All week, the Eagles have been pointing to Friday as a big day for quarterback Michael Vick.
After practicing all week, Vick was to turn things loose at full speed for the first time since injuring his hamstring in order to assess his chances of playing against the Giants on Sunday. Vick participated fully in practice on Friday and it seems like all went well because he’s listed as probable to make his return to the lineup after missing the last two games.
Vick’s last appearance also came against the Giants and he hurt the Giants defense with his feet before his hamstring forced him out of the game. Nick Foles came into the game and hurt the Giants with his arm on the way to a 36-21 Eagles win. Foles has been ruled out with the concussion he suffered last week, so that won’t be an option for the Eagles should Vick have to leave the game again.
Linebacker Jake Knott has also been ruled out for the Eagles while safety Patrick Chung and defensive end Cedric Thornton are both questionable as the Eagles try to end a nine-game home losing streak. Their last home win came against the Giants last September.
