Eagles’ Vick Will Miss Thursday NFL Game Against Seahawks With Rib Injury

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will sit out his third straight game tomorrow night against the Seattle Seahawks because of two broken ribs.

Vince Young again will start in place of Vick for the Eagles, who have a 4-7 record heading into the National Football League contest in Seattle, also 4-7. Vick was injured in a Nov. 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Eagles said wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also will miss tomorrow’s game because of injuries.
