LeSean McCoy was a full participant in Friday's practice and despite being listed as "questionable," is expected to play in this weekend's season finale against the Washington Redskins. For all of us that are going to watch that game and the 70,000 people who have paid to go to it, seeing our best player is an an unequivocally good thing.
McCoy is a long shot to win the NFL rushing title as he enters week 17 128 yards behind Maurice Jones-Drew. But McCoy says he's going to give it a shot.
"Hopefully I can get it. A lot of things have to go right for me to get it, but I'm going to go out and play my heart out. I'm sure my linemen are going to do the same thing. But the main thing is winning and kind of go out on a good note. And it would just be even sweeter to get the record though."
McCoy is also 208 yards shy of Wilbert Montgomery's single season Eagles rushing record.
The only other injury of note for the Eagles is Asante Samuel, who has been ruled out with a hamstring. As we discussed earlier this week, that means we may have seen Asante's last game as an Eagle.
Of course, not listed on the injury report yet still notable is Kurt Coleman, who was put on IR with a biceps injury. It's only expected to take six weeks to recover and should have no affect on him next season. It does mean that rookie Jaiquwan Jarrett will make his second start. He says he's treating this game as the first step in the competition for a starting job next year.
"Well going into this offseason everyone is going to compete for a starting spot. So that's what I'm going to be doing."
