Dan Wetzel:

McCoy to play for Eagles this week vs. Redskins

The SportsXchange

LeSean McCoy will return to the lineup for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday against Washington after missing four games with a concussion.

Meanwhile, quarterback Michael Vick will be the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback behind starter Nick Foles and Trent Edwards and might not be uniform Sunday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday. Vick has sat out five games because of a concussion.

Coach Andy Reid said McCoy will rotate in the backfield with Bryce Brown, but McCoy will start. Reid decided to use McCoy after the four-year veteran told him that he wanted to play before the end of the season.

"I'll keep a close eye on McCoy," Reid said. "It won't be a normal workload like you'd see."

McCoy has rushed for 750 yards on on 177 carries in 10 games this season.

Brown has played in all 14 games and and has 528 yards rushing on 103 carries.
