Asked following Sunday's loss to San Francisco whether he's healthy, LeSean McCoy replied it "doesn't matter."
McCoy followed up by saying he is "fine." He managed 17 yards on ten carries against the 49ers, and there have been rumblings that McCoy is still battling a turf toe injury from the preseason. "He’s not on the treatment list," coach Chip Kelly insisted on Monday. "He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him." The Eagles play the Rams' leaky run defense in Week 5. Sep 29 - 5:24 PM

Chip Kelly absolved LeSean McCoy of blame for his 29 carries and 39 yards over the last two weeks.

"We got whooped up front," Kelly said after the loss to the 49ers. "We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality." The Eagles will get RT Lane Johnson back for Week 5 against the Rams, but C Jason Kelce and LG Evan Mathis aren't coming back anytime soon. The Eagles need to figure out a way to stop penetration in the backfield and get McCoy going north-south. We're confident Kelly will find a way to do that.

LeSean McCoy rushed 10 times for 17 yards on caught zero passes in Sunday's Week 4 loss at San Francisco.

An Eagles offensive line playing without starting C Jason Kelce, starting LG Evan Mathis and starting RT Lane Johnson got tossed around like rag dolls. McCoy was constantly facing penetration behind the line of scrimmage for the second week in a row and lost screen reps to Darren Sproles again. Through four games, McCoy is on pace to rush 240 times for 768 yards with four touchdowns and catch 40 passes for 256 yards. It's incredibly frustrating for owners, but we wouldn't be selling. He'll get Johnson back for next week's game against the Rams and remains the goal-line back for a very prolific offense.

LeSean McCoy is absent from the Week 4 injury report.

McCoy briefly departed Sunday's win over the Redskins after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit, but avoided injury. He's all systems go for this week's showdown with the 49ers.
Sep 24 - 5:19 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 22 yards and caught one pass for zero yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.

McCoy left briefly early on to be checked for a concussion, but that wasn't the issue here. An Eagles offensive line that was the best in the league last year is currently operating at a bottom-five level thanks to injuries and suspensions. They had no prayer against a speedy Redskins front that we need to start taking very seriously against the run. The only shred of good news is that McCoy rushed 20 times compared to two for Darren Sproles, squashing any silly RBBC concerns. McCoy is a good bet to bounce back despite a tough matchup at San Francisco in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:54 PM

LeSean McCoy has been cleared to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins.

It's a pleasant surprise after McCoy appeared very dazed due to a helmet-to-helmet hit from Redskins CB David Amerson. McCoy had two carries for 10 yards and no catches when he went to the locker room.

LeSean McCoy left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Redskins after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter.

On McCoy's second carry of the day, he bounded forward for nine yards but took a brutal shot to the head from Redskins CB David Amerson. He looked extremely dazed as trainers came out to check on him. Chris Polk and Darren Sproles are the backups as McCoy goes to the locker room to get checked for a concussion.
Sep 21 - 1:40 PM

LeSean McCoy said Darren Sproles' 26 touches through two weeks don't bother him at all.

"I don't mind it all," McCoy said after Monday night's comeback win. "And I don't feel as tired or as beat." McCoy still has a very healthy 51 touches through two weeks, so it's not like he's being underutilized. Owners have nothing to worry about as the 31-year-old Sproles is going to regress to the mean and McCoy is staying very fresh.
Sep 16 - 10:26 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed for 79 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night, adding four catches for an additional 23 yards.

McCoy's 102 total yards go largely unnoticed because of Darren Sproles' 178 yards and one score on 11 touches. Still, McCoy had a fine night against a pitiful defense. He didn't break off many big gainers, but McCoy was steady and showed off his video game-like moves on a couple occasions. He pounded his touchdown in from one yard away after Riley Cooper drew a DPI call in the end zone. Sproles' heavier load than expected is a bit of a buzzkill for McCoy owners, but Shady is still producing fine numbers and getting his touches. The Redskins are up next for the Eagles. McCoy will be a top-three option at running back.
Sep 16 - 12:02 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 74 yards and caught six passes for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

Surprisingly, McCoy lost a lot of inside running duties to Darren Sproles (11 carries). That included a fourth-and-1 play in which Sproles burst through the middle of the line and ran for a 49-yard score. We can't complain though, as McCoy ended up with a healthy 27 touches and remained a major part of the check-down game. He remains a good bet to finish the year with 300 carries, and will be an elite RB1 against the Colts in Week 2.
Sep 7 - 5:28 PM

LeSean McCoy said he thinks the arrival of Darren Sproles will mean a few less touches for him.

"I think I'll [still] be the guy with most of the load, but I don't know that 300-plus carries is really needed," McCoy said. Remember that in October of last year, running backs coach Duce Staley said he wouldn't let McCoy exceed 300 carries. He ended with leading the league with 314, and also led the league with 366 touches. When the chips are down on Sundays, it will be very difficult for the Eagles to go away from arguably the game's best running back. Perhaps McCoy loses a few screens and/or swing passes to Sproles, but not much more.
Sep 4 - 10:17 AM

LeSean McCoy (thumb, toe) continues to practice.

If there were any concerns at all over McCoy's sore toe or thumb, the Eagles would certainly hold him out of practice. He remains our pick at No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts despite the extremely minor nicks. "I'll be fine for the opener," McCoy said. "Catch with two hands, one hand, spiking the ball, doing everything we need to do."
Aug 25 - 8:42 AM

LeSean McCoy's (thumb) X-rays came back negative, and the injury is not considered serious.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane, Shady has avoided any fractures or torn ligaments. It's a best-case scenario after McCoy was forced from Thursday's regular-season dress rehearsal after racking up 50 yards and a score on only six touches. McCoy will be ready to rock for Week 1. Draft him as you normally would.
Aug 21 - 8:45 PM

LeSean McCoy was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers with a right thumb injury.

Shady headed to the locker room for X-rays midway through the first quarter. His return is "unknown," but he obviously won't be checking back in. Nursing a toe injury coming into the game, McCoy was his normal explosive self, rushing four times for 24 yards while snagging two passes for 26 yards and a score. His status should be updated later Thursday evening.
Aug 21 - 8:10 PM

Coach Chip Kelly downplayed LeSean McCoy's "small version" of turf toe Tuesday.

McCoy practiced in full Monday, a surefire sign that this ailment is nothing to worry about. If the Eagles' medical staff had any concern at all, they would have held him out as the regular season opener is more than two weeks away. "He's fine," Kelly said. "It's not as big of an issue as I think anybody has made it out to be. ... There’s a lot of questions about a toe in August that I think is way overblown." Owners looking for protection can snag Chris Polk, although he has to get over his nagging hamstring injury soon to secure the backup job.
