Eagles Limiting LeSean McCoy Usage Next Season?

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid mentioned that he’s considering a lighter workload for RB LeSean McCoy next season in the hopes of extend his shelf life, per Jeff McLane.

McCoy received 273 carries last season to go along with 48 receptions, but he did sit out the team’s final regular season game. There’s no question that McCoy is one of the best running backs in the league so it’s not surprising to see the Eagles consider decreasing his usage as he’s basically irreplaceable for them.

Also related to the Eagles running back position, GM Howie Roseman mentioned that he’s comfortable with Dion Lewis McCoy‘s primary backup.

There’s no question,” Roseman said, via Philadelphia Inquirer. “This is a heck of a player, really productive in college. … Every time he touched the ball [last year] you felt like there was a chance for something really positive to happen.”
