Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael
Vick and running back LeSean McCoy returned to practice this week from their
respective concussions, but neither will be ready to play when the Eagles meet
the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.
Vick has missed the last four games since sustaining a concussion on Nov. 11
against Dallas, while McCoy hasn't played since Nov. 18 after taking a hard
hit to the head in the fourth quarter of a 31-6 loss to Washington.
Both players passed concussion tests earlier in the week and were cleared to
participate in non-contact drills Tuesday. However, neither Vick nor McCoy has
been cleared by the combination of an independent neurologist and a team
doctor, leaving the pair unable to play Thursday.
The Eagles will also be without tight end Brent Celek (concussion), safety
Kurt Coleman (chest) and defensive tackle Mike Patterson (illness) when they
host the Bengals.
Backup running back Chris Polk (toe) was listed as questionable on the final
injury report, while cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (neck, quadricep), wide
receiver Jeremy Maclin (groin) and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (shoulder) were
all listed as probable for Thursday's tilt.
