The Cincinnati Bengals are moving on and so must we. The Philadelphia Eagles won't have their starting tight end on Thursday but could see the return of others.

According to Philadelphia Eagles beat writers, the Philadelphia Eagles will be without tight end Brent Celek this Thursday when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran tight end suffered a concussion on a nasty hit during the first play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

On the other hand Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy have passed their concussion tests and could return to practice after being cleared by an independent neurologist.

It's unknown if either will play this Thursday.

Nick Foles was named the starting quarterback for the rest of the season during Vick's recovery and running back Bryce Brown generated 347 yards rushing during his first two starts (only six yards against the Buccaneers).
