03:16 PM ET 09.20 | Philadelphia Eagles fans had a bit of a scare in the first half of the team's Thursday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs when star running back LeSean McCoy went down with a lower leg injury, but those concerns were put to rest when he returned to the game in the third quarter and added 92 yards after suffering the injury. After the game, McCoy stated that he suffered a right ankle sprain when he went down in the first half. McCoy finished the game with 158 yards rushing and a touchdown.

He came back and ran for 92 more yards and a TD. They're fine.

...unless you mean in general, which... yes, agreed.

Isn't Vick already hobbled too?

Best not spend it hanging around with Aldon Smith....Of course the pain wouldn't be as noticeable when one has spent the night with booze and pot.

That whole NFC looks like it's in trouble.

Yeah man. Most backs can't rush for 92 yards in a whole game, while at 100%.

Shady's putting that up in one half on a bad ankle.

With that said, I'd prefer they rest him until he's healthy. It's a rebuilding year. No reason to risk permanent damage to a star player during a lost season.

The rest of the NFC looks fine.

The old ankle or hammy strain can take the whole season. Chip seems to be up on progressive training methods so perhaps this will get a chance to be rested and LM can return quickly.

This team is in deep do do.

Especially the further west you go.

They move the ball a lot and have a lot of big plays, but then everything breaks down. I think the wheels are about to fall off this wagon.

They played back-to-back short weeks, 3 games in 11 days, an NFL rarity.

Let's see what the team can do with an actual normal week worth of rest and preparation.

Forgotten in that game is the fact that KC is a good team. They had six pro bowlers last year, now they have a steady, if unspectacular , QB. The most talented 2 win team you will ever find. Now they have a legit HC. Give the other team credit. They can rush a passer and they can cover receivers.

I like Alex Smith. He's never going to be a big numbers QB but he's highly efficient and protects the ball well. In a ball control offense like Kansas City's, he's really all a team needs.

He only threw 5 INTs in each of the last two seasons. And has yet to throw a pick in 2013.

IMO he doesn't get enough credit.
