It appears that Brain Westbrook’s health is going to be a question mark again. I thought we were past that but it seems like it’s just never going to happen. Even if it’s something small, it seems as though there is always something.
If Westbrook is unable to play or take the majority of the carries, it poses the question if LeSean McCoy is ready to handle that kind of workload. McCoy showed flashes of huge potential in the preseason but that was only over the span of a few games, and it was the preseason, not the regular season.
I think McCoy is the type of back that can be featured, but I’m not sure if he is ready for that right now. The Chiefs gave up 198 rush yards to the Ravens in Week One but then held the Raiders to only 67 yard on the ground Week Two.
He doesn’t have huge size but there are plenty of running backs who seem to be undersized and have plenty of success. If Westbrook is unable to go, I do think McCoy can fill in and do big things.
What are your thoughts on LeSean McCoy’s abilities?
