“I feel good,” Vick said. “I feel great and ready to play. Nothing feels different. I feel like I’ve worked myself back into good condition and playing shape and I’m ready to go.”

Vick said despite his injury _ and a rib injury last year against the Redskins that cost him 31/2 games _ he won’t play football any differently than he always has.

That means if he wants to run, he’ll run.

“You know, I haven’t even thought about getting hit,” he said. “I play this game to win, not thinking about the consequences of staying in the pocket or running or not or getting hit when I run with the football. So, I think you just have to play with confidence and not try to worry about it and put it in the back of your mind and let things play out for itself.”
