Vick, McCoy out vs.Carolina

Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are inactive for the Eagles’ game against Carolina because of concussions.

Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown started in place of Vick and McCoy on Monday night. Foles made his second career start at quarterback, and Brown his first at tailback.

Vick was injured against Dallas on Nov. 11 and didn’t play last week in the Eagles’ 31-6 loss to Washington, their sixth straight defeat. McCoy was hurt in the fourth quarter against the Redskins.

Wide receiver Jason Avant missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury, and wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox both left the game with injuries.

Jackson suffered a sternum injury in the first quarter Monday night. Cox suffered a lower back/tailbone injury. X-rays on both players were negative and the team said they would not return.
