After sitting out the past four games due to a concussion, LeSean McCoy will be starting at running back Sunday against the Redskins.

Rookie Bryce Brown filled in for McCoy, doing well in his first two starts with 347 yards and four touchdowns. His next two games were less impressive, with just 40 yards. Brown also fumbled four times in four games. Coach Andy Reid said Brown will rotate in with McCoy on Sunday. The 4-10 Eagles will need McCoy to help upset the 8-6 Redskins, who are currently in a three-way tie for first in the NFC East.
