Vick Takes Part In Walkthrough

Quarterback Michael Vick was in good enough shape Wednesday to take part in the team's walkthrough, but despite the positive news the Eagles will continue to take caution with Vick's concussion and prepare all three of their quarterbacks for their game Sunday against the New York Giants.

Head coach Andy Reid said that Vick could potentially practice Wednesday afternoon, but the quarterback will be monitored all the way up until the practice starts.

Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder said that Vick is "doing fine right now" and is not showing any symptoms from the concussion. Since suffering the injury Sunday night, Vick underwent an MRI on Monday which came back negative. Vick also took an ImPACT computer test on Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex which he passed. Vick still has to be cleared by an independent neurologist, who is selected by the NFL, but that meeting could come as soon as today, Burkholder said.

Burkholder said that Vick only has neck and jaw soreness from the hit. Burkholder also made sure to note that Vick's evaluation will be a constant process that will go all the way up to game time.


Reid said that defensive ends Juqua Parker (ankle) and Darryl Tapp (pec) will be the only players to not practice. If neither can play, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins can flex out to end. Tight end Brent Celek underwent an MRI on his back, but Reid said Celek's good to go.


Reid said that the linebackers in the base 4-3 alignment will be the same three players with Casey Matthews, Jamar Chaney and Moise Fokou.
