Eagles' Vick and Maclin Ruled Out For Sunday's Game Against Giants

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- If the Philadelphia Eagles want any hope of salvaging their season, they'll have to do it without some their best weapons on offense this week. The team announced that quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will not play in the team's game Sunday night against the New York Giants.

Vick suffered two broken ribs last week in the team's 21-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It is believed Vick suffered the injury as early as the second play of the game, but he played for the entire game without disclosing the seriousness of the injury. Meanwhile, Maclin is dealing with multiple injuries to his shoulder and hamstring.

Vince Young is expected to make his first start for the Eagles at quarterback, while Riley Cooper is also expected to make his first start of the season in place on the injured Maclin.

Just a year removed from winning rookie of the year, Dillon has now become the youngest champion in series history. In 2012, he's scheduled to drive a full schedule in NASCAR's Nationwide Series.

"The rain came at the right time and the Lord was looking after us, it's really cool to be where we are today," said the 21-year-old grandson of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress.  "You get to spray champagne everywhere. It's the best feeling in the world."
