PHILADELPHIA - Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to concussions, meaning rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown could be starting in their places against Carolina Monday night.

Coach Andy Reid said Vick, who missed last Sunday's loss at Washington, may start working out later in the week and then undergo the first round of baseline testing to determine his progress. But he is still in Phase I of the NFL's post-concussion process.

McCoy, who was hurt in the fourth quarter against the Redskins, still had a headache as of Wednesday morning, Reid said and will almost certainly miss the Panthers game.

Brown said he hasn't started a regular-season game since his senior year at Wichita East High School in Kansas in 2008.

Another rookie, defensive end Vinny Curry, was told Wednesday morning that he will make his regular-season debut. Curry, a second-round draft pick, was inactive for the first 10 games.
