LeSean McCoy injury: Eagles running back still experiencing headaches

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is still experiencing headaches as he tries to recover from a concussion.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is still experiencing headaches after suffering a concussion during the Eagles' loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday. McCoy and quarterback Michael Vick are both in Phase 1 of concussion recovery. Vick is advancing, but McCoy still has a long way to go before being cleared to play on Monday night against the Carolina Panthers.

If McCoy is unable to play, rookie Bryce Brown will get his first start at running back and split time with Dion Lewis. McCoy has 750 yards rushing on 177 carries with two touchdowns as well as 40 receptions for 235 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Brown, a seventh-round pick out of Kansas State, has 32 carries for 141 yards. Lewis, a fifth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh, had 23 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown last season, but has not carried the ball this year.
