Michael Vick suffered a concussion on Sunday night in Atlanta, and that put his status for Week 3's game against the Giants in serious jeopardy. Good news for everyone involved -- well, except Tom Coughlin, but he expected it -- since Vick appears prepped to start Sunday, as he's at Eagles practice on Thursday, taking snaps with his helmet on.
Vick was "symptom-free" earlier in the week, but the Eagles wouldn't confirm that he'd play, mainly because of the potential for regression and the possibility that he could display symptoms later.
With the Giants banged up, Andy Reid actually has an interesting quandary on his hands.
As Pat Kirwan notes in our preview below, Reid could always run backup Mike Kafka, who looked good in relief action against the Falcons, out as the starter this week and use Vick only if and win the Eagles struggled.
Of course as Pat also notes, Vick is very likely to start -- Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer correctly points out that Vick returning to practice as early as Thursday is a "clear sign" that Reid intends to play him against the Giants.
