The Philadelphia Eagles have announced that running back
LeSean McCoy, who’s returning from a concussion, will start this weekend when
the team takes on the Washington Redskins, reports Jeff McLane of the
"We're all part of the team. It's not a hierarchy that
way," Reid said. "That's not how it works. If you're healthy, you
play. LeSean understands that, our team understands that, and so that's how you
go about business. LeSean wouldn't want it any other way."
Considering the Eagles were eliminated from playoff
contention weeks ago, there is talk around the league that the Eagles should
continue to rest McCoy so as not to worsen the concussion. However, McCoy is
ready and excited to get back on the field.
Still, Reid said McCoy will not see his normal workload this
weekend against the Redskins, as Bryce Brown and Dion Lewis will rotate at
running back. Brown, a rookie, has stepped up nicely in McCoy’s absence.
