There shouldn't be two of the same flight numbers in the same area. At least domestically, if an inbound is late, they may send the outbound out on time with a different aircraft. This is called stubbing out the flight. So, flight 555 inbound might go out at 555P.

One was approaching ORD and the other had just started its Atlantic crossing. But still, from an AA ops point-of-view, wouldn't that potentially get awkward?

I don't know where the original issue was, whether it was an error on the Flightradar24 website or just erroneous information.

I saw it live for the last 20 minutes up untill landing at LHR. AV herald only mentioned another AA 767 yesterday leaving LHR when slats or flaps couldnt retract. Must have been strange to suddenly have 2 767's that shouldnt have been there.
