Eagles RB LeSean McCoy has a concussion

With the Eagles' season falling apart, their star players are crumbling, too. One week after quarterback Michael Vick was concussed during a game, running back LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 suffered a concussion during the closing stages of Philadelphia's blowout loss to the Redskins on Sunday. McCoy was carted off the field, and a source close to McCoy has told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer that McCoy is "alert, but foggy and tired" -- typical concussion symptoms. The Eagles next play on Nov. 26 versus the Panthers.

Fantasy Analysis:

McCoy will have to pass all of the required tests, but the Eagles have absolutely no reason to hurry him back. I think it's a better than 50-50 bet that McCoy will sit out in Week 12, meaning that McCoy's owners need to go grab his handcuff, Bryce Brown, when they can. He could be the starter against a friendly Carolina run defense.
