Injury Disrupts Productive Season for Gillislee 

Gillislee is enjoying a strong season as LeSean McCoy's backup with 326 yards on the ground at a yards-per-carry clip of 5.8 to go along with four rushing touchdowns and eight receptions for 40 yards and another score through the air.

Since signing with the Bills last season, the 2013 fifth-round pick of the Miami Dolphins has provided a dynamic change of pace to the shiftier McCoy.

The Bills are the NFL's No. 1 rushing team with 157.4 yards per game on the ground, and getting Gillislee back will be a big boost to that attack.
