"We're going to miss him. But we've got to move on," McCoy said.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports Woodhead had successful surgery on his broken fibula on Monday, and also had sprained ankle ligaments, according to a source who has spoken to Woodhead. He is expected to make a full recovery and will be back for the 2015 season after signing a three-year extension in the offseason worth $7.5 million.
Woodhead is one of the hardest running backs in the league to replace because of his unique skill set. Woodhead led all NFL running backs last season in receptions and was a perfect fit in San Diego's new hurry-up offense. He's also difficult to replace because the team just lost starter Ryan Mathews to a knee injury that is expected to keep him out another month.
