Vick misses Wednesday afternoon’s practice

AP

Though he participated in a morning walk-through practice, Eagles quarterback Mike Vick was absent for the first official practice of the week on Wednesday afternoon.

The Eagles officially disclosed on their injury report that Vick missed practice due to the concussion that he suffered against the Falcons on Sunday night.  It remains unknown whether Vick will be able to play on Sunday against the Giants.

Also absent were defensive end Juqua Parker (ankle) and Darryl Tapp (pectoral).

Fully participating, despite injuries, were safety Nate Allen (knee), tight end Brent Celek (hip), defensive end Trent Cole (hand), receiver Riley Cooper (hamstring), tight end Clay Harbor (ankle), linebacker Akeem Jordan (shoulder), tackle Winston Justice (knee), linebacker Brian Rolle (quadricep), cornerback Asante Samuel (finger), receiver Steve Smith (knee), and quarterback Vince Young (hamstring).

Young’s ability to fully participate means that he could be the guy who gets the call, if Vick can’t play.  Mike Kafka replaced Vick on Sunday, because Young was still fighting an injury that he suffered in the preseason finale.

UPDATE 5:43 p.m. ET:  The team has not disclosed whether Young or Kafka took the snaps with the first-team offense on Wednesday.  Which means that we won’t know until one of the 53 players on the team yaps about it.

    Still doesn’t add up to one Romo playing with a broken rib.

  2. If Vick doesn’t play it would be a DISGRACE TO THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, just like last when the spineless Eagles management delayed the Vikings game and cost us the Super Bowl, “a nation of wusses” spot on Ed Rendell.

    You’re right. I guarantee you that not a SINGLE guy on that list fumbles a snap for a winning chip-shot field goal in a playoff game.

    Im not a fan of any of you bird teams, but when Vick pointed to the SCOREBOARD, he was right. They were winning when he was in at QB and probably wouldve won if he wouldve been able to continue. It was a fluke injury. Give it a rest… Falcons arent going anywhere with Drew Brees and the Aints holding down that division.

  7. @ waxthese

    Yeah he was right at the time, but obviously the game was far from over. A bit premature and ignorant? Well ignorants a given being that we’re talking about Vick. He got knocked around and eventually out of the game. I couldn’t write it up any better. Oh and they loss…..SCOREBOARD!

    The same Saints that were 2nd in the NFC South last season? Scary.

  8. Um just cause vick pointed at the scoreboard when he left due to injury and then the falcons won doesnt mean anything. Vick had no say in that matter now did he. All he could controle was what the score way when he left and when fans heckled him saying he sucks and what not, he showed them “Oh do I? Well look at the score”. so no vick doesnt look stupid for that. Also made of glass? its a concussion you dumb idiots…lol NFL has rules, Vick wanted to play and thought he could play. You people need to use your heads and THINK

  9. Andy might as well let Vick play.

    A concussion will not change the fact that Vick can’t read a defense. His brain is already too messed up to do that, as he has proven over and over and over again.

    BTW Vick, hows that: “can’t design a defense to stop me” working for ya? RAFLMAO

  10. Blah blah blah. How can you eagle fans talk. Vick turned the ball over 3 times. How can you say you would have won? You had a better chance without him. Don’t talk about anyone else’s QB when your turns the ball over all the time and is hurt all the time. Worst part is that your team dumped 100 million on this Soft garbage QB.

  11. You’re right. I guarantee you that not a SINGLE guy on that list fumbles a snap for a winning chip-shot field goal in a playoff game.

    ===================

    It’s been a while since any of those guys have won a playoff game. Longer than it’s been since Romo won one.

    =========================

    You mean like Vick fumbled away the game against the Falcons a few days ago? Or how he threw the game away on first and 10 from the Packers’ 27 yard line with 44 seconds to go, by throwing to some no-name scrub that was covered like a blanket by a pro bowl DB in his last playoff game?

  13. Um just cause vick pointed at the scoreboard when he left due to injury and then the falcons won doesnt mean anything. Vick had no say in that matter now did he.

    ====================

    Sure he did. He could have NOT pointed to the scoreboard. Of course it means something. It means that Vick is an idiot. But we all knew that already.
