LeSean McCoy injury update: Inactive for Thursday night football, fantasy owners continue to wait

G. Newman Lowrance

McCoy was not expected to return this week, but this just makes it official. We break down the fantasy implications.

As expected, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy (concussion) is inactive for Thursday night football against the Cincinnati Bengals. He is joined on the inactive list by Michael Vick (concussion) and Brent Celek (concussion) while Jeremy Maclin (groin) is active and starting.

Bryce Brown will make his fourth straight start for Philadelphia. Brown has 494 yards rushing with four touchdowns on the season, averaging 5.7 yards per carry. McCoy had 750 rushing yards and 235 receiving yards in ten games.

Fantasy Take: McCoy probably won't be healthy enough to contribute to any teams in the fantasy playoffs, which is a shame for the fantasy first round pick. Another lesson in always handcuffing your top players, because Brown has been huge at times in his absence.
