LeSean McCoy injury: Eagles RB heads to locker room with leg injury

The Philadelphia Eagles have been a turnover machine in the first half of the Thurday Night Football match up against the Kansas City Chiefs, but there is one moment in the first half that had Eagles fans and fantasy football owners more scared than ever before.

Star running back LeSean McCoy went down with a lower leg injury after Kansas City linebacker Akeem Jordan fell on his leg following a ten-yard gain.

McCoy was in some obvious pain and instantly reached for his injured leg, but the good news is that he was able to walk off the field and to the locker room under his own power.

At first, the injury looked very severe based on McCoy’s reaction, but the Eagles may have avoided some real disaster.

While McCoy’s injury doesn’t seem to be as bad as it could have been, that noise you here is fantasy owners still rushing to pick up running back Chris Polk, who will be the team’s primary option in the backfield if McCoy is forced to miss time.

McCoy is currently being evaluated back in the locker room, so we will provide you with updates as more information becomes available.
