Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy return to Eagles practice

Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy were back at practice Tuesday after passing their concussion tests the previous day, but their availability for Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals remains uncertain.

Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane said they have not been ruled out yet.

"We're not listing them as out," head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters, according to the team's official website. "They're still very much alive for things and we'll see how they do today and take it day by day."

Vick and McCoy still must be cleared by an independent neurologist and the team doctor before they play. It's highly unlikely that Vick and McCoy will play, but the Eagles haven't made it official yet. With the Eagles playing Thursday, there's only one day left to be fully cleared and get a contact practice in.

There's no reason to rush them back with the Eagles officially eliminated from the playoffs.
