PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Quarterback Michael Vick, still nursing broken ribs, will miss the Philadelphia Eagles' game Thursday at Seattle, the NFL team said Wednesday.

Vick has missed two games since suffering two broken ribs in a game against Arizona. Vince Young has started the games in Vick's place at quarterback. The Eagles, who are 4-7 overall, are 1-1 in those games.

Young has passed for 658 yards the last two weeks, including 400 in a loss Sunday to New England. Young is expected to get the start in quarterback against Seattle.

The Eagles also said wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who has hamstring and shoulder injuries; cornerback Dominique-Cromartie, who has an injured ankle; and linebacker Moise Fokou, who also has an ankle problem, have also been ruled out for Thursday's game.
