NFL Injury Report:
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean
McCoy and tight end Brent Celek returned to practice yesterday and there’s a
chance that both players suit up for this weekend’s contest against the
Washington Redskins, reports Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
“There’s a chance he ends up playing for us this week,” coach
Andy Reid said on 610 (WIP-AM) during his radio show. “We’ll see how it goes
with practices this week. He practiced today and did well.”
Celek was cleared to return and
practiced Monday. He is considered likely to return against the Redskins.
Though Celek sustained his head injury
after McCoy, the situation is a little less clear for the dynamic running back.
Considering the Eagles have fallen out of contention and the recent strong
performances they’ve been receiving from rookie reserve Bryce Brown,
Philadelphia could decide to keep McCoy sidelined for their two remaining games
in an effort to protect the running back heading into the offseason.
