Reid: Vick Will Play it Cool

Eagles coach Andy Reid said today he doesn't think quarterback Michael Vick will get too keyed up about Sunday's matchup with Donovan McNabb and the Washington Redskins.

"I don't think that's how Mike will be. He's pretty cool by nature," Reid said.

 Reid also said he wasn't worried about other players' reactions.

"They've been in games that have a little bit of hype in them," he said.

Reid said right guard Nick Cole (knee) will be a gametime decision, but indications have been that Cole will play.

"It felt pretty good today," Reid said of Cole, who sat out practice and is listed as "questionable."

Last week, Reggie Wells, acquired just before the season from Arizona, filled in when Cole left the game in the second quarter. Reid's evaluation of Wells' play was lukewarm.

"To learn the offense, then put him on the right side -- I'm not sure that's fair," Reid said.

Wells played left guard most of his career in Arizona.

The NFL Network will air an interview with  Michael Vick done by his former Falcons coasch, Jim Mora Jr., Sunday morning at 9.

"It was emotional," Vick said today.
