Michael Vick Done In Philly

He also said Vick “is still the quarterback” when he’s healthy.

But that could take a while.

Vick still has to go through the NFL’s concussion protocol before he is cleared to practice, let alone play. Reid said Vick suffered the concussion on a 3rd-and-2 incompletion when he was hit by former Eagle Ernie Sims and his head slammed against the turf.

Rookie Nick Foles took over in the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Cowboys, marking the first time he played in an NFL regular-season game. Foles completed 22 of 32 passes for 219 yards with a touchdown, an interception and a lost fumble.

Reid said Foles will get all of the first-team reps in practice Wednesday. If Vick isn’t ready to start testing by then, there’s a good chance that the rookie third-round draft choice will make his first career NFL start Sunday.
