The Philadelphia Eagles were without quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy last night against the Carolina Panthers, while wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox sustained injuries during the team’s loss, reports Greg Rosenthal of NFL.com. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a rib cartilage injury against the Eagles, and rookie defensive tackle Fletcher Cox hurt his tailbone. Vick and McCoy missed Monday night’s matchup against the Panthers due to head injuries. It was the second straight game Vick has missed after sustaining a concussion, while it was the first week McCoy was sidelined. Each was replaced in the lineup by a rookie, quarterback Nick Foles and running back Bryce Brown got the start. Jackson (rib) and Cox (tailbone) will each undergo CT scans and other evaluations today to determine the extent of their injuries.
