McCoy, Vick concussion updates

Philadelphia  Eagles running  back  LeSean McCoy  suffered  a concussion  during his  club's 31-6  loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

McCoy  departed the  game late in the  fourth quarter after absorbing a hit to the  helmet, and Birds head coach Andy Reid confirmed the diagnosis during his brief post-game press conference.

"We were trying to catch up and win the game," was Reid's response when asked why McCoy was kept in the game so late in a blowout loss.

The Pitt product finished the game with 67 yards on six receptions and 45 yards on 15 carries.

"He was in Stage 1...just taking it day-by-day. He's got a bit of a headache right now," Reid added at his customary day-after press conference on Monday.

As for quarterback Michael Vick, he took his scheduled imPACT test on Monday but did not reach his baseline. Reid relayed that trainer Rick Burkholder placed Vick at Stage 1, and also revealed that Vick was in line to start next Monday night against Carolina
