Earlier today, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy talked about his ankle injury which he sustained against the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 24. McCoy spoke as if his 2011 season is over.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid struck a different tone during a press conference today. He called a report that said McCoy won't play "false" (via Eagles Twitter). Reid also said:
Reid: Shady has a "slight" ankle sprain but should be fine for Sunday

McCoy is only 123 rushing yards away from the team record set by Wilbert Montgomery (1,512) in 1979.
Reid went further regarding his starters' availability for the Eagles final game of the season against the Washington Redskins:
@EaglesInsider: AR: Starters WILL play against the Redskins, we're in this thing to play our best football." #Eagles #NFL (via Eagles Twitter)
