Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy suffered an ankle injury during the 2014 Pro Bowl and is considered doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Not the ideal end to the season for the NFL's rushing leader, but he'll have ample time to heal for 2014.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy wants to carry the ball more, and put the offense on his back. 'I feel like this game, I've got to put the offense on my back,' McCoy said Wednesday. 'I want to roll. I feel like myself and the big guys up front -- we've got to put this game on our back and take care of business and get a win.'
Huddle Up: There would be no better time for the Eagles and McCoy's fantasy owners to lean heavily on the RB with the Bears and their 29th-ranked defense vs. fantasy backs coming to town.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (leg) left Thursday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs after suffering a second-quarter leg injury but returned in the third quarter and finished with 158 rushing yards and a TD on 20 carries.
Huddle Up: The NFL's rushing leader threw a big-time scare into his fantasy owners when he limped to the lockerroom in the second quarter, but returned with a flourish, posting his third 100-yard game -- rushing or receiving -- in 3 outings this season on an otherwise disappointing night for Philly.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy wants the team to spread the ball around better on offense. "I didn't mind it Monday night," McCoy said. "I think we can do a better job rotating because it's a long season. I don't think I need to have the ball 31, 32 times in a game for us to be a successful offense. We have too many different weapons. I think the running backs we have here can definitely play. Bryce Brown showed you last year he's definitely a talented back. So I think we have to do a better job of monitoring the reps."
Huddle Up: While Philly's new offense may be running more plays, the plan certainly can't be to load up McCoy with 30 touches a week. Brown will see more work, and possibly Chris Polk as well, though McCoy will still see more than enough touches to remain a top fantasy contributor.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 184 yards and a TD on 31 carries and caught a pass for 5 yards Monday, Sept. 9 in a 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: McCoy, one of the key cogs in Chip Kelly's new warp-speed offense, claimed the NFL rushing lead by halftime, picking up 115 yards in the opening 30 minutes, and finished a yard off his career single-game high on a career-high 31 carries. With all the touches he's expected to get in Kelly's attack, McCoy is the early front-runner for the top-scoring fantasy RB of 2013.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (knee) is expected to play in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Good news for McCoy and his fantasy owners as the RB is trying to bounce back from a disappointing 2012 when he missed 4 games and finished 21st among fantasy backs (Huddle Performance scoring).

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (knee) will not play in the first preseason game because of his knee injury.
Huddle Up: The injury isn't considered to be serious, so the Eagles are likely just being cautious with their franchise RB by sitting him for Friday's game. At this point the injury is nothing for owners to worry about and McCoy should still be considered a first-round fantasy pick.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk continues to challenge RB Bryce Brown for the primary backup spot behind RB LeSean McCoy. The knock on Brown is that he continues to have a tendency to bounce it outside, while Polk runs more between the tackles. However, at joint practice Wednesday, Aug. 7, with the New England Patriots, Polk put the ball on the ground. Brown has yet to fumble so far during training camp.
Huddle Up: This is a battle for fantasy owners to watch closely during training camp. Polk was a highly regarded college back but went undrafted because of knee issues. Brown was productive last year in spot duty late in the season. Whichever back wins the No. 2 job has fantasy value as McCoy's handcuff in Chip Kelly's run-heavy offense.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (knee) returned to team activities Tuesday, May 28.
Huddle Up: Solid sign that everything's OK with McCoy's knee after the RB left practice a week ago with what was described as "discomfort."

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (knee) is OK after leaving workouts Monday, May 20, with knee discomfort.
Huddle Up: Great news for Eagles fans and McCoy's fantasy owners -- not necessarily in that order.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy left organized team activities Monday, May 20, after suffering a knee injury. He did not look to be limping or in any pain after the workout.
Huddle Up: It's not too early to remind you that Bryce Brown is a quality handcuff to McCoy, and that Chip Kelly won't be afraid to use both in the same backfield at the same time.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy has been sued for an incident on a party bus. The team is aware of the allegations and has no comment.
Huddle Up: "Incidents" would seem to be part of the expected party-bus agenda, but we'll keep an eye out for any ramifications -- if any -- this situation has on the 2013 status of one of fantasy's top all-around backs.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said the Eagles new offense runs the ball a lot. 'We run it so much it's like a freakin' track meet,' McCoy said.
Huddle Up: Since McCoy entered the league as a second-round draft pick in 2009, the Eagles have the 11th-fewest rushing attempts in the league. And while the Oregon offense isn't making the move East fully intact, expect a noticeable uptick in rushing plays for Philly this season.
