by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:49 pm ET) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was forced to leave Sunday's game against Washington in Week 3, after taking a shot to the head.

McCoy was taken to the sidelines where he tried to plead with trainers to let him back in the game. He was taken to the locker room to be examined for a head injury, and at this point, nothing is known on his chances to return. 


LeSean McCoy goes over 100 total yards with a touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy produced another solid, if not spectacular, performance Week 2 at Indianapolis. McCoy ran 20 times for 79 yards, punching in a 1-yard touchdown, and caught four passes for 23 yards.

McCoy was targeted five times and took a back seat in the passing game to running back Darren Sproles, who caught all seven of his targets for 152 yards.

McCoy will go for his first 100-yard rushing game Sunday against the Redskins.


LeSean McCoy starts season with 115 total yards


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) He didn't score, but Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had 74 yards on 21 carries and 41 yards on a team-high six catches in Week 1 vs. the Jaguars. Teammate Darren Sproles scored on a 49-yard scamper on a fourth-and-1 play that took a lot of stats out of McCoy's pocket and totaled 15 touches to McCoy's 27.

McCoy and the Eagles will try to move to 2-0 next Sunday at Indy.


LeSean McCoy appears destined for point explosion Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) OK, so Eagles stud featured back LeSean McCoy has been dealing with a thumb injury. Every other consideration indicates a typical McCoy explosion when Jacksonville comes to town for the season opener Sunday.

Among them is that the Jaguars promise to suffer from one of the weaker run defenses in the sport this year. They ranked 29th in that department at 131.8 yards per game last season and did little to bolster the talent around Pro Bowl linebacker Paul Posluszny.

Another is that McCoy appears to be reaching his peak as both a runner and pass-catcher out of the backfield. He rushed for a career-best 1,607 yards and a 5.1 per-carry average in 2013, added 52 carries for 539 yards in receiving and scored 11 touchdowns.

CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank McCoy second among all running back options in Week 1. Just stick him in your lineups and watch him rack up the points.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy practiced with his thumb wrapped Sunday, but he expects to play without the wrap in the regular-season opener, reports Philly.com. "No, I'll be fine for the opener," he said. "Catch with two hands, one hand, spiking the ball, doing everything we need to do."

McCoy hurt his right thumb Thursday against the Steelers. X-rays revealed no fracture or ligament damage.

McCoy added his left big toe is "feeling good" after it caused him to miss one practice last week. He should be fine for the Sept. 7 opener against Jacksonville.

He rode a stationary bike after the opening drive before returning to action on the following drive. McCoy caught a short pass from Nick Foles and turned it up field for a 22-yard touchdown. He was sent to the locker room for tests immediately after the score. He finished with four carries for 24 yards and two catches for 26 yards and a touchdown before the injury.

LeSean McCoy has 'small version of turf toe'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy missed Sunday's practice with what he calls "a small version of turf toe," Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reports. He returned to practice Monday.

"[Sunday] it was really, really hurting pretty bad," McCoy said. "It felt a little better [Monday], so I went for it."

McCoy added that the toe bothers him when he tries to put pressure on it but said that the injury isn't "severe or serious." He plans to play Thursday against the Steelers.

"If it hurts too much, I’ll shut it down," McCoy said. "I warmed up [Monday] and it felt good. I can feel it still, but I pushed through it. In this league, you have to learn how to play through pain if you can. And if you can, you have to go out there and work hard…my track record, I don’t miss a lot of games, I don’t miss a lot of practices."

Chip Kelly: LeSean McCoy's conditioning has 'really upgraded'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly gave a comprehensive assessment of 2013 NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy on Wednesday. McCoy has plenty of room to improve and hopefully was just "scratching the surface" last year, Kelly said.

McCoy's conditioning "has really upgraded," Kelly added, and it's evident on the practice field.

"He can do everything better," Kelly said. "I know we get that question about all the guys and I get the same question all the time but until someone plays a perfect game, I think that's what we are all striving for.

"But he can do a better job in pass protection, he can do a better job in short yardage situations, he can do a better job in eliminating negative plays where maybe the hole is not exactly there but second and nine is better than second and 14 where all of a sudden every play he's trying to run has to be a home run.

"I think we are seeing that. There's a lot more patience in him in terms of understanding that you have to pick and choose when he has those God-given gifts where he can make people miss but sometimes it becomes when you put us into a negative situation on second down, that's not a good situation. But I think he's worked at it and I think he's in better shape this year.

