LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 130 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's 43-24 Week 12 win over the Titans.
McCoy wasn't quite back to 2013 form, but this was his best performance in a disappointing 2014 season. He broke off a season-long run of 53 yards in a first half that saw him record a 14-100-1 line despite getting another touchdown vultured (again) by Darren Sproles. In the second half, the Eagles used the lopsided score to back off McCoy with a Thursday Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys on deck. Expect another 20-plus touches in that one for Shady, who now has at least 20 carries in six of the last seven games. Nov 23 - 4:38 PM

LeSean McCoy insisted Wednesday that he's currently the same player he was last year, when he won the rushing title.

McCoy threw his offensive line under the bus a bit, saying, "I've had to earn everything I get this year." That's partially true, but McCoy also isn't beating defenders the hole like he did last year and isn't creating those extra yards like he normally does. Now averaging just 3.71 YPC with two touchdowns, projections have to be lowered even in plus matchups like Sunday's home game against the Titans. He's a low-end RB1.
Nov 20 - 10:19 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed 23 times for 88 yards and caught one pass for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Green Bay.

Struggling with his footing on a sloppy Lambeau Field, McCoy slipped down while making cuts repeatedly. He did go over 100 yards on the day, but much of it came in garbage time and he still has just two touchdowns all year. Weekly projections have been reduced, although they should be bumped back up for a Week 12 home game against the Titans. McCoy now has at least 21 carries in five of his last six games.
Nov 16 - 8:00 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 12 times for 19 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 10 clobbering of the Panthers on Monday night.

He caught just one pass for minus-two yards in an extremely disappointing effort when the Eagles hung 45 points on the Panthers. McCoy's one-yard touchdown was of the true vulture variety after Brent Celek reeled in a 37-ayrd pass but was dragged down at the half-yard line. McCoy walked in on the next play for just his second score of the year. After a strong previous four weeks, McCoy just couldn't get moving upfield Monday. He'll get the Packers' weak run defense in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 12:05 AM

LeSean McCoy has gone over 80 rushing yards in four consecutive games for the first time in his career.

McCoy's slow start and zero touchdowns since Week 2 has owners frustrated. It's time to pounce with a buy-low offer. He continues to run at an extremely high level, averaging 5.28 YPC over his last three games, and got stud C Jason Kelce back Sunday. The touchdowns are going to come and the upcoming schedule is fantastic: Panthers, Packers, Titans, Cowboys. McCoy is going to shatter his current 320-1,244-2 rushing pace.
Nov 3 - 8:56 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed 23 times for 117 yards and caught two passes for six yards in Sunday's Week 9 win at Houston.

With stud C Jason Kelce back, there were plenty of lanes for McCoy to exploit. He did just that, going over 100 rushing yards for the second time in three games. Unfortunately, he needed a break after back-to-back long runs in the third quarter, which allowed Chris Polk to come on and vulture a touchdown. Still, McCoy's arrow is point straight up. He'll beat the current 320-1,244-2 rushing line he's on pace for at the midway point. The Eagles face the Panthers poor defense next week.
Nov 2 - 6:20 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 83 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Arizona.

It was a very encouraging performance considering McCoy was facing arguably the best run defense in the NFL. The improving offensive line opened holes that he could gash, of course picking up more yards than about 95 percent of the other backs in the NFL would. The Eagles certainly could have rode McCoy a bit harder to control the clock more, but the volume continues to be there. He was unfortunately stuffed on a goal-line chance. Shady has gone over 20 carries in three straight games and in five of the seven this season. He'll be a no-brainer RB1 against the Texans in Week 9.
Oct 26 - 8:39 PM

LeSean McCoy had 22 carries for 149 yards in Sunday night's Week 6 win over the Giants.

He added two catches for five yards. It was McCoy's best game of the year, though he failed to score a touchdown for the fourth straight week. McCoy was able to find more running lanes against the Giants, including a season-long 28-yard run. The Eagles rested him in the fourth quarter, giving backup TE Trey Burton five carries. McCoy will be a 20-touch back whether or not Darren Sproles (knee) can play following the bye.
Oct 13 - 12:21 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed 24 times for 81 yards and caught four passes for five yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Rams.

Facing a defense that had been getting torched against the run, it was another frustrating day for McCoy. He repeatedly tried to create something that wasn't there by going east-west, one time carelessly losing a fumble at the end of a 9-yard loss. We did see brief flashes of the old McCoy, as he broke off a 19-yard run with the league-best cuts he's known for. The good news is that the Eagles aren't giving up on him at all, as he out-touched Darren Sproles 28-7. He's also a rare three-down plus goal-line back that's healthy. McCoy will remain a low-end RB1 against the Giants in Week 6.
Oct 5 - 4:36 PM

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.

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.
Sep 28 - 7:50 PM

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.
