Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has missed the past four games with a concussion he suffered in a loss to the Washington Redskins last month. On Monday afternoon, head coach Andy Reid said that an independent neurologist cleared McCoy and that he could be available to play on Sunday.
Rookie Bryce Brown has filled in for McCoy, and he has done a decent job overall except for an issue with fumbling the football. Brown had almost 350 yards rushing with four touchdowns in his first two starts, but he also fumbled three times during that timeframe.
The Eagles are currently 4-10 and will look to play spoiler in their home finale on Sunday against the 8-6 Washington Redskins.
