LeSean McCoy considered day-to-day following concussion: Fantasy implications

Rob Carr

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is day-to-day after suffering a concussion in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins and is considered day-to-day, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Reid described the concussion as slight and said it didn't seem as bad as the one suffered a week earlier by quarterback Michael Vick.

McCoy had 45 yards on 15 carries on Sunday against the Redskins and sustained the concussion late in the fourth quarter of the 31-6 loss. The Eagles face the Carolina Panthers in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to know what to make of the Eagles offense right now. The team is already playing without Vick and backup Nick Foles didn't have a great day throwing the ball. Things will only get worse for Philadelphia and fantasy owners if McCoy is out for an extended period of time.

Bryce Brown would likely become the team's starting running back if McCoy can't play in Week 12.
