Vick To Test Hamstring Friday

Quarterback Michael Vick told reporters following practice on Thursday that he's going to run 100 yards at full speed on Friday to test his injured hamstring.

"I'm just figuring that as of right now it's going to be a positive situation," Vick said.

Vick said that he has done sprints along the sideline at three-quarters speed. On Friday, he will also do some sudden movement to simulate working in the pocket. Vick is not being coy to try and create a competitive advantage by keeping the Giants guessing with regards who is going to start.

"This is not an issue or a situation you can play around with," Vick said. "I'm not up here playing games or blowing smoke. I'm just trying to figure out what's the best situation."

Vick suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Week 5 matchup against the Giants. Vick exited the game with the Eagles leading 16-7. Despite playing less than a half, Vick was the game's leading rusher with 79 yards. The Eagles won 36-21 as Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes in Vick's absence. Foles' status for this Sunday is in doubt after he suffered a concussion in last Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Foles has not been cleared to return to action.

If Vick does play, he has no plans of holding back.

"If I'm out there, I'm full go. I'm going to give it everything I got," Vick said. "You know me. You know how I play. I don't hold anything back. I'm going to give it everything I got. Most importantly, I want to be out there for my teammates. I want to be out there for this organization."
