LeSean McCoy should be fine for Monday's game

Maybe it’s a good thing for the Philadelphia Eagles that they don’t play until Monday night.

That gives running back LeSean McCoy an extra day to recuperate after missing about 48 hours with the flu earlier this week.

“I’ll be fine for the game,” McCoy said, accoding to Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inqurier.

McCoy returned to practice on Friday and was listed as a full participant. The Eagles will have another short practice today.

“It felt good," McCoy said. "I get bored just staying home resting."

McCoy is coming off a career-high 185 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, and is second in the NFL in rushing. He’s carried the ball 58 times in the last two games as the Eagles have balanced out their attack in advance of their meeting with the Chicago Bears at Lincoln Financial Field.
