Michael Vick participated in Thursday morning's walkthrough and is expected to practice, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said.

Vick was held out of Wednesday's practice with tender ribs, but Eagles coach Andy Reid said that Vick would still start at quarterback on Sunday against the New York Jets. Vick missed three games with broken ribs before playing at Miami on Sunday.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, despite being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice because of a hamstring strain, said that he is playing Sunday.

"I'm playing, baby," Maclin said.

Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins said that he was going test his groin strain at practice. He said he expects to play Sunday. Defensive end Darryl Tapp (broken rib) said he was getting better. Jenkins and Tapp, along with tackle Todd Herremans (ankle), also didn't practice on Wednesday.
