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 Philadelphia Inquirer. "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.
