Reid Updates Vick, McCoy Injuries

Head coach Andy Reid announced Monday afternoon that quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are at Stage 1 in the recovery process as both players are healing from concussions.

McCoy suffered his concussion late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins. Reid said that McCoy has a "bit of a headache." The team will take it day-by-day with McCoy and follow the concussion protocol.

Reid said that while he wished McCoy did not get hurt; he does not regret keeping him in the game despite the fact that the Eagles were trailing 31-6 with 1:58 left in the game.

Vick incurred his concussion a week earlier against Dallas and missed Sunday's game against Washington. Vick is improving and took the ImPACT test, but is still not at baseline. Reid said that he would be the starter next Monday night against Carolina, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to play from a health standpoint.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper suffered a knee inflammation and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins has a foot sprain, but Reid said both players should be OK. Wide receivers Jason Avant and Mardy Gilyard missed the game as both players are dealing with hamstring strains. Running back Chris Polk continues to recover from a toe sprain that kept him out of the game as well.
