LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Sprained Ankle Leaves RB Unlikely Against Washington Redskins

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did not discuss the severity of the ankle injury he suffered Saturday night against the Dallas Cowboys, but he strongly indicated that he would not be available on Sunday during the Eagles' season finale against the Washington Redskins.

Just 123 yards away from breaking the team's rushing record of 1,512 yards set by Wilbert Montgomery in 1979, McCoy acted like a man who feared he would not get a chance at history.

"Montgomery, he's probably smiling right now," McCoy said. "I'll get it next year - hopefully."

McCoy rushed for 35 yards on 13 carries against the Cowboys, hurting himself early in the fourth quarter. If McCoy cannot play Sunday against the Redskins, Ronnie Brown would likely receive the majority of carries.

The Eagles don't have much reason to rush McCoy back from injury, since the team has been eliminated from the playoffs.
