Vick Expects To Be Ready For Dallas

Quarterback Michael Vick was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday and he said after practice on Friday that he thinks that by the time kickoff arrives against Dallas, he will be 100 percent healthy and that the quad injury he suffered against San Francisco won't be an issue.

"I'm doing a lot better. I feel like I made a lot of progress during the week and I'm trying to get to 100 percent. I'm trying to get there. I'm working hard," said Vick. "I was able to get a good jog in, but really haven't had to go out and burst yet. I will, come Sunday. We'll try to get that burst, see how I'm moving around. I'm making progress on a day-to-day basis, so I feel that on Sunday, I'll probably be back to 100 percent."

Head coach Andy Reid said that Vick would be ready to assume the role of the No. 2 quarterback behind Donovan McNabb and that the game plan has a package or two with Vick included.
