UPDATE: The Bucs have ruled McCoy out for the remainder of the game. Ke’Shawn Vaughn has one carry in his place as backup to Ronald Jones.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dealing with injuries early in their Week 4 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. Running back LeSean McCoy suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of the Sunday matchup and is questionable to return.

McCoy is serving as a backup to Ronald Jones II while Leonard Fournette is out with an ankle injury as well. It appears like Jones could carry a heavy workload for the duration of the game, alongside Ke’Shawn Vaughn.
