Eagles QB Kolb out with concussion

continued from page 1

Kolb was horrible in the first half, throwing an interception that was overturned by replay.

Vick played at times like the No. 1 QB he so desperately wants to be. He showed off his former dazzling form on a 31-yard run that led to LeSean McCoy’s 12-yard TD run.

Reid tried to sway talk away from a potential quarterback controversy.

“I’m not looking to the future, I’m trying to get the offense fixed so that we can win some football games here,” Reid said.

Vick was a rare bright spot on an injury-filled day.

Bradley was hurt when his head slammed into teammate Ernie Sims while they both tried to tackle Greg Jennings. Stewart struggled with his balance and collapsed. Like Kolb, he returned to play with a head injury before leaving for good.

“Our doctors and our trainer were on it,” Reid said. “The bottom line is we ended up taking him out.”

Sims said he expected Bradley to play because “he’s a tough player.”

“I felt it,” Sims said of the collision. “I’ve got a big bruise on my thigh. I think he’s going to be all right, though. It’s just a little freak accident.”

Weaver suffered a gruesome knee injury on a rushing play early in the second quarter. His knee was severely twisted on a direct hit and he was down for several minutes. Reid came to Weaver’s side and the fullback was helped off the field by teammates and the training staff.

“That was a very ugly looking injury,” Reid said.

Weaver was selected to the NFC Pro Bowl team last season. He had a career-high 323 yards rushing, 140 yards receiving and four touchdowns in his first season with the Eagles.

Jackson, who tore a left knee ligament at the end of last season, injured his right elbow in the second quarter.

“Normally if it’s torn, you’re out for the year,” Reid said.
