The Philadelphia Eagles have officially confirmed that both QB Michael Vick and RB LeSean McCoy will sit out Monday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers with concussions. As many predicted before the season, Michael Vick’s style of play would lead to injuries from taking too many hits, although having one of the worst offensive lines in football hasn’t helped.

Cam Newton: Michael Vick and I have a rare skill set that is a gift and a curse

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. While many will argue that their comparisons are race related, Newton understands that the comparison stems mostly from the fact that both quarterbacks can make plays with their arm and their legs. Newton says that dual-threat ability has its benefits...

Vick And McCoy Ruled Out For Week 12
