Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly says running back LeSean McCoy’s toe is fine after its health became an issue last week during the team’s joint practices with the New England Patriots.

McCoy did not practice Sunday, but returned to the practice field Monday.

“No, he’s fine,” Kelly said to CSNPhilly.com. “He practiced full [Monday]. He’s fine. It’s not as big of an issue as I think anybody has made it out to be. There’s a lot of questions about a toe in August that I think is way overblown.”

McCoy led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,607 yards, earning first team All-Pro honors. He said that Kelly is constantly on him during practice. 

"Coach pushes me to the max more than any other coach I've been around," McCoy said last week. "Coach [Andy] Reid, he pushed me hard, but once I kind of got to a point, he let the veterans go a little bit."

The Eagles' next preseason game is against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday.
