Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 2/53 -- LeSean McCoy, RB, 5-11, 204, Pittsburgh...With Brian Westbrook turning 30 in September -- he was slowed by a knee injury last season -- the Eagles needed to get a back who could step in immediately and share the load with Westbrook. McCoy is a fast, explosive runner who can catch the ball out of the backfield. The biggest concern with him is his blocking; if he can't block well enough to protect the quarterback, he won't get on the field. - by The Sports Xchange

08/12/16 - RB LeSean McCoy may play Saturday, but his time will be very brief against the Colts. Again, Ryan wants to limit McCoy's touches in the preseason.
06/16/16 - RB LeSean McCoy was limited throughout the minicamp due to an ankle injury.
06/15/16 - RB LeSean McCoy, is in shape, but he's battling a nagging ankle injury that is keeping him out of the mini-camp. "I've been telling you guys the wrong things about Shady," Ryan said. "It's actually an ankle, not a hamstring, so that tells you how much I knew. I should've said leg injury like the hockey version and we would've been fine."
McCoy was bothered by injuries last season, and there's no doubt that the Bills are going to take it easy on him in training camp, just as they have throughout the OTAs and now the mini-camp. He has not participated in any of the team drills and has seen only limited reps in 7-on-7.
04/05/16 - RB LeSean McCoy will not face charges for his alleged role in a nightclub fight with two off-duty Philadelphia police officers.
Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced Monday there was "insufficient evidence" to charge McCoy, his friends or the off-duty officers involved in the Feb. 7 incident.
"For the past several weeks my office has worked diligently with Philadelphia Police Department's Central Detectives to investigate this matter and, in the end, there is insufficient evidence to prove that any individual committed a criminal offense," Williams said. "My job is not to decide if anyone acted appropriately or not. My job is to determine if evidence exists to charge any individual with a crime. I do that by looking at all the facts. That is what we did here. My decision today is consistent with my commitment to the citizens of Philadelphia to charge, and only charge, those people who, based on evidence, are guilty of crimes.
"While it is clear a physical altercation took place and that several people were injured, there is insufficient credible evidence to determine which of the participants were the initial aggressor or whether some participants were acting in self-defense or reasonable defense of another."
McCoy could still face discipline from the NFL as the league will conduct its own investigation into the incident.
"The matter remains under review of the Personal Conduct Policy," the league said Monday.
McCoy met with the district attorney on Feb. 23 at the office of McCoy's attorney, Dennis Cogan.
"I never imagined charges being brought against (McCoy) in this case," Cogan told USA TODAY Sports. "I hoped the DA would be responsible and not be subject to political pressure."
McCoy and three friends were investigated after a fight with the off-duty police officers took place at around 2:45 a.m. ET on Feb. 8 at the Recess Lounge in Philadelphia's Old City neighborhood.
