ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- A dislocated left thumb isnt expected to prevent LeSean McCoy from missing a game.A person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that the Buffalo Bills running back is expected to play against Jacksonville this weekend after having surgery for the injury.The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity because Bills coach Rex Ryan declined to provide a definitive answer regarding McCoys playing status a day after the player was hurt in the first half of a 16-12 win at Cincinnati .Ryan confirmed McCoy had surgery after the team returned home on Sunday night, but wouldnt commit to whether he might play against the Jaguars.I guess well see how he progresses through the week, Ryan said.The best answer Ryan gave came when he compared McCoys chances of playing to that of receiver Robert Woods, who sprained his left knee against the Bengals.In already listing Woods as doubtful, Ryan acknowledged he was more encouraged about McCoys status.Thats potentially good news for an offense thats had trouble staying healthy for much of this season. The Bills are already missing their top receiving threat, Sammy Watkins (left foot) and starting center Eric Wood (broken right leg).McCoy was hurt when he fell on his left hand while being pushed out of bounds following an 8-yard run late in the second quarter. He immediately grabbed his hand and ran off to the locker room before being ruled out.He leads Buffalo with 716 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, including one scored against the Bengals, and also has 144 yards receiving and a touchdown.McCoy played a key role for a Tyrod Taylor-led offense that leads the NFL with 1,578 yards rushing.Buffalo has topped 160 yards rushing in each of its past three games and six times this season, including a 312-yard outing in a 45-16 win over San Francisco on Oct. 16.In beating the Bengals, the Bills (5-5) snapped a three-game skid to remain in the playoff picture.Because of tiebreaking scenarios and a 2-4 conference record, Buffalo has little margin for error in a bid to end the NFLs longest active postseason drought, which is at 16 years.Woods, who leads the team with 42 catches and 493 yards, was hurt in the first quarter when his cleat got stuck in the turf and his left leg bended awkwardly while being tackled after making a 13-yard catch.Ryan had no update on whether Watkins will be cleared for practice this week. Watkins was placed on injured reserve in September and has missed eight games since aggravating an injury to his surgically repaired left foot.Under NFL rules, the Bills have the option of activating Watkins within the next two weeks.I really dont know how realistic it is, Ryan said when asked about Watkins. I think I speak on behalf of every Buffalo Bill fan, we all are hoping he can play some. But well see how it goes.If Watkins and Woods cant play, the Bills will be down to their backup receivers, led by outside speedster Marquise Goodwin, as well as tight end Charles Clay.Game notes Ryan said safety Robert Blanton is still having tests on a foot he injured against the Bengals, and called it doubtful hell play against Jacksonville. ... By outscoring the Bengals 6-0 in the second half, the Bills overcame a halftime deficit for the first time since a 14-13 win at Tennessee on Oct. 11, 2015. Buffalo trailed the Titans 3-0 at the half. ...

SHKODRA, Albania -- Mario Mandzukic struck a first-half hat trick for Croatia to hand Kosovos 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign a bitter setback on Thursday.The team from the tiny Balkan nation earned a credible 1-1 draw in Finland last month in its competitive international debut and was looking to spring another surprise against heavy favorite Croatia.But Croatia and Mandzukic had different ideas, and won 6-0. It was the first competitive home game for Kosovo but played in Albanias northern city of Shkodra, as Kosovo has no stadium certified by UEFA.All 16,000 seats in Shkodras recently renovated stadium were filled.Kosovo became a UEFA member in May, joined FIFA a week later, and was fast-tracked into World Cup qualifying though many nations still have not recognized it.Proving the sensitivity of the move, Croat fans started chanting in Serbo-Croatian Kill, kill the Serbs in the second half, and they were echoed and followed by Kosovo fans, too, in Albanian.Croatia was without star midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric but had another star available: Mandzukic ruthlessly exploited Kosovos inexperience and needed just six minutes to open the scoring off a pass from Andrej Kramaric.And that was just the beginning for the striker.In the 24th, Mandzukic met Ivan Perisics cross to head home and double the lead, and completed his hat trick with another header 10 minutes before the interval, this time using a cross from Sime Vrsaljko, for his 27th goal in 71 internationals.With the damage done and the result beyond doubt early, Mandzukic was substituted by Nikola Kalinic in the 58th.ddddddddddddMatej Mitrovic, Perisic and Kalinic added one each for Croatia to finish Kosovo off.With only the winner qualifying automatically, Croatia is tied atop Group I with Iceland, on four points. Ukraine and Turkey have two points after their 2-2 draw. Kosovo is at the bottom of the group with one.ICELAND 3, FINLAND 2Iceland rallied in the final minutes to earn its first victory in qualifying.Alfred Finnbogason leveled the score in the final minute of the match, and Ragnar Sigurdsson scored the winner deep into stoppage time for the surprise Euro 2016 quarterfinalist.Gylfi Sigurdsson wasted a golden opportunity to tie it at 2-2 from the spot earlier in the second.Finland, which is also seeking its first World Cup appearance, took a 2-1 lead with goals from Teemu Pukki and Robin Lod.Kari Arnason scored for Iceland in the first half.TURKEY 2, UKRAINE 2Hakan Calhanoglu converted from the spot nine minutes from time to keep Turkey in contention.The Ukraine visitors, who hope to add another World Cup appearance after reaching the quarterfinals in 2006, made a strong start through Andriy Yarmolenko from the penalty spot, and Artem Kravets doubled the lead for Ukraine just three minutes later.Ozan Tufan reduced the lead to one in first-half stoppage time to start the Turkish comeback.
