Concussions keep Vick, McCoy out of action Monday night

Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy have been ruled out for the Eagles' game against Carolina on Monday night because of concussions.

Coach Andy Reid announced the decisions Saturday.

Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said Vick is symptom-free, but McCoy has headaches and dizziness.

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 loss.

McCoy was hurt in the fourth quarter against the Redskins.

Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown will start in place of Vick and McCoy.

Foles will make his second career start at quarterback, and Brown his first NFL at tailback.
