If the first half of football against the Chiefs wasn't ugly enough, the Eagles also lost LeSean McCoy to a right leg injury.

After being tackled late in the 2nd quarter, both Eagles and Chiefs players looked on as McCoy lay on the field in pain while he was being looked at by trainers. He walked off on his own power and headed to the locker room. 

After reportedly getting X-rays at halftime, McCoy jogged back out onto the field and re-joined the team on the sidelines in full uniform. He has not yet re-entered the game.

The Eagles are currently trailing 16-6 and have turned the ball over four times.
