Eagles coach Chip Kelly said quarterback Nick Foles met with trainers again Wednesday, but has not undergone neurological testing, which means he can't progress to the next steps. "Nick's doing better," Kelly said.

Kelly said Michael Vick will again take the majority of the first-team reps in practice today, but Kelly wasn't ready to say anything more than that.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin, however, told reporters in a conference call that he expects to see Vick Sunday.

Kelly said Vick didn't run at 100 percent in Tuesday's light practice.

Injured corner Bradley Fletcher again watched practice, though Fletcher said on Tuesday he plans to play. That's notable because after releasing Jordan Poyer and Shaun Prater, the Eagles have just four corners, including Fletcher. Marcus Burley is on the practice squad.

Kelly said of Vick, "the biggest test for him is how does he bounce back? Where is he from one day to the next day? ... He looks like he's progressing."

Kelly lauded Vick's toughness. "That's one of his truly good qualities, and it can be a bad quality at times," Kelly said. "In that Redskins game, trying to lead block --- you want a quarterback with that mentality, obviously. And I think he's done a better job from a decision-making standpoint; I don't think Mike's taken a lot of really big hits. That's why, for Mike, it's frustrating.
