LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Eagles' RB Expected To Start, According To Report

The Philadelphia Eagles already knew that they would be without Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin tonight against the Seattle Seahawks. The big injury question was then: would running back LeSean McCoy, who had been listed as questionable earlier in the week, be able to go against Seattle?

Jason La Canfora answered that question (via his Twitter account):

Barring a setback in pre-game warmups, LeSean McCoy will start for Eagles tonite on Thursday Night Football on NFL Network.

We'll keep an eye posted for the official inactives list before gametime, but that report from La Canfora sounds like a pretty good indication that McCoy's toe is feeling better. Having McCoy in the lineup will give Vince Young some necessary help as he starts again in place of Vick.