"His conditioning has really upgraded from where it was a year ago, so you kind of see that on the practice field in terms of what he can do and staying on top of it. He can do a better job as a receiver coming out of the backfield. I think the addition of Darren [Sproles] has helped him from that standpoint. He has a guy to learn from and he's a better route runner right now.

"I think the great thing about him is that he wants to be that. I don't think he's complacent or happy in terms of where he is. Hopefully he thinks that last year was just him scratching the surface in terms of what his potential can be."

LeSean McCoy 'looks better than ever'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who led the NFL in rushing last year, "looks better than ever," reports ESPN.com. McCoy lost a few pounds and worked on his agility in an effort to be quicker this year.

The results have been evident in camp, with McCoy "better at getting out into pass routes and catching the ball," the report said.


LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles quiet in first preseason action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The Eagles didn't really show off much of their new-look backfield in Friday's preseason opener against the Bears, as Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy combined for just five touches.

McCoy had just one carry for no yards and one reception for 8 yards, while Sproles added three rushes for 11 yards with no catches. We will probably see more of the team's plans in the next few preseason games. 


Eagles starters to play 10-15 snaps Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Eagles starters, including quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and receiver Jeremy Maclin, will play 10 to 15 snaps Friday against the Bears, coach Chip Kelly told the Delaware News Journal. Wideout Riley Cooper won't play as he continues to nurse a foot injury.

LeSean McCoy sheds weight, 'feels much more explosive'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Reigning NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy said he lost 5-7 pounds and "feels much more explosive," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. McCoy said he "wanted to do it for Chip's offense."

In coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo attack, McCoy ran for 1,607 yards and scored 11 touchdowns last season as the Eagles made the playoffs.


Chip Kelly says 'there's no set number' for LeSean McCoy's touches


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2014) After totaling 366 touches last season (314 carries, 52 catches), it was presumed that the Eagles would make sure they didn't over-utilize LeSean McCoy this season. Adding Darren Sproles and keeping Chris Polk seemed to speak to that. But the Eagles' official website caught head coach Chip Kelly telling SiriusXM NFL Radio that there is no limit on McCoy. 

"I don't know if there's a set number," Kelly said of McCoy's touches. "Some guys can handle it, but our strength and conditioning staff and our athletic trainers do an unbelievable job of evaluating our players weekly. There's times where I say, 'Hey, do we need to back off?' They're like, 'No, we can even go harder with him,' because all of our players are investing in themselves. They're getting the proper amount of sleep. They're eating the right way. They're doing what we've asked them to do. They understand it because they feel really good."

On those 366 touches, McCoy had a career-best 1,607 rush yards, 2,146 total yards and 11 total touchdowns (his second-best). Another big season is in store. 


LeSean McCoy stands by his word


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy stands by what he said about being the best running back in the NFL, even if that bother Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, reports ESPN.

McCoy, who beat Peterson for the NFL rushing title last season, believes himself the most complete back in the league. That led to a media back-and-forth with Peterson last month, which started when McCoy said he was the NFL's best back.

"I don't know how people may take that," McCoy said after Monday's practice session. "It was a question I was just being honest about. I can't worry about how other people think about it. That's why we work every day. That's why I try to perfect my game. So that if people want to prove me wrong, they can."


LeSean McCoy: I'm better than Adrian Peterson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who led the league with 1,607 rushing yards last season, said he's surpassed the Vikings' Adrian Peterson as the NFL's best back.

"My brother always rips me all the time, trying to make me play harder," McCoy said on ESPN. "I say, 'I'm the best,' and he'll say, 'Did Adrian Peterson retire?' I look at the last three years and everything. I think AP has been the best back for so long, and he's been doing it for so long, that's why he automatically gets the best running back [title].

"But the last three years? I've been All-Pro, first-team, twice. I never leave the field. I block. I catch. I never leave the field. I don't have anybody do my job; I do it myself. Tons of credit goes out to Adrian Peterson. I'm a big fan of his, for sure. But I feel I'm the best."


Eagles address WR need with Jordan Matthews


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Eagles needed a receiver with DeSean Jackson gone, and they addressed the position by drafting Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews in the second round.

Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and he will have minimal Fantasy value in 2014. He should, however, help Nick Foles and the Eagles offense.

Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.

As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.


Eagles will be OK even without DeSean Jackson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) The Eagles lost DeSean Jackson this offseason, and Fantasy owners are concerned their offense could struggle without a deep threat down the field. It's possible, but there's still plenty of talent for Fantasy owners to tap into even though Jackson is gone.

For an in-depth look at some of the top Eagles players -- Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz -- check out this blog I wrote in looking at their preseason outlooks. A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but here is one view on the Eagles heading into this year.
