by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got two MRIs on his toe "just to be certain," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. The results were the same, and "it's not expected to be an issue," the paper said.

McCoy said he's dealing with a mini version of turf toe.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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."


LeSean McCoy got MRI for toe injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said he hurt his toe in a joint practice with the Patriots last week, then "felt it" during Friday's game, reports the Delaware News Journal. The toe was hurting "at an all-time high" Sunday, so McCoy sat out practice and got an MRI, he said.

McCoy said the MRI came back fine and he feels good. He returned to a full practice Monday.

LeSean McCoy mum on practice absence


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did not practice Sunday, and he did not answer when asked about it afterward, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. McCoy was walking without issue, the report added.

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.

LeSean McCoy optimistic about addition of Darren Sproles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy has claimed that the addition of Darren Sproles will prove beneficial to his own production. McCoy cited overwork he experienced in 2013.

"I think 366 touches is a lot," he told ESPN. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together. I think having me fresh in the fourth quarter with fewer carries can be even more dangerous."

McCoy already boasts the NFL record for fourth-quarter touchdowns of 40 yards or more with seven. He led all backs last season with 441 yards and a 5.96 per-carry average in the fourth quarter. It is believed keeping him fresher might make those numbers even better.


LeSean McCoy aims for more explosiveness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy led the NFL with 1,607 rushing yards last season, but thinks he can do better.

"I want to be more explosive and in better shape," McCoy told Fox Sports. "I want to take over more games in the fourth quarter. Whether if it’s in the air or on the ground, it’s about being productive and effective at all times.

"I do a lot of one-on-one things: one-legged squats, one-legged hops, one-legged jumps. Those kinds of things will help me be more explosive."

McCoy credited coach Chip Kelly for a lot of his success.

"He really lets you be yourself," McCoy said. "The biggest thing I like about him is he’s always trying to find ways to make us better, whether it’s recovery, the training loads. He’ll do whatever it takes to make the athlete better. That’s what I love about him. He’s always trying to make us better."


LeSean McCoy: Darren Sproles will help me be more productive


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who got 366 touches last season, said he'll be fresher thanks to the signing of running back Darren Sproles.

"Signing Sproles helps me out as a running back," McCoy said, per Fox Sports. "I can go in a game even more fresh because I’m getting less carries and less attempts. I had 366 touches, which is a lot. I think me having less attempts can help me be more productive and more deadly. Being fresh in the fourth quarter, things that you don’t think matter really do make a big difference.

“Now defenses have another guy that they have to prepare for. They have to watch out for so many different things, and it’s hard. They only get a week to prepare for us.”


No need to worry about LeSean McCoy's Fantasy ranking


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The addition of Darren Sproles to the Eagles running back corps might sound scary at first when you think about LeSean McCoy's prospects, but the reality is that the Eagles do so much with running backs that it shouldn't sink McCoy too much.

McCoy had 314 carries and 52 catches last year. The rest of the Eagles' running backs combined for 86 carries and 12 catches. While there was probably a concern in Philadelphia to reduce McCoy's touches, the arrival of Sproles shouldn't signal anything close to a 50/50 or even 70/30 split. Remember, Sproles' best work in New Orleans came as a receiver out of the backfield, not as a pure rusher. I would be surprised if McCoy lost any more than five percent of his rushing workload and maybe 15-20 percent of his receiving workload. 

Sheil Kapada of Philadelphia Magazine suggests, it's unlikely McCoy will see a significant decrease in work in 2014 and I agree. McCoy should land with at least 300 touches while Sproles settles for roughly 110 touches. The backups on the roster will probably cobble together another 50 touches. 

I think it's fair to ballpark McCoy for 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's no longer the top overall player for me in Fantasy -- that goes back to Jamaal Charles -- but he's still in the Top 3.  


Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has won FedEx Ground Player of the Year honors for the second time in three seasons.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
