LeSean McCoy's teammates feel he's the same running back

NJ.com - [Full Article]

The Eagles running game is become such a sensitive subject that LeSean McCoy stormed off the podium this past week when someone asked if he was the same player he used to be.

"Am I the same player? That's for you to figure out," McCoy said before leaving the podium. "That's crazy. Am I the same player? Yeah, I'm the same player.''

That assessment isn't showing up in the box score, but it was backed up by center Jason Kelce on Friday.

"I think LeSean is the same running back as he was last year," Kelce said on 94WIP. "I don’t think he’s changed one bit."

As to why McCoy's average per carry has dropped from 5.1 to 3.7, Kelce said the blame falls on the offensive line.

“Every running back is going to miss a few [holes],” Kelce said. “LeSean isn’t missing anymore [holes] than he did last year...I think the biggest thing is that we haven’t given him the amount of opportunities and the holes that he was given last year."

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy has been hounded by local media as to whether or not he's lost a step after a down season from 2013. He's also none-to-pleased to answer the question. Those who follow the team, for the most part, don't think McCoy has lost anything. The general feeling teams are trying to take away McCoy and make the Eagles beat them with the pass, something Nick Foles has struggled to do this season and Mark Sanchez wasn't great last week against Green Bay. Owners keep waiting for McCoy to bust out but that may not happen if defenses continue to play McCoy the way they apparently have.

Nick Foles cleared to work out

Reports or suggestions that Eagles quarterback Nick Foles missing the remainder of the season due to a broken clavicle might have been premature.

One day after Foles was seen warming up and throwing with the practice squad on the field in Green Bay prior to Sunday's 53-20 Packers victory, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly announced that the quarterback has been cleared to resume working out.

"He can work out now, but it comes down to 'does the bone heal,'" Kelly said Monday. "That's the biggest question. He'll get a re-check at some point in time. They said it's usually three or four weeks before he takes another X-ray. He has not had that done yet.

"Until they get an X-Ray done, he'll continue to work out. Try to stay in shape. He did some running at the hotel in the fitness center early in the morning. He'll continue to do those things to make sure when he does get cleared that the bone is healed, it isn't 'Oh, now we have to take a couple weeks to get in shape.'"

"He's been cleared to workout," Kelly clarified. "But it isn't anything in terms of contact."

Fantasy Impact:

Foles elected not to have surgery when he suffered the injury two weeks ago against the Houston Texans thus leaving the door open to a return this season. Whether or not the clavicle bone has healed by the time Foles' follow up X-Ray takes place appears to be the lone hurdle standing between him and a return to action this season. When that follow up occurs though, remains to be seen. Sanchez has put up solid fantasy numbers in his two games, but it's been a lot of same in terms of turnovers, missed opportunities and leaving plays on the field.

Fantasy Impact:

Foles is expected to miss the next six weeks, at least, with a broken collarbone. Mark Sanchez gets the start tonight and looked pretty good filling in last week against Houston. For what it's worth, he looked very good in the preseason as well. The Birds should go with a heavy dose of the run against the Panthers, but Sanchez is the starter for the foreseeable future and certainly has the potential to give owners similar fantasy production to what Foles has given this season.

Fantasy Impact:

Not a lot of question marks heading into this week's Monday night game. Nick Foles is out for the Eagles and Mark Sanchez gets the start at QB in a pretty good matchup against the Panthers. We expect Sanchez to put up QB2 numbers, but the Eagles are expected to give the Panthers a heavy dose of the run as the Panthers are 27th in allowing fantasy points against RBs.

Eagles QB Mark Sanchez gets in extra work with Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz

Friday, November 7, 2014, 11:51pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

With the Eagles off on both Monday and Tuesday this week, Sanchez got together with rookie receiver Jordan Matthews and tight end Zach Ertz for some on-the-field work. The three spent close to an hour on Monday working on routes and getting their timing down.

"Mark texted me saying he was getting in some extra work," Ertz said. "With the injury to Nick, we wanted to get a rapport down (with Sanchez). I didn't play too many snaps against Houston, so I wanted to come back and get back into the rhythm.

For Ertz, getting his timing down with Sanchez is something that will need to be worked on, as the tight end has much more experience catching the ball from the injured Nick Foles.

Fantasy Impact:

While Matthews' snaps have been pretty consistent lately, Ertz is having trouble getting on the field and it's showing up in the box score. He played a season-low 29% of the snaps in Week 9 and it led to just two targets and just one catch for four yards.
