Eagles' LeSean McCoy, Michael Vick ruled out for Thursday night

Matt Sullivan

Despite passing their respective baseline concussion tests, Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy have both been ruled out Thursday's night game against the Bengals. With neither player even back in practice this week, it was always a longshot that they would be ready given the short turnaround.

That said, Michael Vick wasn't going to play anyway because Reid has already named Nick Foles the starter for the rest of the year. LeSean McCoy is another story. If he's healthy, you have to think he'd want to play, but the opportunity to get more snaps for Bryce Brown and preserve McCoy for next season is probably more sensible. Still, don't be surprised if you see McCoy splitting carries with Brown in the last couple weeks of the season.

Also out for tomorrow are Kurt Coleman (chest) Mike Patterson (illness) & Brent Celek (concussion). Chris Polk is still questionable with a toe injury.

Evan Mathis & Jeremy Maclin, who both sat out of practice this week, are listed as probable and will play.
