For relationships, Phase Two involves extra toothbrushes, increased phone call frequency, and walking around naked.

For the concussion-recovery process, Phase Two entails none of those.  Unless the doctor assigned to the case doesn’t really know what he’s doing.

Per Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has progressed to Phase Two.  Vick is now cleared for exercise.  To get there, he had to pass the ImPACT test, which measures brain activity before and after a concussion.

Vick has yet to be cleared to practice or play in a game.  This makes it unlikely that he’ll play on Monday night against the Panthers.  However, Vick has not yet been ruled out.

Final clearance must come from an independent neurologist.
