            === Eagles' Jackson headed to IR with fractured ribs ===
 
 Philadelphia,  PA (Sports  Network) - Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean
 Jackson will miss the remainder of the season because of fractured ribs.
 
 Eagles coach Andy Reid said Jackson will be placed on injured reserve.
 
 "He  fractured a  couple ribs up high  in his chest," said Reid Tuesday during
 his day-after game press conference. "He's got multiple fractures."
 
 Jackson  was hurt during the first quarter of Monday's loss to Carolina. He is
 leading the Eagles in receiving with team highs of 45 catches and 700 yards.
 
 The  Eagles have now lost their starting quarterback, top running back and No.
 1 receiver in the last three weeks.
 
 Quarterback  Michael Vick  missed his second straight game Monday because of a
 concussion.  Reid said Vick  still hadn't passed an impact test and was set to
 undergo another on Wednesday.
 
 "I  want Mike to get healthy, I haven't gone beyond that thinking there," said
 Reid  about who  his  starting quarterback  would be  for  next Sunday's  game
 against Dallas.
 
 Vick  was  hurt two weeks  ago against the  Cowboys, while running back LeSean
 McCoy sustained a concussion last week against Washington and sat out Monday's
 game. McCoy's status is also still uncertain.
 
 Nick  Foles has started  the last two games at quarterback and the rookie will
 get  another turn on  Sunday against the Cowboys if Vick is still not ready to
 go.  Bryce Brown  ran for 178 yards with  two scores in his first NFL start on
 Monday in place of McCoy, but also fumbled twice.
 
 Reid  also  said Tuesday that offensive  tackle Jason Peters will be placed on
 injured reserve. Peters was on the reserve/non-football injury list because of
 an Achilles' tendon injury he sustained in the offseason.
