LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Philadelphia Eagles' RB Questionable, But Expected To Play

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is questionable for the team's regular season finale against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, but coach Andy Reid said the Pro Bowler is expected to play.

McCoy missed Wednesday's practice after suffering an ankle sprain against the Dallas Cowboys this past weekend, but returned to the field in a limited fashion on Thursday and practiced fully on Friday. McCoy, who has rushed for 1,309 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, needs 203 yards on Sunday to tie the Eagles' single-season rushing record set by Wilbert Montgomery in 1979. He also trails Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jaguars by 128 yards for the NFL rushing title. McCoy says he's going to go after the records.

"Hopefully I can get it. A lot of things have to go right for me to get it, but I'm going to go out and play my heart out. I'm sure my linemen are going to do the same thing. But the main thing is winning and kind of go out on a good note. And it would just be even sweeter to get the record though."
