Mike Vick’s concussion symptoms could be subsiding quickly.
With the Eagles struggling (again) on offense and defense and rookie quarterback Nick Foles not playing very well, the Eagles no longer have any reason to overstate the condition of Vick following the “significant” concussion suffered last Sunday.
And that’s precisely what the Eagles were doing, we’re told. Though Vick’s concussion definitely was bad enough to keep him from playing on Sunday, a source with knowledge of the situation says Vick could be ready to play next week.
It’s believed that the Eagles applied the “significant” label to justify keeping Vick on ice, in the event that Foles played well. Now that Foles hasn’t played well, we could see Vick back sooner than believed.
Either way, we likely won’t see Vick in Philly after this season — unless the next coach really wants him and Vick is willing to dramatically reduce the money he’s due to earn in 2013.
