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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

LeSean McCoy is practicing through a "small version of turf toe."

Whatever that means. "(Sunday) it was really, really hurting pretty bad," McCoy said Monday. "It felt a little better (Monday), so I went for it." X-rays and an MRI came back negative, so there's no real reason to worry, though it's possible McCoy will sit out this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal as a precaution. It's something for fantasy owners to be aware of, but not fret over.

According to ESPN Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan, LeSean McCoy looks "better than ever."

Now in his true prime at 26 years old, McCoy is playing with a top-3 offensive line and in a run-first scheme. He's dropped a few pounds off his '13 playing weight, reportedly gaining even more quickness and agility. "McCoy seems better at getting out into pass routes and catching the ball. He teases defenders who try to cover him," Sheridan said. McCoy is our No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.

LeSean McCoy hopes to rush for 2,000 yards this season.

"This is THE YEAR!!!!," McCoy tweeted. "My potential is #2000yards. Will I reach it? Stepping up my training and signs point to yes." 2,000 yards is the target for any star back, but McCoy arguably has the best shot of any player in the league this season. He's Rotoworld's No. 1 overall player.

LeSean McCoy reported to camp 5-7 pounds lighter.

McCoy revealed he did so by cutting out junk food, specifically late-night Doritos. Shady said he feels "much more explosive," and "wanted to do it for (Chip Kelly's) offense." Standing in at 5-foot-11, McCoy still tips the scales at over 200 pounds. He's fantasy's No. 1 overall player this season.

Eagles running backs are racking up an "absurd" number of receptions early in camp.

Last year, Darren Sproles was fourth among running backs with 71 catches and LeSean McCoy was 12th with 52. Both backs dominate one-on-one matchups with linebackers, so it's a no-brainer for Chip Kelly to scheme to them. McCoy's three-down plus goal-line role along with his pass-game chops in a dynamic offense make him our No. 1 overall fantasy player.

Philly Mag's Sheil Kapadia does not expect the Eagles to lighten LeSean McCoy's workload.

Last year, McCoy led the league in carries (314), touches (366) and was second among running backs in snaps. He was more than capable of handling it, showing no signs of wearing down and rarely taking big hits. McCoy just turned 26 years old last week and remains the obvious focal point of Chip Kelly's run-first scheme. He's our pick at No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports the Eagles want to "move even faster in 2014."

Breer says it's something he heard "consistently" observing Eagles practice. Breer's report comes two weeks after the Allentown Morning Call compared Eagles practices to a "drag race." The Eagles finished 13th in plays from scrimmage last season, but that number should shoot up in coach Chip Kelly's sophomore campaign. That can only mean good things for fantasy players.
