A sprain, not a break.
That’s the word on tailback LeSean McCoy’s right thumb.
According to the Eagles, X-rays on McCoy’s thumb came back negative, and he has been ruled out of the rest of Thursday’s exhibition against Pittsburgh.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports the injury is a sprain.
McCoy racked up 24 yards rushing on just four carries and caught a 22-yard TD pass in the first quarter before departing to get his thumb examined. He does not figure to play much, if at all, in the team’s final preseason game next Thursday.
The Eagles begin the regular season on Sunday, September 7 vs. Jacksonville.
