Eagles running back LeSean McCoy practiced Monday, but that doesn't mean he is entirely healthy. McCoy said he has a "small version of turf toe" after he injured the big toe on his left foot during a joint practice with the Patriots last week.
McCoy underwent an MRI and an X-ray on the toe, which he said was "really, really hurting pretty bad" on Sunday. He also has no problem taking some time off if the pain gets too intense.
"If it hurts too much, I'll shut it down," McCoy said. "I warmed up [Monday] and it felt good. I can feel it still, but I pushed through it. In this league, you have to learn how to play through pain if you can."
McCoy said he expects to play Thursday versus the Steelers, but he likely won't get many reps.
So, this isn't a major concern at the moment, but it is definitely something to keep an eye on. Turf toe is a nagging injury that needs rest to heal, and McCoy risks making it worse by playing on it. Let's see how long it persists. I am still drafting McCoy as a top-three RB. He has played in at least 15 games in four of his five pro seasons. He missed four weeks in 2012 due to a concussion.
