Bryce Brown will start at running back for Philadelphia in place of LeSean McCoy on Sunday against Carolina.
Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Morhinweg confirmed Friday that Brown will make his first career start. McCoy is recovering from a concussion along with quarterback Michael Vick.
"My expectations are very high with Bryce Brown," Morhinweg said, according to The News Journal. "I would expect him to do very well."
Brown has rushed for 141 yards this season in limited duty.
