LeSean McCoy said a "situation" with Sean McDermott was the reason why he didn't start in Week 16's loss to the Patriots.

"Coach, we had a situation, and he was totally right," McCoy said. "It was a private situation. I'm a captain and I gotta be more accountable. Simple as that. He checked me, put me in place. That was it."

McCoy scoffed when reporters asked whether he would still be the featured running back.

"C'mon man," McCoy said Thursday. "Am I the feature back? Am I gonna come off the bench?"
