Michael Vick missed practice Thursday, further indicating that Vince Young will get his second start as an Eagle Sunday against the Patriots.

There is mixed news on the Eagles wide receivers.

DeSean Jackson was back at practice, a sign that he is well enough to resume some running as he recovers from a bruised foot, but was listed as a partial participant. Jeremy Maclin did not practice.
