Eagles running back LeSean McCoy missed practice Thursday, due to the flu.  He was back at practice on Friday, and he expressed optimism regarding his ability to play when the Eagles host the Bears on Monday night.

I’ll be fine for the game,” McCoy told Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inquirer after practice on Friday.

McCoy is sufficiently fine to be removed from the injury report completely on Saturday, which means he’ll definitely play on Monday.

Listed as probable for the game are safety Nate Allen (knee), tight end Brent Celek (hip), tackle King Dunlap (back), linebacker Akeem Jordan (concussion), tackle Winston Justice (knee), and running back Owen Schmitt (groin).  Defensive end Juqua Parker is doubtful with an ankle injury.
