Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy aren't practicing because of concussions and their status for Philadelphia's game against Carolina on Monday night is uncertain. Vick, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, was injured against Dallas on Nov. 11 and missed last week's loss to Washington. McCoy, an All-Pro running back last season, was injured in the final minutes of the 31-6 loss to the Redskins. Coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that both players are still in phase one of the recovery process, but that Vick is closer to returning. Vick joined the team in a meeting and was on the sideline for a morning walkthrough. McCoy is still having headaches. Nick Foles would start for Vick and rookie Bryce Brown would take McCoy's spot. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

The Eagles looked horrible on Sunday, is it time to draft another QB?
