Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out
quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy, safety Kurt Coleman and
defensive tackle Mike Patterson for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay
Vick and McCoy are both in Phase 4 of the post-concussion process.
Eagles coach Andy Reid announced on Monday that rookie quarterback Nick Foles
will remain the starter for the rest of the season.
Rookie running back Bryce Brown will make his third straight start in place of
McCoy. The Kansas State product has carried the ball 75 times for 488 yards
and four touchdowns in 12 games this season.
Coleman (sternum bruise) will be replaced by Colt Anderson.
Meanwhile, Patterson has been ruled out with what head athletic trainer Rick
Burkholder called "viral pneumonia." Burkholder added that Patterson's
pneumonia has nothing to do with his previous arteriovenous malformation.
