LeSean McCoy exits with lower leg injury

McCoy AP

The Eagles are losing to the Chiefs.  And it appeared at first that they’d lost running back LeSean McCoy.

Late in the second quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Chiefs, McCoy gained 18 yards after a nifty jump cut.  But his left leg was caught under a tackler, and McCoy was writhing in pain while grabbing the area above the ankle.

McCoy eventually walked off the field, and he has likewise walked to the locker room, without a limp.

Alex Flanagan of NFL Network reports that McCoy was stoic as he left the playing area, but then showed emotion once he was through the tunnel.

Stay tuned for more updates as they come.

UPDATE 10:14 p.m. ET:  McCoy emerged from the locker room early in the third quarter, and he has re-entered the game.

    Is it wrong that I’m kinda glad because I’m playing against him this week in fantasy?

    High ankle sprain, out 4 weeks

    Hope he is just upset we look terrible and will be ok.

    Glad I drafted Bryce Brown as insurance for McCoy. Sux for tonight though.

    Easily my favorite player. Hope he’s okay

    Fantasy fans – Dont worry – he will be back in the second half.. Mayock texted me

    Twice as many plays, twice the chance of injury. This offense will chew up players on both sides of the ball and Kelly is back to college in two years max.

    Some of the players might be starting to wonder if the NFLPA actually did them a favor by limiting mandatory conditioning by the teams.

    Injury looked bad, but it’s good news that he at least could walk off the field. I really hope he is okay.

    Not sure of the exact definition of a limp, but McCoy was favoring the leg walking back towards the tunnel. My guess is at least an MCL…..

    I’d say high ankle sprain is probably the worst case. It obviously wasn’t a broken leg, knee, achilles or lisfranc thankfully.

    Damn. I’m not an Eagles fan, but I am a McCoy fan. The most exciting RB in the league. Hope it’s nothing serious.

    I hope Lesean is alright. Entertaining player and doesn’t shoot people.

    But you got to admit…

    If Lesean McCoy is going to get injured at a home game, it almost seems appropriate it would happen during the night they honor Donovan McNabb.

  14. jboyxl73 says: Sep 19, 2013 10:07 PM

    Hopefully he’s ok , in other news was McNabb good enough to retire his number with the likes of the great Reggie White or are they just trying to play with Andy Reid ?

    Watching the game, the Browns staff felt bad of the prospect that the Eagles may be without McCoy for awhile, give them a first round pick to make them feel better.

    I have said the same thing about lack of conditioning for 2 years. never have we seen so many injuries…..even non contact. They take away padded practices, limit on field time, etc., and what do they get? SOFT!

    Dude, I was thinking the same thing. Guess there’s a special place for the likes of us in Hell LOL.

    Mayock must not be able to see how horrible Alex Smith had been in the first half. He, like Vick, throws off his back foot because he’s afraid of being hit.

    McCoy, nice soccer injury, poser.

    Where did you get your MD?

    Target?

    Yeah – a 300 lb dude landing on your lower leg at speed doesn’t hurt if you do extra situps

  22. trinityeagle says: Sep 19, 2013 10:24 PM

    It is really pretty pathetic that many of the people on this board were more worried about fantasy football than a real player who could have had a real injury. Shame on you for rooting for injury.

  23. schmitty2 says: Sep 19, 2013 10:30 PM

    @footballchic777, so what you’re saying is with proper conditioning you can avoid getting injured when a 250lb man lands square on your leg like what happened to lesean? that’s what you’re claiming?

  24. bruiseddeath says: Sep 19, 2013 10:54 PM

    Obviously I blew that injury call :) Glad to see McCoy is well!!
