Michael Vick will miss the Eagles Sunday night game in San Francisco (as expected), but LeSean McCoy is apparently going to make a surprise return to the field for the primetime affair, despite having a broken rib.

According to an AP report, McCoy, who returned to practice on Friday is "expected to play."

Of course, just because there's some sort of expectation about his playing time doesn't necessarily mean he'll find the field -- whether or not McCoy is listed as "probable" or "questionable" on Philly's Friday injury report will be more telling as to whether the back can go.

If McCoy does play, the Eagles are clearly risking an aggravation of his broken rib, so it stands to reason that he'll be wearing extra padding.

But taking the chance might be worth it -- after Vick left against the Redskins, Kevin Kolb was pressured early/often and looked McCoy's way a lot, as the running back ended the game with 12 catches for 110 yards.

Of course, catching 12 dump-down passes over the middle also creates the small problem of exposing one's ribcage to oncoming linebackers, which may explain why he's so banged up.

McCoy is Brian Westbrook II. He's tough and will be fine. Kolb just doesn't need to hang him out to dry over the middle. If he does, it could cost the Eagles their season. Maybe, that's why Vick was named the starter. Coaches, WR's TE's, and RB's,(I know, I did,too), hate QB's who set them up for the big hit , time after time,(once in a while is fine). Read the darn coverage!!!!
