Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will not return in tonight’s game.
It is not clear when the star back suffered the injury. He was hit hard by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who dropped McCoy for a five-yard loss.
Following the play, McCoy removed his self from the game for a play, then returned on the next possession. On this possession, he caught a 22-yard touchdown from Nick Foles.
After the touchdown, McCoy went into the locker room to get checked out.
UPDATE: Eagles announce RB LeSean McCoy has a sprained thumb and is out for the rest of the game. X-rays were negative. #PITvsPHI
