McCoy returns to practice after X-ray, MRI on toe

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy wants to rush for 2,000 yards in 2014.  It will be hard to do that if he misses any games due to injury.

His first injury scare has come — and apparently gone — via a toe problem that caused him to miss practice on Sunday.  John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com explains that McCoy returned to practice on Monday, explaining that he was absent due to a “small version of turf toe.”

“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. . . .  [M]y track record, I don’t miss a lot of games, I don’t miss a lot of practices.”

McCoy had an X-ray and an MRI on the toe, which shows that there was sufficient concern about the injury to justify thorough diagnostic testing.  But not enough to result in shutting it down for more than one practice.

For now.  But if McCoy already has a condition through which he needs to push in August, it makes sense to keep an eye on the situation.

    Well if he is that determined to still participate despite the pain, then he’ll probably find a way.

    That is bad news for a running back…it seems those turf toe injuries no matter how small linger on and on.

    Well if he was going to get hurt I would’ve appreciated him doing it last week so that I would’ve known whether to retain him as one of my keepers, too late now.
    I don’t care about the Eagles’ season, only my fantasy team.

    Priorities.

    Non story. Let’s get back to Manzel or Jerry Jones pretending he’s a real boy.

    Man, put the team name or full player’s name in those headlines! Thought it was the Bucs Gerald McCoy…the REAL McCoy…scared the crap out of me.

    No trip to the hospital (for me) required now. Yeah, get well soon, too, LeSean.

    Whew, it’s LeSean, I was worried it was Colt.

    Little guys go down after 5-6 years. These little incidents suddenly take their toll.

    Turf toe. This won’t be the last time we hear about this. And it only gets worse without extended rest.

    Wasn’t last year the first time he played a full season?

  15. zam0854 says: Aug 18, 2014 9:05 PM

    SHADY! There’s a reason why his going #1 in your fantasy leagues boys!!!

    Stop lying to yourselves, the boy has got IT!

    Thought it was Colt McCoy, but he would be out for 2 years—-what a china doll–no heart!

    Without DeSean, teams can line up and beat the crap out of this clown. Eagles — first to worst.

    Is this trolling or just a complete misunderstanding of how football works?
