Philly.com - [Full Article]

If LeSean McCoy can't recover from his concussion, Bryce Brown could start Monday night.

He has been steady despite his relative inexperience. He ran five times for 35 yards against the Redskins and had two rushes called back on holding penalties.

On his first carry, Brown could have been dropped for a loss when an unblocked DeAngelo Hall raced into the backfield. But the rookie stepped out of a tackle and managed to gain 5 yards. Brown also returned kickoffs for the first time and averaged 22 yards a return.

Fantasy Impact: 

Brown and the Birds take on Carolina this week in a pretty good matchup on Monday night. If you're a McCoy owner, Brown would be a good replacement, especially since the game is Monday night. McCoy has extra time to recover, but it's pretty unlikely he plays this week considering the Eagles don't have much to play for.
