Eagles RB McCoy feeling good after 49ers game

Philly.com - [Full Article]

LeSean McCoy spent most of last week watching his teammates prepare for the 49ers while he stood on the sideline, or in the training room nursing a fractured rib.

But there he was last night, out on the field, fighting through the pain and helping his team win a game it absolutely, positively had to win. With the 4-1 Falcons coming to the Linc next Sunday, and a road battle against the Tennessee Titans right after that, a loss last night would've put the Eagles in a 2-3 hole from which they might not have been able to dig out.

"You gotta give him credit,'' head coach Andy Reid said of McCoy. "He's a tough kid. There was no doubt he was going to play. He went places a lot of people wouldn't go.''

With a flak jacket protecting his injured rib, McCoy rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and had five catches for another 46 yards as the Eagles hung on for a 27-24 win over the Niners.

That's 23 touches and 138 yards from scrimmage.

With a broken rib.
