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
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.
