Despite suffering a nasty-looking concussion last Sunday when he was thrown into his offensive tackle, it seemed like Michael Vick was headed this way all week. As in Vick, according to ESPN (via PFT), will start today vs. the Giants.

After suffering the concussion when Falcons safety William Moore threw Vick into Todd Herremans’ helmet during the Eagles loss to Atlanta, Vick improved rapidly throughout the week.

By Wednesday, Vick was symptom-free, though the Eagles were still being cautious. "Just because he doesn't have symptoms today doesn't mean he won't have symptoms tomorrow," trainer Rick Burkholder said. "You can't predict." But by Thursday, Vick was back at practice, taking first-team snaps.

And because Vick didn’t regress in the past couple days, he will return today, theoretically giving the Eagles a better chance to win than if they had to give Mike Kafka his first NFL start.

Report: Michael Vick will start

Of course, I'm no doctor, but I'm starting to wonder if Vick ever had a concussion at all.  It seems from the reports available that at no point did he ever show symptoms of it.  Regardless, I hope the docs and team are making the right decision.  In Tony Romo's case, I think they're screwing up by throwing him out there.  A punctured lung?  Fractured rib(s)?  I know he wants to play, but c'mon, that's playing with fire.  Everyone on the Redskins is going to be gunning for those ribs.
