McCoy has the flu, will play anyway

Wesley Hitt

LeSean McCoy has averaged 4.3 yards per carry so far this season.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been out of practice this week with the flu, but Geoff Mosher at CSNPhilly.com isn't worried. McCoy has a cough and has lost a few pounds, but he is expected to play on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Not only will he play, but McCoy could be in store for a big day. As Mosher points out, McCoy historically does very well against the Cowboys:

History suggests that McCoy will be the weapon of choice for the Eagles against the NFC East rival that their fans most hate. His two best career games have each come against Dallas, including last year's 185 rushing yards and two touchdowns in an Oct. 30 blowout at the Linc.

...

With four backups on the offensive line, and with the passing game still struggling, it only makes sense that the offensive coaches ride Shady on Sunday afternoon for as long as they can.

As Mosher explains, McCoy will be crucial to the Eagles' offensive attack on Sunday. Click here to read the whole story from CSNPhilly.com.
