Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy Ruled Out vs. Panthers

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick and RB LeSean McCoy have been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. Both are suffering from a concussion. Vick has been dealing with the concussion since Week 10, while McCoy’s concussion was suffered in Week 11.  Michael Vick is reportedly getting better, but McCoy still has a long way to go. Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said today that Vick is in Phase 3 of the NFL’s five stage protocol. He also said Vick should be at Phase 4 by Sunday. However, McCoy is still in Phase 1. McCoy is having headaches, is very fatigued, and is having trouble sleeping. This leads us to assume that it may be a while before McCoy plays.

Rookie QB Nick Foles will continue to start for the Eagles. He struggled last week against the Redskins throwing no TDs and 2 INTs. Meanwhile, rookie Bryce Brown will start at RB. Last week, he had 5 carries for 35 yards.
