Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are inactive for the Eagles' game against Carolina because of concussions.
Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown will start in place of Vick and McCoy on Monday night. Foles will make his second career start at quarterback, and Brown his first at tailback.
Vick was injured against Dallas on Nov. 11 and didn't play last week in the Eagles' 31-6 loss to Washington, their sixth straight defeat. McCoy was hurt in the fourth quarter against the Redskins.
Wide receiver Jason Avant misses his second straight game with a hamstring injury.
There are no inactive surprises for the Panthers. Defensive end Antwan Applewhite (hamstring) and wide receiver David Gettis are among the players out for the Panthers.

Cam Newton has been compared to Michael Vick ever since he burst onto the scene at Auburn and led the Tigers to a national championship.

Newton says that dual-threat ability has its benefits...

Philadelphia Eagles fans seem to have reached their boiling point with their team, and in particular head coach Andy Reid.
