Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said that McCoy is healthy, and not currently on the list to receive treatment for an injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "He's healthy," Kelly said. "He's not on the treatment list. He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him."
McCoy's struggles this season (2.7 YPC) have led to speculation that he's been attempting to play through an injury. Kelly's assertion that his starting running back is healthy is certainly good news, as is the return of tackle Lane Johnson in Week 5 following a four-game suspension to begin the season.

McCoy rushed just 10 times for 17 yards and caught zero passes in Sunday's 26-21 loss at San Francisco.
McCoy did very little for the second straight week, although in this case, Philadelphia didn't have the ball much, possessing it for just 18 minutes. Furthermore, Nick Foles was erratic, completing just 21-of-43 passes for 195 yards. Still, it's surprising that McCoy wasn't involved more, especially as a pass catcher (he wasn't even targeted). The explosive veteran should see more running lanes next week, taking on the Rams at home.

McCoy finished Sunday's game against Washington with 22 rushing yards on 19 carries while failing to catch the two passes thrown to him.
McCoy took a direct hit to the head in the first quarter but was cleared of a concussion rather quickly. Unfortunately, he was unable to do much with his touches and his complete lack of production in the passing game didn't help matters. Despite the struggles, Darren Sproles only finished with two carries, so it's not like McCoy's poor play resulted in fewer touches. He may have a tough time bouncing back in Week 4, as the Eagles will travel to face a 49ers team that is ranked seventh against the run this season.

McCoy (head) was cleared to return to Sunday's game against Washington after departing earlier in the contest, NFL Network's Judy Battista reports.
After taking a hit to the head from cornerback David Amerson late in the first quarter, McCoy was immediately sent to the sideline for a concussion test, but apparently showed no concerning symptoms. Though he missed a chunk of time due to the head injury, he'll still have nearly two and a half quarters to deliver strong numbers to his fantasy owners.

McCoy left Sunday's game against Washington after taking a direct blow to the head from cornerback David Amerson, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McCoy walked off the field under his own power, but the team's training staff immediately took his helmet away from him, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News. He'll be evaluated for a concussion and should be considered questionable to return to the contest.

McCoy had 20 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown, adding four receptions for 23 yards on five targets, in Monday's 30-27 win over the Colts.
Though fellow running back Darren Sproles was the star of the game, McCoy had 20 carries for a second straight week, and was once again active in the passing game. Keep in mind that the Eagles spent most of their first two games trailing, yet still managed to get McCoy 41 total carries. Sproles, meanwhile, is establishing his own fantasy value without cutting into McCoy's.

McCoy had 21 carries for 74 rushing yards and six catches on six targets for 41 receiving yards Sunday against the Jaguars.
The Eagles fell behind 17-0, but still ended up running the ball a fair amount, with Darren Sproles adding 11 carries to McCoy's 21. While McCoy got most of the work, Sproles rattled off a 49-yard touchdown in the third quarter to start the Eagles' comeback. McCoy remains a heavily used running back and while he didn't break the 100-yard rushing mark, he still managed to get over 100 total yards and his first touchdown isn't likely far off.

McCoy (thumb/toe) isn't listed on the Eagles' injury report Wednesday.
McCoy emerged from the final two preseason contests with turf toe and a sore right thumb, but the ailments didn't hinder his ability to take part in drills Wednesday. His opponent Sunday, the Jaguars, is a friendly one, as they allowed 131.8 yards per game last year, good for fourth-most in the league.

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.
