LeSean McCoy still not cleared to return, no fantasy value for Week 13

Rob Carr

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy (concussion) has not been cleared to return. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy still has a ways to go before being cleared to return to practice. Team trainer Rick Burkholder said (via CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank) that McCoy remains in stage one of his recovery from the concussion he suffered in Week 11 against the Washington Redskins.

Bryce Brown started in place of McCoy in Monday night's loss to the Carolina Panthers but finished with 178 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The Eagles face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy almost certainly won't play this week and it won't hurt the Eagles to get a better look at Brown as the season winds down.

Assuming McCoy is inactive, Brown should be considered a high-end No. 2 fantasy running back for Week 13.
