Reid: Vick Should Practice Monday

Around four hours after the team returned from Seattle, head coach Andy Reid provided some good news on the quarterback front.

Quarterback Michael Vick is "doing well" with his rib injury after missing his third straight game Thursday. Reid said he expects Vick to practice in some capacity on Monday and barring a setback he should return to the lineup to play the Dolphins. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring), offensive lineman King Dunlap (concussion) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) are "making improvement" with their respective injuries.

Reid confirmed again that special teams ace Colt Anderson tore his ACL in the game. Anderson will undergo season-ending surgery next week. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha suffered a concussion and will continue to be evaluated.

With the Eagles now sitting at 4-8, Reid's focus is on trying to improve the team over the final four games of the season. Reid said that he believed effort was not an issue against Seattle. He added that he felt the focus was there as well.

"When you're losing, you almost push too hard in certain situations," Reid said.

The bottom line, according to Reid, is that the coaches have to put the players in right situations and when guys are in the right situations they have to make the plays. Reid said they are not getting that done on both sides.

Reid did not want to offer any excuses for the reason that the team is in the state that it's in. The four turnovers the Eagles had on offense will "shoot yourself in the foot," Reid said. Looking on defense, Reid knows there is a lot of youth, especially in the middle of the defense.
