McCoy has not played since suffering a concussion the last time the two teams met, Nov. 18 in FedEx Field. The Eagles will be hoping to play spoiler Sunday in what may be Andy Reid’s last home game as coach of the 4-10 team.
There had been speculation that McCoy would sit out the rest of the season, but Reid said: “When you’re healthy, you play.”
McCoy, who has 177 carries for 750 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games this season, will alternate with rookie Bryce Brown. McCoy has 40 receptions for 235 yards.
Reid wouldn’t say how many quarterbacks would be active. “I can’t tell you numbers,” Reid said (via Philly.com). “I don’t know how many are going to be up on Sunday. But right now, Mike’s the third quarterback.”
Vick, who missed five games with a concussion, was cleared by an independent neurologist last week and practiced. Reid said two weeks ago that Nick Foles would start the rest of the season, with Trent Edwards his backup.
