PHILADELPHIA – Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy have been ruled out for the Philadelphia Eagles' game against Cincinnati on Thursday night.
Vick will miss his fifth straight game and McCoy his fourth because of concussions. Both players just returned to practice this week.
Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown will again start at quarterback and running back, respectively.
Tight end Brent Celek also won't play against the Bengals (7-6) because of a concussion. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson (viral pneumonia) and safety Kurt Coleman (chest) also are out.
The Eagles (4-9) snapped an eight-game losing streak with a win over Tampa Bay last Sunday.
