PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb and linebacker Stewart Bradley did not pass their tests Wednesday as they continue to deal with concussions.

Kolb and Bradley must go through a battery of protocols before returning to the field, in compliance with NFL guidelines. Both failed the second phase of testing, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. They must pass that phase before being evaluated by a specialist.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid said neither would be able to practice until Friday at the earliest, but added that both have made progress.

As a result, Michael Vick will get all the snaps at quarterback Wednesday and Thursday, while Omar Gaither will get Bradley's reps at middle linebacker. Reid said "we'll take Friday as it comes."

Kolb and Bradley were both injured in the first half of Sunday's loss to Green Bay. Vick was crisp in relief of Kolb against the Packers, hitting on 16- of-24 throws for 175 yards and a touchdown in leading Philadelphia back from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter. He ran for another 103 yards on 11 attempts, but Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid said, if healthy, Kolb is still his starter.
