Eagles RB LeSean McCoy returns to game after leg injury

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

One of the Eagles biggest nightmares flashed before their eyes late in the second quarter of Thursday night's game when star running back LeSean McCoy injured his right leg.

Luckily for the Eagles, McCoy returned to the game early in the third quarter, and all appears to be well.

McCoy was gang-tackled at the end of an 18-yard run late in the second quarter, and it appeared as though linebacker Akeem Jordan landed on his leg.

Though McCoy appeared to be in immense pain, he rose from the turf after a few minutes and jogged off the field. By the time he was on the sideline, though, he was limping, as he headed off to the locker room.

According to reports, McCoy has gotten an X-ray. Apparently, it was negative.
