Cox, Kendricks Out Vs. Giants

The Eagles will close out the 2012 season without their top two draft picks as head coach Andy Reid announced Friday that defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychael Kendricks will both miss Sunday's regular season finale against the New York Giants. Both rookies sustained concussions last week in the Eagles' loss to the Washington Redskins and are currently in phase two of the post-concussion protocol.

Leading the Eagles on the field Sunday will be quarterback Michael Vick, who will make his first start since Week 10, when he suffered a concussion against the Dallas Cowboys.

"He's done a nice job (in practice this week). Spinning it pretty good and handling the offense," Reid said. "Look forward to getting him out there."

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who missed practice Thursday because of a knee injury, returned to practice Friday as a full participant. Reid said that Maclin should be "good to go" against the Giants.

UPDATE: In the official injury report, the Eagles also listed tight end Evan Moore (back) as doubtful and running back Chris Polk (toe) as questionable.
