The Chiefs made running back LeSean McCoy a healthy scratch against the Titans on Sunday, and coach Andy Reid explained why after the game.
Reid called Sunday a “load management” day for McCoy.
“LeSean’s not getting any younger, so it’s important I manage him the right way as we go,” Reid told reporters, via Adam Teicher of ESPN.
McCoy, 31, signed with the Chiefs on Sept. 1. He had played 36 percent of the team’s offensive snaps through the first nine games, gaining 500 yards from scrimmage on 92 touches.
