Injury Report: Vick Encouraged

It seems only fitting that there's a Superman logo tattooed on Michael Vick's right hand.

It's the hand that's swollen after it was injured in last Sunday's game against the Giants. The Eagles could use a heroic effort from Vick as they look to shake a two-game losing streak and Wednesday's practice kept the quarterback on pace to play Sunday against the 49ers.

Vick was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He said that he took all of the snaps and was "very encouraged" by what took place in the workout.

"I'm not coming out of the game this week regardless," Vick said. "They're going to have to cart me off the field."

The only players not to practice on Wednesday were wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring), defensive end Juqua Parker (ankle) and cornerback Brandon Hughes (hamstring). Vick did say that the Eagles "should" have Maclin on Sunday.

"I'm looking forward to having Maclin out there," Vick said. "We need everybody."

Defensive end Darryl Tapp (pec strain) was a limited participant since suffering the injury in the Week 1 win over St. Louis. Tapp said that there is a chance that he could play this Sunday.

The following players were also on the injury report, but listed as full participants: safety Nate Allen (knee), wide receiver Riley Cooper (concussion), tackle Winston Justice (knee) and wide receiver Steve Smith (knee).

49ERS UPDATE: RB GORE LIMITED

Running back Frank Gore was limited for the 49ers in Wednesday's practice as they are spending the week in Youngstown, Ohio, after playing the Bengals last Sunday. Gore suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter of the game and tried to fight through it coming in and out of the game.

Kendall Hunter had 38 yards and a touchdown in relief of Gore.

Safety Donte Whitner was also limited with a hip injury. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree was limited due to a foot injury. And guard Mike Iupati was full-go despite dealing with a neck injury.
