Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will return to action on Sunday afternoon against the Redskins–the same team that knocked him out of action and caused him to miss the team’s last four games.
It was initially thought that McCoy may sit out the remainder of the season with his team merely playing out the string, but that apparently won’t be the case.
“When you’re healthy, you play,” head coach Andy Reid said regarding the former All-Pro’s return.
The 24-year-old has had a bit of a disappointing season, failing to replicate his monster 2011 campaign. He’s totaled 750 yards on 177 carries–good for 4.2 yards per carry and two touchdowns. He’s also has 40 receptions for 235 yards and three touchdowns.
Rookie Bryce Brown will likely still see a handful of carries as McCoy works his way back into the line up.
