Vick, McCoy remain out; Eagles TE Celek to miss Thursday's game

The SportsXchange

Quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy will not be back in the backfield for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night against Cincinnati and the offense also will be missing tight end Brent Celek.

The team on Wednesay officially ruled out Vick and McCoy, who both are recovering from concussion symptoms. Vick and McCoy passed their concussion tests on Monday and joined the Eagles for non-contact drills Tuesday, but doctors did not clear them for game action.

Celek suffered a concussion in the Eagles' win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Defensive lineman Mike Patterson will sit out again this week after being hospitalized with viral pneumonia.
