A league source tells us that the initial news on Eagles quarterback Mike Vick is encouraging. X-rays on his chest/ribs were negative.
But we’re told that Vick remains in pain, and that he currently doesn’t know whether he’ll miss any games. The team has said an MRI will be conducted on Monday.
If he does miss games, a two-time former Eagles quarterback could be coming back. Jeff Garcia’s agent, Doug Henrickson, told me that Garcia is interested in returning to the NFL, and specifically interested in returning to the Eagles.
It’s unknown whether the Eagles are interested in Garcia, but they should be. The only option behind Kevin Kolb is rookie Mike Kafka.
And as we explained earlier in the day, Garcia can leave the juggernaut Omaha Nighthawks if Commissioner Michael Huyghue approves, and if someone pays the $150,000 buyout fee.
