PHILADELPHIA - There is a chance that Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy will join quarterback Michael Vick on the sidelines for the rest of the season.
McCoy has yet to pass the ImPACT test after suffering a concussion against Washington on Nov. 18. But even if he does eventually pass it, coach Andy Reid may opt to just keep him on the bench for the final four games in favor of rookie Bryce Brown.
Reid was noncommital Wednesday when asked if McCoy would play again this season. The Eagles are 3-9 entering Sunday's game at Tampa Bay and could officially be eliminated from the playoff race this weekend.
Brown, a seventh-round draft pick, rushed for 178 and 169 yards, respectively, and scored four touchdowns in the last two games. But he also lost three fumbles.
Reid already made that decision regarding Vick earlier this week. Vick, who also has not passed the ImPACT test after getting a concussion against Dallas on Nov. 11, will watch rookie Nick Foles play quarterback for the rest of the season.
Also, safety Kurt Coleman (chest contusion) will likely miss the Buccaneers game. Colt Anderson will take his place.
