Michael Vick limited at practice


Michael Vick was at practice on Tuesday but did not participate in 7-on-7 drills. 

“We didn’t want to stress it," Vick said. "We just wanted to take it one day a time. It’s still Tuesday; it’s early. Just trying to get back into a flow, get back into a rhythm, get my legs back under me.”

The Inquirer reported on Monday that Vick will not play Sunday against Tampa Bay. When Chip Kelly spoke later int he day, he said a decision has not been made. When Vick was asked Tuesday whether he would play, he said, “I don’t know. It’s too early to say.”

Vick said he was able to jog at practice and throw and "felt good." He said his pulled hamstring is still tender in spots, but that there "wasn't too much I couldn't do." He said he does not know how late in the week he can go with the uncertainty.

“I have a good understanding of the game plan and what we want to do," Vick said. "The thing is to try to get myself physically in position where I can go out there and do everything I know I’m capable of doing."

Vick said he knows his body better than anybody else, but he does not want to make his hamstring injury worse than it is. He made a goal to play all 16 games this season.

“Good thing is we got a good backup who will be able to step in and do a great job with this team,” Vick said.

Of course, Vick is 33 and on a one-year contract. Every game he doesn't play is an opportunity for Foles to take his job.

“I can't worry about that," Vick said. "I hope Nick plays well. That’s my teammate, a great friend of mine, someone I root for whether it’s now or down the road.”
