AR: LeSean McCoy will start, will rotate with Bryce Brown.
— Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) December 19, 2012
Bryce Brown’s dalliance with the starting job in Philadelphia will come to an end when the Eagles host Washington this weekend. Yes, Shady is back.
Before McCoy owners begin to pop the bubbly Andy Reid provided caution, stating McCoy would not be on a normal workload when he returns.
After busting onto the scene in week 12, Brown’s production has dropped off a cliff. 178 and 169 yard performances was followed by just 40 rushing yards in two games. His drop off has been plagued with fumbling issues, losing the ball three times in two weeks.
McCoy owners get their workhorse back just in time for the championships — but beware. We’re not sure how involved he’ll be as Reid aims to ease him back into the lineup. Before the injury McCoy averaged 98.5 yards per game.
