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," CSN Philadelphia reports.

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.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

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.

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

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

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," CSN Philly reports. "[Sunday] it was really, really hurting pretty bad," he noted. "It felt a little better [Monday], so I went for it."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

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 tuneup. 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.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

McCoy was bound to regress from his 20-touchdown 2011, but five scores last year – two rushing – was a bigger letdown than most expected. McCoy missed four games with a concussion and averaged a three-year low 4.2 YPC thanks to a beat-up offensive line and an ineffective passing game. He still averaged more than 100 yards from scrimmage, though, and should be highly productive in new coach Chip Kelly’s spread offense this season. A bigger concern is the emergence of Bryce Brown, who displayed big-play ability in McCoy's absence. The Eagles will use both players, though as the incumbent and better all-around back, McCoy doesn't appear in danger of a dramatic loss in fantasy value. Plus, McCoy is also the better receiver – in only 12 games, he had 67 targets, seventh among running backs.

2012

McCoy had a monster 2011, totaling 1,624 yards and easily leading all backs with 20 touchdowns (five more than any other). After seeing the third-most snaps the year prior and despite sitting out Week 17, McCoy finished with the most snaps among all running backs in football last season. Although he caught 30 fewer balls and saw his receiving yards nearly cut in half compared to 2010, his 14 carries for 20-plus yards led all backs. After getting just 11 attempts at the goal line over his first two years in the league, McCoy got 21 carries there last season, converting nine for scores. He no longer appears to be in danger of being removed from the field in any situation, and the Eagles are certainly capable of providing many scoring opportunities. Head coach Andy Reid has stated he wants to lessen McCoy’s workload, but there are few viable alternatives on the roster, and it’s not like last year’s 273 carries were exorbitant. A healthy year from Michael Vick and a bounce-back campaigns from DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin would likely lead to big offensive production in Philly, and McCoy would benefit. Although with his skills, he’s not overly dependent on team context. McCoy signed a five-year, $45 million contract in May, with $20.8 million guaranteed, so unlike Ray Rice, Maurice Jones-Drew and Matt Forte, he’ll be a happy and willing participant all spring and summer.

2011

After a nondescript rookie campaign, McCoy totaled 1,672 yards with nine touchdowns last year. He gained 5.2 YPC, and his 78 receptions easily led all running backs (and his 592 receiving yards trailed only Arian Foster). There’s some concern about McCoy’s touchdown potential since he received just six goal-line carries, but he also led all backs with 15 targets in the red zone, including four inside the five-yard line. Add those targets in the passing game to his six carries, and you get the same amount of goal-line attempts as Steven Jackson and Matt Forte (and one more than Brandon Jacobs). Moreover, McCoy is highly elusive and explosive, as his five rushes for 40-plus yards led the NFL, so he’s capable of scoring from anywhere on the field. McCoy only received 207 rushing attempts last year, but his 837 snaps tied for the third most among running backs, and that was with him sitting out Week 17 because Philadelphia had nothing to play for. It’s clear the Eagles rely on him heavily, and it’s a safe bet his rushing attempts increase during his third year in the league. McCoy also has the benefit of playing in a terrifically schemed Andy Reid offense that features Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Just 23, McCoy has the upside to finish as the top fantasy back in 2011.

2010

McCoy wasn’t considered a bust during his rookie season, but he was asked to start four games thanks to more injuries from Brian Westbrook, and the organization ultimately came away disappointed in its second-round pick. Still, a 4.1 YPC mark isn‘t awful, and he was never given more than 20 carries in a game, so it’s not like he was truly afforded an opportunity to put up big stats. McCoy is never going to be Westbrook as a receiver, but 40 catches for 308 receiving yards while learning the pro game suggests he could fit quite nicely into Andy Reid’s West Coast Offense. Westbrook is gone, but the team signed Mike Bell during the offseason, so a full workload is hardly guaranteed in 2010. Philly has a lot of playmakers on offense, as Kevin Kolb fits Reid’s preferred WCO even more than the departed Donovan McNabb (and a raw QB could also lead to more rushing attempts), while DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Brent Celek are dangerous weapons as receivers. The Eagles have finished as a top-six scoring offense in three of the past four years, so this is a system with upside. However, Michael Vick’s presence is concerning, since he could become a TD vulture in the red zone. But McCoy impressed during minicamp, showing up slimmer and exhibiting more explosiveness. He’s in the right situation to succeed, so it’s up to him to fulfill that potential.

2009

McCoy totaled 1,793 yards with 21 touchdowns for the University of Pittsburgh last season and possesses a similar skill set to Brian Westbrook, with terrific pass-catching ability. He needs to work on his blocking, but McCoy should immediately become Westbrook’s backup in Philadelphia. Since Westbrook has never played 16 games in a season, there’s a good chance McCoy will get an opportunity at some point, and given the kind of upside that comes with being the lead back in Philadelphia, there’s big potential here. He’s a must handcuff for Westbrook owners.
