LeSean McCoy returned to practice Friday and was a limited participant after missing the previous two days because of illness. He is listed as probable and is expected to play Sunday afternoon against the Cowboys.
“He’s getting there,” said Andy Reid. “He looked pretty good today, actually. He looked okay, but we’re just kind of easing him back in. He’s still got a little bit of a cough but he’s getting there.”
McCoy began feeling ill on Tuesday and was forced to sit out Wednesday and Thursday. He does not believe the missed time will hurt him.
“I’m not a rookie. I know my assignments from the blitzes and pickups, the protections, the plays called. I think the coaches trust me in those types of situations,” said McCoy.
Danny Watkins (ankle) was again a spectator at practice and will not play. That means rookie Dennis Kelly is likely to get the start once again at right guard. Chris Polk (toe) and Mardy Gilyard (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday as well.
