Although Eagles running back LeSean McCoy hinted after Saturday’s game that he’ll sit out the season finale, Eagles coach Andy Reid says otherwise.
According to the team’s web site, Reid said McCoy and the rest of the starters will play in the season finale Sunday against the Redskins.
“We’re in this thing to play the best football we possibly can,” Reid said.
The Eagles are eliminated from playoff contention, but Reid doesn’t want to give up on the season, and so he’ll apparently tell McCoy to tough it out despite an ankle that’s bothering him. The Eagles want to beat the Redskins to finish the season 8-8, and Reid wants all of his football players playing football.
