Next week for Vick

Twelve Eagles won't make the trip to Indianapolis for the second preseason game Thursday against the Colts.

Quarterback Michael Vick, who's not eligible to play in the game, will stay home. He's made enough progress at practice to play in the third and fourth preseason games.

Also not making the trip are running back Brian Westbrook, offensive linemen Shawn Andrews, Stacy Andrews, Jason Peters and Todd Herremans, quarterback Kevin Kolb, defensive ends Trent Cole, Darren Howard and Bryan Smith, linebacker Omar Gaither and cornerback Sheldon Brown.

Westbrook is the healthiest of the group other than Vick.

Tight end Brent Celek (shoulder) should be ready for duty.

Head coach Andy Reid said the starters would play the first half, the reserves the second half.

The starting offensive line from left to right is King Dunlap, Nick Cole, Jamaal Jackson, Max Jean-Gilles and Winston Justice.

Rookie LeSean McCoy will start at running back, Jason Babin at defensive end and Ellis Hobbs at cornerback.

Donovan McNabb, A.J. Feeley and Adam DiMichele are the quarterbacks.
