Quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin have been ruled out of Thursday's game against Seattle. 

Vince Young will make his third consecutive start at quarterback while Vick is sidelined by broken ribs. Vick threw on the side yesterday, but has not participated in practice.

Maclin, who has shoulder and hamstring injuries, has not practiced. Coach Andy Reid said the hamstring was a bigger concern. 

The Eagles list cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) and LeSean McCoy (toe) as questionable, although McCoy is expected to play. He was liststed as a limited participant in practice all week.

Asomugha was limited yesterday and today after not taking part in Monday's walkthrough. He is expected to be a game-time decision.

Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (thumb) is listed as probable.

Also out are tackle King Dunlap (concussion) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle). Dunlap has yet to pass his baseline testing.

The players who are out will not make the trip to Seattle.
