NFL Injury Report:
Add Brent Celek to
the list of Philadelphia Eagles starters, also including Michael Vick and
LeSean McCoy, dealing with concussions. The tight end sustained a head injury
on the first play from scrimmage during yesterday’s 23-21 win over the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers, reports Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"For him to go out, I'll tell you it was a pretty good
[hit]," coach Andy Reid said. "He's a tough kid."
The Eagles haven’t announced the extent of Celek’s
concussion, but the team is entering a short week as they play the Cincinnati
Bengals on Thursday night making it that much more likely he’s unavailable to
play. The tight end had to be helped off the field after a one-yard catch and
went immediately to the locker room to be examined.
Berman notes that if Celek misses Thursday’s matchup with
the Bengals, “every expected opening day starter on offense except guard Evan
Mathis and fullback Stanley Havili will have missed time because of injuries

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek left Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a concussion and will not return. The injury occurred in the first quarter. Celek joins teammates Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy on the list of Eagles out with concussions.
Going into Sunday afternoon's game, it had been 70 days since the Philadelphia Eagles tasted victory. To put their losing streak into perspective, 69 days ago from Sunday, the Eagles' allies from across the street, the Phillies, had won a game more recently than them.70 days later, the Eagles finally showed up with what they had been missing -- heart.Rookie quarterback Nick...
Philadelphia receiver Jeremy Maclin, who caught nine passes for 104 yards and the game-winning touchdown on 13 targets Sunday against the Buccaneers, is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Cincinnati.Fantasy Spin:Maclin has struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness all season so it's going to be difficult to trust him on four days against the Bengals, but...
Going into Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, there were two things I wanted to see out of the Eagles. First and foremost was improvement out of Nick Foles. The second was improvement from the defense. Win or lose, I didn’t care too much as long as I saw those things.
Let’s start with Foles. Week by week, he is making positive strides. With the announcement that Michael Vick...
The Philadelphia Eagles have had a tough 2012, losing starting quarterback Michael Vick and their last eight games.
But on Sunday, there was a bright spot. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles hit wide receiver Jason Avant for a 20-yard snag in the second quarter of their game in Tampa Bay.
Avant’s incredible body control and slick mitts allowed him to haul in the pass, making him a definite...
Michael Vick may end up being a free agent after the season. Would the Buffalo Bills have interest in signing him if he's available?
It is embarrassing. Whether you are the team with history on your side, or an upstart looking to make history. It is embarrassing. Losing consecutive games and not living up to the potential. No one is immune to it. Every franchise has felt its share of buckling at the knees. The difference is some of the franchises learn how to right the ship. Others get caught up in...
Eagles receiver Jason Avant had a season-high 133 yards on seven receptions Sunday against the Buccaneers.Fantasy Spin:Avant was targeted 12 times, also a season-high. He's been thrown to 17 times over the past two weeks. While we don't recommend starting any member of Philadelphia's passing offense Thursday against the Bengals, Avant could be a solid option in Week 16...
While some may have held out hope that LeSean McCoy would be able to return to the Philadelphia Eagles in time for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after being cleared to practice, it is not going to happen for the star running back, as his concussion symptoms are not completely gone.
McCoy has passed his baseline test that will allow him to return to the practice...

The Philadelphia Eagles now have a more recent win than the Phillies, woohoo! After a long eight-game slide, the hometown birds are finally back in the W column by beating the playoff hopeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rookie QB Nick Foles is certainly impressing everyone from fans, to teammates, to coaches. He looked like a poised veteran when he threw the...
Nice to report a last-second come-from-behind victory for the Eagles...losing eight in a row was starting to wear on me...not to mention the players themselves.
I'm still not sure this road win was a turning point as far as the 2013 season is concerned... but it sure made 2012 a whole lot more digestible.
Jason Avant, the 7th-year WR...
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Philadelphia Eagles scored two touchdowns in the final four minutes -- the last on a 1-yard Nick Foles pass to Jeremy Maclin as time expired -- to overcome the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-21 at Raymond James Stadium. The Eagles converted a fourth-and-5 on a 22-yard pass from Foles to Jason Avant with 16 seconds remaining. On the final play, Maclin sprinted to the...
