The Philadelphia Eagles saw quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy both return to the practice field on Tuesday for the first time since suffering concussions. Both players were limited participants in practice and are not expected to play on Thursday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Both Vick and McCoy are in Phase 5 in their concussion recovery after they both passed their imPACT test on Monday. To pass Phase 5 they must be cleared by a neurologist after strenuous exercise with contact. Neither player took part in any contact on Tuesday, but that could be added on Wednesday.
Vick suffered his concussion in the Eagles Nov. 11 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and was replaced by Nick Foles. Coach Andy Reid has already said that Foles will finish out the season as the Eagles starter regardless of Vick's status.
McCoy suffered his concussion in the Eagles Nov. 18 loss to the Washington Redskins and has been replaced as the starter by Bryce Brown, but is expected to return to his starting role when he is cleared to play.
