Michael Vick hasn't played for the Eagles in two weeks and he won't suit up for Philadelphia on Thursday in Seattle either, as the Eagles officially ruled the quarterback out for the primetime game against the Seahawks.
Vick's rib injury means that Vince Young will once again start for Philly and it's unlikely that Vick will even travel to Seattle for the short-week game.
Also ruled out for the Eagles Thursday were wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring and shoulder injuries), cornerback Dominiqeu Rodgers-Cromartie and (ankle) tackle King Dunlap.
Running back LeSean McCoy and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha were also listed as questionable on Wednesday's injury report, though McCoy -- now the team's most important weapon on offense -- is expected to play.
In short, Philly hasn't been playing well and they're really banged up. So while heading across the country on a short week is typically a nightmare, perhaps it'll be nice to stay away from home for a game that could potentially anger the already riled up Philadelphia fans.
