The Eagles will be down arguably their two best offensive players Monday night vs. the Panthers. Michael Vick (concussion) did not practice on Saturday, and has been ruled out for Week 12. Head Coach Andy Reid also confirmed that backup RB Bryce Brown will start against the Panthers with All-Pro RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) out.
Given the different playing styles of 49ers QBs Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith, it is a good strategy if it can hold up, but based on everything that’s come out of San Fran, it would be quite s surprise to not see Kaepernick as the starting QB when the team heads to New Orleans to take on the Saints.
Vikings WR Percy Harvin has been declared out today vs. the Bears due to an sprained ankle.
Steelers WR Antonio Brown returned to practice after missing two games with a sprained ankle this week, but the Bowl receiver will not play on Sunday against the Browns.
Bears QB Jay Cutler has been cleared to return from concussion, and he will start vs. Vikings.
Packers LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) will not play in Week 12 vs. the Giants.
