Quarterback Michael Vick appeared in the community on Tuesday morning, hosting a United Way Hometown Huddle event as part of the Eagles' Play 60 program at George Wharton Pepper Middle School in Philadelphia, and said he is "getting better every day" and that he hopes to increase his practice activity this week on the scout team.
Vick, subbing for the injured DeSean Jackson, helped as the Eagles and the United Way donated a workout room to the middle school. It was a chance for him to give back and share a memorable experience with youngsters, and take a breather from rehabbing his rib/chest injury.
Still, the idea of playing in Tennessee on Sunday is Vick's aim, even though head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that Kevin Kolb was "likely" to get his third consecutive start.
"I have been improving every day and that's the most important thing," said Vick. "If I'm in there as the No. 2 or 3 guy and called upon, I'm going to go in there and do it and worry about the consequences later. My mind is always into football. I'm trying to get back out there. You've got to prepare that way and train that way."
