Andy Reid said Friday that Michael Vick would be the second quarterback after missing the last game against Denver with a bruised quad muscle.
But when the inactives came out this afternoon, Vick was listed as the third quarterback, which means you won't be seeing the Wildcat package with the quarterback in the Eagles' showdown with the Dallas Cowboys today.
The other mild surprise among the inactives was safety Quintin Demps, who will miss his second straight game with a sprained ankle. Demps had hoped to return kickoffs today, but that role will likely go to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin with Macho Harris as the reserve.

For the first time in quite some time, Andy Reid didn't have to update the media on the status of his injured players the Friday before a game. The Eagles are about as healthy as they can be heading into Sunday's showdown at Dallas.
Yes, center Jamaal Jackson is out and that has brought about its own concerns, but Reid doesn't have to worry about any of the players on his active roster being any less than probable for the Cowboys. Quarterback Michael Vick practiced for the second straight day and is ready to go despite a quadriceps bruise. He will be the No. 2 quarterback, Reid said.
"He’s feeling good. He practiced today," Reid said. "We have a couple things in for him. I look forward to getting him back in there and playing.”
