Eagles officially rule out Stewart Bradley and Kevin Kolb

The Eagles briefly let middle linebacker Stewart Bradley on the field last Sunday after he staggered to the ground following a concussion, but they won’t let him play against the Lions this week.

Eagles coach Andy Reid officially ruled out Bradley and quarterback Kevin Kolb for Week Two.  Both players passed the written portion of their concussion test, and
were meeting with an independent doctor in hopes of getting
cleared for next week.

Omar Gaither will start at middle linebacker, with Michael Vick starting at quarterback.

“It’s not the first time [Vick] has started in the National Football League,” Reid said when asked if he needed to tell Vick anything special.

The bigger question is whether Vick can start for a second time with the Eagles next week if he plays well.  The Eagles could play it safe  by keeping Kolb on the sideline without technically letting Kolb lose the job to injury.

    I know everything is a big conspiracy in your mind, but this is a medical decision. Kolb will go back in as soon as the doctors authorize it.

    The Dog Killer Vick era begins in Philadelphia. Always knew those two would get together.

    Wait, there is a “written portion” of concussion tests? Some of these guys might never be allowed back on the field…Vince Young, etc.

    What disaster is that?

    Does anyone know where I can get a good falafel while in Albuquerque?

    Stick around a while and you’ll probably be able to figure it out…..but it starts with 4 and ends with -12.

    What’s Joe Walsh’s status? In or out?

  21. redscare says: Sep 17, 2010 3:35 PM

    I’m sure Vick’s grateful this game is in Detriot and not in, say, Washington, Baltimore, or New York. But I still expect the Lions to give him more trouble than most seem to be anticipating.
    Eagles come in with everything to lose, while the Lions must have a big chip on their shoulders after last week – something to prove.

    You want to bet your house on that?

  23. Bwa Ha Ha says: Sep 17, 2010 3:48 PM

    QB is still a solid for Philly.
    How many other teams would be happy to be starting Vick when they need him?
    How many would RATHER start Vick than what they have?

  24. titlesong says: Sep 17, 2010 4:07 PM

    Sure….but my house for yours (An El Camino up on blocks) does not seem fair.
    How about we just watch the impending Philly implosion together and keep it friendly?

  25. WeaponX says: Sep 17, 2010 4:07 PM

    All of these Eagle, and Philly haters are a bunch of dumb ass’s. Vick is gonna run for 100 and throw for 200 against the Lions. Probably would be more but the Eagles will be up by 24 by half time. Easiest line ever at 6.5 right now. Free money, Vick vs. Wallace! Come on now. CokeCan, Titlesong, Krow, Chapp go F**k yourselves losers!

    Like him or not, MV is fun to watch. He looks like he’s getting his mojo back. I hope it continues, and I like anuda team in his division.

    Is it just me, or is the absence of florio on all pro-mike vick articles REALLY OBVIOUS?

    Anyone who watched the Eagles game last week vs. the Packers will see that the real loss is Bradley and not Kolb. I like Kolb and think he will be a nice NFL player, but Vick is clearly capable of stepping in for one week.
    However, the Eagles D was dominant with Bradley in the game. Three sacks, two picks and only three points allowed through 1-1/2 quarters of action. The team immediately gave up 10 points in 6 minutes after he went out.
    I’m worried about this Sunday’s game without Stewart and the national media has said nothing about this loss to the Defense.
