After suffering from an unnamed illness all week, McCoy was limited in practice today . He was reported to have lost a few pounds and felt a little woozy. But a source said that there’s no way he won’t play.
On a worse note, offensive lineman Danny Watkins is out along with running back Chris Polk and wide receiver Mardy Gilyard.
But what matters for Eagles’ fans is that our one consistent spark will play against a Cowboys team that had back-to-back close games with two premier teams in the league, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants.
A probable Shady McCoy is much better than a healthy Bryce Brown, and the Birds need whatever they can get. McCoy is putting up some pretty good numbers with one of the worst offensive lines in NFL history.
Also, I imagine Andy Reid will, at least try to, lean on McCoy a little more as we face one of the better pass defenses in the league this year, or he might just continue to go down with his pass-forever-and-always ship.
