The Philadelphia Eagles can't catch a break.  After losing in their first full game with Nick Foles as their quarterback, the team was at least hoping they'd have the option of going back to Michael Vick.  However, it looks like both Vick and stand-out running back LeSean McCoy will be out on Monday night. Both Vick and McCoy are still in phase one of the NFL's concussion protocol, says Jef McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Neither should be able to move on in testing soon enough to be eligible to play Monday night.  This will be the second week in which Vick will sit out.  McCoy, though, was injured last week against the Washington Redskins. Vick is closing in on phase two of the concussion protocol which would involve more rigorous physical activity.  However, even with moving to the next phase it's all but certain that Foles gets the start Monday.  The rookie quarterback was 22 of 32 passing with one touchdown and one pick. McCoy's loss combined with the loss of Vick hurts the team more.  At least with Vick out, Philadelphia can rely on their running game.  With McCoy out, the Eagles will turn to rookie running back Bryce Brown.  It would be Brown's first NFL start Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.thenflinjuryreport.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Jeff Lurie Should Fire Andy Reid Now if He Insists on Going Back to Vick

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I’ve been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles’ starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be selfish not do so. Before all the Vick lovers come crying, this is not about him.  My reasoning for starting Foles is...

A Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving: What We Can Be Thankful For

It’s true that this 2012 Philadelphia Eagles team has played more like the prey, rather than birds of prey, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought it would be better to take a look at the positive side of things. There hasn’t been much to cheer about this season, unfortunately.  And, we’re facing a future with the most uncertainty since after the 1998 season.  However...
