Kurt Coleman took the majority of safety reps at today's practice instead of Jarrad Page, players said, even though Page said he was a full practoce participant, in the wake of suffering a stinger against Buffalo.

This would seem to indicate Coleman has regained the starting job he lost to Page when Coleman missed a tackle, leading to a 74-yard touchdown play in the Giants game.

"That's not my call," Coleman said, when asked if he should have been in there all along. "That's up for the coaches. I go out here every day and I just work hard. They've got to put whatever they feel is the best decision to get us wins ... JP got injured, and I think they're just trying to make the best decisions, and this is it right now."

Meanwhile, Michael Vick didn't want to discuss today's players-only meeting, other than to confirm that it was called by wideout Jason Avant, who was the primary speaker. But apparently, the heat on Reid and the coaching staff was a topic.

"That hurts all of us," Vick said. "That's our coach; he's one of the best in the business, and that's the bottom line. You look at what we've been able to do, from an offensive standpoint, you look at how guys respond. Coach Reid, he can't go out there and hold onto the ball for us. Coach Reid can't go out there and make the throws I need to make. The coach can put us in a good positon, but we've got to make the plays, on offense, defense and special teams."
