LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek did not practice on Thursday as the Eagles prepare for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

McCoy was sent home earlier in the day because of a "stomach flu," Andy Reid said. The Eagles coach said that he didn't anticipate his starting running back missing more than one day of practice.

Rookie Dion Lewis and Ronnie Brown took repetitions in McCoy's place. Lewis missed Sunday's game against Dallas after he was involved in a car accident on the way to Lincoln Financial Field for the game. He said he felt fine.

Who will win Monday night’s game between the 3-4 Eagles and 4-3 Bears?

  • 890 (88.5%)
  • 116 (11.5%)
  • 1006

Celek has a hip bruise, but the Eagles tight end said after practice that he expects to play Monday. Celek is coming off his best game of the season in which he caught seven passes for 94 yards and a touchdown.

Reserve linebacker Akeem Jordan suffered a concussion in the Cowboys game and still has not been cleared to return to practice.

Defensive end Brandon Graham, still on the physically unable to perform list, continues to practice. The Eagles have until Sunday 4 p.m. to decided if they want to activate him for Monday night's game. If they were to activate him they would have to release a player.
