Eagles not working out RB or QB

The Eagles are not working out any free agents today, according to a team source, making it appear unlikely that they will sign a back up quarterback or running back before Sunday's game.

The team is thin at quarterback, running back and wide receiver, though it's not clear for how long. Michael Vick has said he expects to be out a maximum of two weeks - though that would be on the short end for his cartilage injury - and the Eagles have still not ruled out running back LeSean McCoy for this weekend, despite a broken rib.

He was hurt in the second quarter against the Redskins but still played the entire game.

The Eagles may need a wide receiver after Riley Cooper suffered a concussion, leaving the team with only three active receivers on the roster.

It seems unlikely that the team would move for a big name, or large contract, at any of the positions. McCoy is not likely to miss significant time and they still have three talented receivers to count on.

Quarterback may be the biggest concern. With Vick almost certainly out, rookie Mike Kafka would back up Kevin Kolb.
