By just about all accounts, LeSean McCoy hasn’t been “Shady” yet this season. We’re used to seeing an explosive back who can cut on a dime at a moment’s notice. But because of a hamstring injury sustained during the preseason, he hasn’t quite been what we’re accustomed to seeing. And according to McCoy, the only way to fix that is to sit until he’s 100% healthy.
“As much as I want to go out there and help my team out and play, it’s actually hurting me and my teammates… certain plays that I should be making, I’m not because I can’t physically do it. There’s so much you think about. Coming to this team, the team we have you just want to come out here and perform, so I was trying to fight it off. But, I can’t play through pain. I can, but it’s not doing well for me.”
“One thing I promised myself is I can’t go out there if I’m not 100-percent. So, if it’s this game, or next game — whenever it is, I’m rushing to get back but I’m not playing until I’m 100-percent”
