We’re not sure which outlet first confirmed Michael Vick would start on Sunday, but the badly kept secret officially got in the open on Thursday. Even if the Eagles won’t confirm the stories.
Kevin Kolb face the Lions because of his concussion, but he is making progress. Kolb and middle linebacker Stewart Bradley attended team meetings on Thursday after being sent home from work early on Wednesday.
Bradley was seen doing light exercises in the training room by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Both players will be examined on Friday. Bradley’s status remains somewhat uncertain, although he seems unlikely to play.
The Eagles won’t confirm Vick is the starter yet, but the team did confirm Mike McGlynn will start at center and Omar Gaither will get the call at middle linebacker if Bradley is out.
