Vick partakes in walkthrough, may play Sunday
Question of the Day
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles quarterback Michael Vick took part in a morning walkthrough on Wednesday, and there is a chance he will play against the Giants (1-1) on Sunday.
Vick suffered a concussion in Philadelphia's 35-31 loss to the Falcons in Atlanta on Sunday night, and was forced to leave the game in the second half.
Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder said Vick doesn't have "a whole lot of concussion symptoms," and would undergo further testing, including seeing an independent neurologist in the next day or two.
"Just because he doesn't have symptoms today doesn't mean he won't have symptoms tomorrow," Burkholder said. "You can't predict."
Coach Andy Reid wasn't sure whether Vick would practice in the afternoon.
"It's hard to give you the future because you have to do things the right way and go through the process," Reid said.
Vick threw for a pair of touchdowns for the Eagles (1-1), but couldn't continue after getting spun by a Falcons rusher into one of his teammates, right tackle Todd Herremans. He was replaced by Mike Kafka. Vince Young, who was signed to be the backup, has missed the first two games with a hamstring injury. He's close to returning.
"We're pretty fortunate to have three quarterbacks who can play the game," Reid said. "My message to all three of them was: 'Get ready accordingly.'
Giants coach Tom Coughlin, in his Tuesday conference call with the media, said he expected Vick to play, and that New York was not putting together a different game plan without Vick in it.
Since the NFL instituted new guidelines, only one Eagles player _ wide receiver Jason Avant _ has played the next game after suffering a concussion.
However, Avant had two extra days off because a snow storm postponed Philadelphia's game against Minnesota last December.
"Every situation is different," Avant said. "I got up right away, immediately knew where I was, who hit me, what the score was."
