Michael Vick Out, Vince Young In For Eagles’ Thursday Night Game
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Vince Young will once again start at quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, as they visit the Seattle Seahawks.
Michael Vick was ruled out today with those broken ribs. He has not practiced all week, and this will be the third straight game he will miss.
The Eagles are 1-1 with Young under center.
Vick not alone sitting this one out. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring and shoulder), cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) and tackle King Dunlap (concussion) will also all be sidelined.
Riley Cooper is expected to replace Maclin at wide receiver.
Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) and running back LeSean McCoy (toe) have both been limited in practice this week, and both are listed as questionable for the Seahawks.
