Eagles Rule Vick, Asante Samuel Out for Sunday Night

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy (rib) practiced on Friday and is expected to play in Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Quarterback Michael Vick (rib) and cornerback Asante Samuel (concussion) have been ruled out, as has rookie wide receiver Riley Cooper (concussion). None will travel with the team to the Bay Area.

Kevin Kolb will start at quarterback, while Joselio Hanson is expected to get the start at the cornerback spot opposite Ellis Hobbs.

The Eagles add that Max Jean-Gilles will start at right guard, and that practice squad wide receiver Chad Hall will travel with the team and could be signed to the active roster.
