Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy won’t practice Wednesday, leaving uncertain his status to play against the Detroit Lions this weekend.

Coach Sean McDermott would only say “we’ll just take it one day at a time right now” when asked if he expects McCoy to be able to practice this week.

McCoy hurt his hamstring and backup Chris Ivory hurt his left shoulder in a 27-23 loss to the New York Jets last weekend.

McDermott said Ivory would practice Wednesday.

The Bills promoted running back Keith Ford from their practice squad to add depth at the position with Marcus Murphy the only other running back on the roster.

Ford is an undrafted rookie free agent who split his college career between Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

Safety Dean Marlowe also was promoted from the practice squad a day after Buffalo placed cornerback Taron Johnson on injured reserve.

The Bills also signed receiver Tanner McEvoy, tight end Kyle Carter and cornerback Josh Thornton to their practice squad.
