Reid: Vick Is Doing Well

On his weekly radio show on SportsRadio 94 WIP Monday evening, head coach Andy Reid said that he had the chance to meet with quarterback Michael Vick, but reiterated his faith in backups Vince Young and Mike Kafka.

"He's doing well. That's a plus," Reid said. "However, I do have a lot of confidence in the other two quarterbacks."

Vick suffered a concussion late in the third quarter of Sunday night's game in Atlanta. He was taken to the locker room for baseline testing and even though he was close to being cleared, the Eagles erred on the side of caution and held him out for the remainder of the game. Kafka came off the bench and completed his first seven passes for 72 yards and nearly rallied the Eagles to a come-from-behind win. Young was inactive due to the hamstring injury that has limited his practice time.

Reid added that he has yet to talk with head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder since meeting with Vick to get his assessment of where the quarterback stands.

"He's doing well from my standpoint," Reid said. "He feels good and we'll just see how all of the tests go as we move on this week."

Earlier this afternoon, Reid said that he would not name a starter should Vick not be able to play. Burkholder said it was too early to make a judgment on whether Vick would be able to play Sunday against the Giants. Vick has to pass a series of tests and be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can return to the practice field.
