE Marcedes Lewis, who is battling an ankle injury of his own. He played last week against the Titans with two catches for 13 yards, but is clearly not 100%. Lewis is the only remaining Jaguar who played previously in Jacksonville’s last Playoff season of 2007, and is one of Blake Bortles’ big targets in the red zone.

Granted both clubs will play it close to the vest on injuries the rest of the week, but you can also bet that especially for veterans like McCoy and Lewis, they are desperate to play in what may be one of their last chances at the playoffs.
