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.

Maclin was limited in practice Wednesday and was still worried about his separated shoulder and hamstring strain.

Vick has tried to throw with his broken ribs but apparently has not made enough progress to practice.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha left practice early with a left knee injury. Click here to read more.

If Jackson and Maclin are both out Sunday, Chad Hall will return punts said special teams coordinator Bobby April.
