Another Philadelphia Eagles practice, and no sign of LeSean McCoy
The running back continues to battle symptoms from the concussion he suffered in Week 11, and will not suit up Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team announced.
Geoff Mosher of Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reported McCoy has yet to pass through Phase 4 of the NFL's post-concussion testing. The same goes for quarterback Michael Vick, who also won't play.
Both players underwent evaluations Friday. Mosher reported McCoy is close to passing his ImPACT test, but continues to struggle with symptoms at night.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Mike Patterson is in the hospital with viral pneumonia and has been ruled out for Sunday. The team confirmed his illness isn't related to the brain surgery Patterson underwent a year ago.
Vick hasn't taken the field since suffering a head injury against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. He's essentially been shut down for the year in favor of rookie Nick Foles. The three-win Eagles would love to have Shady back in the fold, but there's no reason to rush him. The season is all but lost already.
