LeSean McCoy X-rays negative after injury scare
The Philadelphia Eagles had a semi-nervous moment Thursday night when star running back LeSean McCoy headed to the locker room for X-rays on his thumb. They can now breathe a sigh of relief, as the X-rays came back negative.
McCoy’s thumb is sprained, not broken, and he sat out the remainder of the Eagles’ 31-21 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
While he was in the game, Shady racked up 24 yards rushing, and also caught a 22 yard screen pass for a touchdown. He will most likely see very limited, if any, action in Philadelphia’s preseason finale next week.
The Eagles open the regular season September 7th, when the Jacksonville Jaguars come to town.
