LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Eagles Running Back Likely To Play Against Redskins, According To Andy Reid

According to head coach Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy should be ready to play Sunday when they host the Washington Redskins. Despite the Eagles being eliminated from playoff contention after the Giants win over the Jets on Sunday, Reid reinforced that his team is playing to win in the final week of the season and that his starters would play.

Via EaglesInsider:

AR: Starters WILL play against the Redskins, we're in this thing to play our best football.

The definitive nature of Reid's comments is incongruous with what McCoy had said earlier. The Eagles running back, who sprained his ankle in a win over the Cowboys on Sunday, is just 123 yards from breaking Wilbert Montgomery's single season team rushing record and had stated "Montgomery, he's probably smiling right now. I'll get it next year - hopefully."

But Reid indicated that McCoy will be on the field against the Skins:

Reid: Shady has a "slight" ankle sprain but should be fine for Sunday #Eagles
