Vick’s return to Atlanta will dominate headlines this week. But he’s downplaying the magnitude of the game on him personally, and is focusing on trying to get the Eagles to 2-0 for the first time since 2004.

“This is a business trip for us,” Vick said. “Trust me, they’re going to come out and play with an edge. We all know their record at home, they’re a great football team at home and they do some excellent things in the dome. There are going to be some things we’re going to counteract and we’re going to have to be ready to go when we get out there. This is a great opportunity for us to get off to a fast start.”

NOTES: CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie sprained his ankle in the morning walkthrough. He’s day to day. Joselio Hanson would be the nickel cornerback if Rodgers-Cromartie can’t play against the Falcons. … DE Darryl Tapp (pectoral strain) and QB Vince Young (hamstring) didn’t practice. They are also day to day. … LB Akeem Jordan (shoulder) had limited participation in practice.
