Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) said he expects to be ready for the regular season after spraining his right thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Summary

There are only a handful of running backs that could legitimately be considered the best in the league; McCoy is at or near the top of that list. After back-to-back elite seasons in 2010-2011, McCoy took a step back in 2012 and missed time while failing to finish among the top 20 at his position. Those who dismissed his 2012 as an anomaly were handsomely rewarded last year as McCoy became the centerpiece of Chip Kelly's offense. McCoy led the league in rushing yards (1,607), yards per game (100.4), and yards from scrimmage (2,146) to go along with 11 touchdowns and 53 receptions. At 26 years old, McCoy remains in his prime and should be one of the top picks in any draft this year. (May 24)

Eagles | LeSean McCoy feeling good (Sun Aug 24, 11:42 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb, toe) said he will be fine for Week 1 after suffering a thumb injury in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. McCoy also said that a toe injury that kept him out of a practice last week was 'feeling good.'

Our View: The Eagles will ease McCoy along before their first regular season game. His injuries are considered minor, and he should be near full strength by the time their first game comes around.
