LeSean McCoy misses practice again, fantasy season in doubt

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was held out of practice again on Friday as he deals with concussion symptoms. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was held out of practice again on Friday due to the concussion he suffered on Nov. 18. McCoy has not played or practiced since suffering the concussion and is still dealing with symptons and is will not play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

McCoy is in phase 4 of concussion recovery and still has symptoms at night and when active. He has been sent to Pittsburgh for additional testing. Rookie Bryce Brown will get his third straight start at running back.

Fantasy Impact: With McCoy still not ready to practice, Brown playing well in his place, and the Eagles out of the playoff picture, it would not be a surprise if McCoy didn't play for the rest of the season. McCoy racked up 750 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games before getting injured.

Bryce Brown has turned into a fantasy stud with McCoy out. He has rushed for 347 yards and four touchdowns in his two starts, but he has a hard task this week against the top-ranked Bucs' rushing defense.
