LeSean McCoy reportedly spent the week leading up to Sunday's game against the Eagles avoiding Chip Kelly's calls. He had a rough breakup with his former head coach when Kelly traded him to the Bills. McCoy seems to have harbored ill feelings, which might have made Sunday's game even more important than the just the playoff implications.
McCoy did not take Sunday's 23-20 loss well. At all.
LeSean McCoy runs into the tunnel before the gun. Doesn't meet former teammates at midfield. #Eagles— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) December 13, 2015
LeSean McCoy ran off the field, first one in the locker room, slammed his helmet against a wall and screamed "F*ck! F*ck" #Bills— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) December 13, 2015
McCoy said "I don't have nothing to say," and sprinted out of the media huddle around him.— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) December 13, 2015
Kelly may not be ready to bury the hatchet, either, contrary to what was reported. Kelly was asked about McCoy after the game, and denied ever calling McCoy.
