LeSean McCoy still in Phase 1 of concussion: Fantasy return not imminent

Rich Schultz

LeSean McCoy is reportedly still in Phase 1 of his concussion, making a return to the Eagles in Week 13 unlikely. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy is still in Phase 1 of his concussion, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. McCoy has been dealing with a concussion since Week 11, and apparently hasn't progressed much from the initial injury suffered against the Washington Redskins.

McCoy's playing status for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys looks doubtful, setting up Bryce Brown to make another start. The rookie rushed for 178 yard and two touchdowns on 19 carries during Monday night's loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Keep an eye on injury reports throughout the week just in case, but you would be wise to start planning your lineup as if McCoy will be out this week. If Brown is somehow available on waivers in your league, he is worth placing an immediate claim for.

The tricky nature of concussions makes it impossible to predict exactly when McCoy will be able to return to action. With fantasy playoffs starting, owners may soon have to decide whether the running back is even worth keeping on the roster.
