Three days after rushing the ball only eight times, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was outspoken about the role he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.
"I feel like this game, I need to put the offense on my back," McCoy said Wednesday. "I want to roll, I want to get going. I think me and the guys up front, we've got to set the tone."
McCoy's owners would also like to see him get a big workload. The only concern is that the Eagles may rest their players for a portion of the game if the Cowboys beat the Redskins earlier in the day. HC Chip Kelly has said that they won't rest, but he didn't say they would play a full game, either. It's something to consider when setting rosters this week.
