LeSean McCoy injury update provides good news for Philadelphia Eagles
On Thursday night, the Philadelphia Eagles got a bit of a scare when star running back LeSean McCoy was forced to head back to the locker room following a touchdown in the first quarter of their Week 3 preseason match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
McCoy suffered a thumb injury and needed to undergo x-rays.
For the Philadelphia Eagles front-office, the team’s fans and fantasy football owners around the world, it was a scary moment.
However, there is some great news on the McCoy injury front.
McCoy did not suffer any fractures or ligament damage, but was diagnosed with a sprained thumb.
From Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer:
LeSean McCoy has a sprained thumb, source said. No fractures or torn ligaments but out for the rest of the game. #Eagles

It would not be a surprise to see the Eagles decide to shut down McCoy for the remainder of the preseason as the team prepares for their regular season opener on Sept. 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars at home.
