Five Eagles Likely To Miss Battle With BengalsBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, General News, News Wednesday, December 12th, 2012
One of the shortcomings of playing on Thursday is that you don’t have enough time to recover from injuries suffered on Sunday. The Birds are likely to have five players miss the Thursday night game against Cincinnati. It’s not that big of a deal because the most important aspect of these games is the participation of the team’s young players.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy were at the Eagles practice yesterday, but it’s unlikely that they will play in tomorrow night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Vick threw the ball some yesterday and McCoy ran around a bit, but they haven’t been cleared to play as of yet and there’s very little chance that they will play.
Joining Vick and McCoy in the group of players who won’t play tomorrow night is tight end Brent Celek. The Birds number one tight end suffered a concussion on the first play of the game versus Tampa Bay. He’s already been ruled of the battle against the Bengals. That will leave the Birds with only one tight end, Clay Harbor. If he were to go down, it would leave the Eagles without a tight end.
There’s been a bug going around the team and defensive tackle Mike Patterson has it and will miss the Thursday night game as well. been ill and will
Eagles safety Kurt Coleman has a sternum injury, which caused him to miss the Buccaneers game. He’s getting better, but he’s not quite ready to play, so he’ll miss the Bengals game as well.
Again, that’s five Eagles players who will not play against Cincinnati. It will mean more playing time for the youngsters, which isn’t a bad thing.
