The Eagles play two games in the next five days. On Sunday, they’re in Tampa. On Thursday night, they’ll host the Bengals — possibly still on a losing streak so long that the Phillies have won more recently.
For the home game against Cincinnati, the Eagles will have quarterback Mike Vick available. If they want him.
A source with knowledge of the situation says that Vick is ready to play. It’s not known, however, whether the team or the independent neurologist will give him the appropriate clearances to dress.
Vick’s status has been the subject of considerable suspicion, with multiple reports and rumors pointing to the possibility that the Eagles have used Vick’s concussion as a tool for benching him without really benching him.
