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.
