Former Eagles running LeSean McCoy still has plenty of fans in Philly, including a young girl whose wish came true Sunday before the matchup against Shady’s newest team the Buffalo Bills.
McCoy met with Kaitlyn Wells through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Shady surprised the young fan and took photos with her family. Kaitlyn laughed as she showed Shady she was wearing his Eagles jersey.
"Somebody still loves me around here," McCoy said while grinning.
McCoy also kissed the Eagles' logo before the coin toss and embraced Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie during pregame introductions. He never interacted with Eagles coach Chip Kelly however. After the Eagles defeated the Bills 23 to 20, McCoy walked off the field straight into the locker room.
"I've got nothing to say," McCoy told reporters. "Excuse me."
McCoy, who is the Eagles' all-time leading rusher, received a mixture of boos and cheers from fans at the Linc. It was his first game in Philadelphia since he was traded to Buffalo during the offseason. McCoy got off to a good start, rushing 12 times for 63 yards and totaling 79 yards in the first half. In the second half however the Eagles defense shut him down, holding him to only 11 yards rushing and 30 yards total.
