LeSean McCoy not cleared, will see neurologist on Monday: Fantasy implications

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 has not been cleared to return from his concussion and will see a neurologist on Monday, coach Andy Reid said on Friday. McCoy was carted off the field in Week 11 against the Washington Redskins and has not played since.

Bryce Brown has started at running back in place of McCoy. Brown finished with 34 yards on 16 carries in Thursday night's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Eagles face the Redskins again in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners hoping to get McCoy back for the playoffs should not count on it. Brown will likely start again next week against Washington despite limited productivity.

Brown will likely be a No. 2 fantasy running back in the final weeks of the season.
