Chip Kelly: LeSean McCoy is not injured


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he doesn't believe running back LeSean McCoy's monumental struggles have anything to do with the turf toe he battled this preseason. "No," Kelly said, via ESPN.com. "Not that I'm aware of."

Added Kelly: "He's not on the treatment list. He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him."

McCoy said after Sunday's loss in San Francisco that it "doesn't matter" whether he's hurt. While that left open the possibility he's injured, McCoy followed up by saying he's fine, the report said.

Over the past two games, McCoy gained 39 yards on 29 carries.


LeSean McCoy becoming a concern


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) For the second straight game, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy averaged less than 2 yards per carry Week 4 at San Francisco, picking up 17 yards on 10 carries. He called the performance "embarrassing," according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

So should his Fantasy owners be concerned? Getting stuffed by the 49ers is one thing, but McCoy managed just 22 yards on 19 carries against the Redskins in Week 3 -- the same team that allowed a combined 121 yards to the Giants' duo of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams Thursday night.

McCoy has still had his moments this year -- he ran for more than 70 yards in each of his first two games, though not for a great yard-per-carry average -- so against a Rams defense that has struggled to stop the run, he deserves to start for you in Week 5. But making a trade to fortify your running back spot, provided you don't sell low on McCoy himself, wouldn't be the worst idea in the world.


The misery continues for LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy hit a new low Week 4 at San Francisco. After being held to 22 rushing yards Week 3, McCoy carried 10 times for 17 yards in the 26-21 loss. 

Shockingly, McCoy was not targeted once. For the season, McCoy has rushed for 192 yards on 70 carries (2.7 ypc). He has as many touchdowns as lost fumbles, one.

Playing behind a terrible offensive line, McCoy has had little room to run. Starting right tackle Lane Johnson will return from his suspension Week 5 when the Eagles host the Rams.


Struggling LeSean McCoy faces tough matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) If I told you 4 weeks ago that Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard had Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ranked 10th among running backs heading into Week 4 against the 49ers, you probably would have guessed that San Francisco's feisty defense was the sole reason why. Unfortunately for anyone who picked McCoy at the top of your draft this summer, that doesn't quite tell the whole story.

Last season, McCoy was a must-start Fantasy option no matter the opponent -- he managed 115 all-purpose yards against the vicious Cardinals defense, after all. After three weeks, however, we have had to reconsider how we view McCoy, given how poorly the Eagles have run the ball. He is averaging just 2.92 yards per carry on 60 rushes behind a patchwork offensive line, a far cry from his 5.1 yards-per-carry mark from 2013.

The fact that McCoy has to go against a 49ers defense that has allowed just 67.7 yards per game and 9.3 Fantasy points to opposing running backs so far only compounds the issues. You cannot think about benching McCoy at this point -- his big-play ability is too enticing. However, temper expectations for this tough matchup. 


LeSean McCoy doesn't think he's struggling


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Although he's averaging 2.9 yards per carry, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy disputes the notion that he's struggling.

"I don't think I'm struggling at all," McCoy told CSNPhilly.com. "I don't know what you mean by that. I don't think I'm struggling, at all. So I don't know what you mean by that."

McCoy is running behind a makeshift offensive line. After gaining 22 yards on 19 carries against the Redskins, McCoy did not make excuses.

"We didn't get it done today on the ground," McCoy said. "Simple as that."

Chip Kelly: Opponents defending LeSean McCoy differently


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Coach Chip Kelly said opponents are playing more base defense and less nickel against the Eagles this year, and that's a big reason why running back LeSean McCoy's numbers are way down. The 2013 NFL rushing leader has run for 175 yards and a touchdown in three games while averaging 2.9 yards per carry.

"I think it's different how they're playing us this year," Kelly said. "We've seen different looks in terms of the three games we've played this year compared to last year. I think LeSean's doing everything possible. Again, if that's how you're going to do it, and we're going to end up with 30-whatever points a game and continue to be productive on the offensive side of the ball, it's ultimately that.

"But also you're down four linemen that you had that were running in front of them last year too. So I think sometimes when we're running the play, there is a lot better push at the point of attack, and that doesn't have anything to do with the running back from that standpoint. It's kind of what it is right now."

Kelly added that "if you're going to play us in base, it's difficult to cover the pass. So it's picking what they want to do."


LeSean McCoy can't find room in shootout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had trouble finding much room to operate in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3.

McCoy rushed the ball 19 times, despite being forced to go to the locker room during the first half to be tested for a concussion. He was cleared and came right back to the game, but failed to make much of an impact. He rushed for just 22 yards in the game, and was held without a reception for the first time Week 3 of last season.

McCoy, last season's rushing leader, has failed to break out through three games. He heads into Week 4 against the 49ers with 175 yards on 60 carries with just one touchdown through three games. 


LeSean McCoy returns to game for next drive


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was taken to the locker room for observation after taking a shot to the helmet in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Washington, but was cleared to return shortly after. He returned to the game in the second quarter. 

LeSean McCoy taken to locker room after helmet hit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 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.


LeSean McCoy practicing in full despite issues


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.


Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy among Eagles practicing Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly announced Saturday that defensive backs Cary Williams (hamstring) and Brandon Boykin (hamstring), along with running back LeSean McCoy (thumb) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (knee) will all practice Saturday, despite missing time in the previous preseason game due to their various maladies.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

McCoy appeared to have injured his thumb on the opening drive of Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

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.

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.
