Michael Vick lightly threw a football on Tuesday, but he’s not ready to return to Eagles practice.
It’s starting to look like another Vince Young kind of week in Philadelphia. Eagles coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday that Young will take the first team reps at practice Wednesday.
DeSean Jackson is also missing practice with his sore foot. Jeremy Maclin returned to practice despite his injured hamstring and appears on track to play against New England.
Unless Vick can return to practice after breaking two ribs against the Cardinals, Young will have the task of keeping Philadelphia’s season “alive” for another week.
We know that Young had a nice drive against the Giants, but the Patriots will be catching a break to avoid Vick. Young is less likely to take advantage of New England’s weak secondary.
