Marcus Vick going to jail


Michael Vick's yonger brother, Marcus, is going to jail for 20 days for violating his probation, according to the Daily Press.

Per the report, Marcus was convicted of driving under the influence, eluding a police officer, and driving on the wrong side of a divided highway last October.

His prison sentence was suspended on the grounds that he followed certain provisions. However, Marcus tested positive for marijuana at a drug screening, did not complete an alcohol counseling program and failed to pay court costs.

Marcus' attorney tells the Daily Press he plans to appeal the sentence.

Marcus is 25 years old.

Michael is eligible to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars, although Andy Reid would not say for certain that he will be on the field.

If you're looking for my take on last night's game, I took a closer look at the Colts' opening drive and what went wrong for the Eagles' defense.

I also just re-watched the first half and will post more thoughts later this morning or early this afternoon.
