Vick, DeSean won’t practice Wednesday

Mike Kafka, Vince Young, Michael Vick AP

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.

    Refer to 2007 when AJ Feeley almost took down the mighty Patriots 31-28..*18-1

    Did Desean pick another fight with a kicker?

    The Eagles came shockingly close to winning that AJ Feeley game in 2007. If it weren’t for Asante Samuel making that Pick 6 on the Eagles first possession and then another one in the end zone late in the game…….

    VY stinks. If Vick can’t go, I say put Kafka in there.

    The Eagles Qb’s are awful. Teams are catching a break to play either of them. The Eagles defense held the Giants O to 10 points. That’s the only story there. Young was awful.

    The Pats visit to Pennsylvania will end exactly the same way the last one did against the Steelers…with an “L”….the Pats have been a little lucky to catch the Chiefs with an Arena QB and the Jets (who are in free fall) the past two games…prior to that, the Pats scored 20-17-20 against three teams with winning records and Brady and company should have lost all three were it not for a last minute miracle which they couldn’t avert against the Giants…Eagles will pound the ball down their throats with McCoy…

    I don’t much care about the wednesday practice it’s the Friday practice that matters.

    I guess Vick will have plenty of time to abuse a small animal and Desean will do whatever it is that angry midgets do with their free time.

    and this relates to the Eagles, how?

    awwwwwww…the article states how the Patriots are catching a break facing Young…more like the Eagles are facing a break getting the 32nd ranked pass defense in the league this weekend…
    Young will be more than fine…

    Eagles have won one of their last eight games at the Linc.

    Enough about the eiggles they stink !

    the eagles have a terrible o-line, no linebackers, terrible safeties that cant tackle, and no matter who plays qb they turn the ball over 3-5 times a game. if i were andy reid i would run 45 screens to lesean mccoy and pray for the best.
