Eagles QB Michael Vick and WR Jeremy Maclin Out Against Seahawks
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will not play Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, Adam Schefter reports.
Vick has been suffering with a rib injury since Week 10. The 31-year-old also did not play in the Eagles’ Sunday loss against New England Patriots. On the season, Vick has amassed 2,193 yards, 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Vince Young will get the start in Vick’s place.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin also was out against the Patriots with a shoulder and hamstring injury, which will sideline him for the Seahawks game as well. Maclin has caught 46 passes for 612 yards and four touchdowns this season.
The 4-7 Eagles are third in the NFC East, making this week’s game a must-win for a team that had playoff hopes entering the season.
