LeSean McCoy RB PHI 6 Days

McCoy (thumb/toe) was present for practice Saturday, the Star-Ledger reports.

McCoy, who had previously been dealing with a toe issue, left Thursday's preseason game with a thumb injury, but his presence at practice Saturday supports the notion that neither ailment is particularly serious. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

While McCoy acknowledged that his right thumb was sore following Thursday's game against the Steelers, the running back suggested that he will "be all right," csnphilly.com reports.

X-rays on McCoy's thumb Thursday came back negative and prior to sustaining the injury, he carried four times for 24 yards, while adding two catches for 26 yards, with a TD. More importantly, the report suggests that he didn't seem hampered by the toe issue that kept him out of practice this past Sunday. We'll track McCoy's status in the coming days, though in the team's fourth preseason game, next Thursday against the Jets, look for him to sit in any case, along with some of the Eagles' other key players.

Updating a previous report, X-rays on McCoy's right thumb came back negative, and he has been diagnosed with a sprained right thumb, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

McCoy won't return to Thursday night's game as a precaution, but he looks to have avoided any serious injuries. It wouldn't be surprising to see him sit the final preseason game as well, but his Week 1 availability currently doesn't appear to be in question.

McCoy underwent an X-ray on his right thumb, and his return to Thursday's game is currently unknown, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.

McCoy had already recorded one touchdown on a Nick Foles screen pass, and carried the ball four times for 24 yards prior to exiting. Not much is know regarding his status at this point, but the team will likely update his condition following the game.

McCoy (toe) is not among the players expected to sit out Thursday's game against the Steelers, the Eagles' official site reports.

It remains to be seen how much action McCoy -- who has been dealing with a toe injury that coach Chip Kelly has downplayed -- is in line to see Thursday, though the running back did indicate Monday that he feels as though could use some game reps at this stage of the preseason.

Coach Chip Kelly has downplayed the left toe injury that kept McCoy out of practice Sunday, ESPN.com reports.

McCoy's quick return to the practice field supports the notion that the running back's toe ailment -- described by McCoy as "a small version of turf toe," is not viewed as a major issue. For his part, when asked about McCoy's status on Tuesday, Kelly replied, "he practiced full yesterday. He's fine. It's not as big an issue as anybody's made it out to be." That said, it remains to be seen if McCoy will see much, if any, action in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, though the running does seem anxious to suit up for that contest, noting Monday, "I need the reps."

McCoy, who returned to the field Monday, missed practice Sunday with what he referred to as "a small version of turf toe," csnphilly.com reports. "[Sunday] it was really, really hurting pretty bad," McCoy noted. "It felt a little better [Monday], so I went for it."

The report notes that McCoy injured the big toe on his left foot during last week's joint practices with the Patriots. Moreover, the running back added that he had an MRI and X-rays on the toe, and that the injury isn't "severe or serious." At this stage, McCoy plans to play Thursday against the Steelers, suggesting that he won't need many reps in the Eagles' key preseason tune-up. While this sounds like an issue that the running back can play through, the obvious hope is that McCoy avoids the sort of setback that could turn this into something that nags him once the regular season gets going.

McCoy, who missed Sunday's practice for an unspecified reason, returned to the field Monday, csnphilly.com reports.

When asked why McCoy didn't practice on Sunday, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur didn't provide much in the way of details, noting that the issue that kept the running back out was "nothing serious to (his) knowledge. Every once in a while, guys miss practice." In any case, there's evidently nothing in play here that would impact McCoy's fantasy value as the season approaches.

McCoy (unspecified reason) did not practice Sunday, ESPN.com reports.

McCoy wasn't mentioned when coach Chip Kelly discussed the Eagles' injured players prior to Sunday's practice, so it's possible that the running back is getting a maintenance day. McCoy recorded 19 rushing yards on six carries, while appearing in three series, during Friday's preseason game against the Patriots.

McCoy gained eight yards on one reception and was stuffed for no gain on his only carry in Friday's preseason opener against the Bears.

McCoy made a token appearance, and then gave way to Darren Sproles, who also didn't stay in the game for long. "Shady" should once again benefit from good coaching, an up-tempo offense and a strong line, but his involvement in the passing game is headed in the wrong direction. His 52 receptions last season, while an impressive number for most running backs, were actually two fewer than he had in just 12 games the previous year. With Sproles now in town, McCoy is unlikely to notice a bounce back in targets or receptions, and a decrease may even be coming. He's also unlikely to match last season's 10.4 yards per catch, though if any running back could hit that mark in consecutive seasons, it would be McCoy (or Jamaal Charles). Of course, this is all kind of nitpicking, as McCoy is an incredibly talented runner with excellent team context who handles most of the goal-line work and is more than capable as a receiver.
