Quarterback Michael Vick was limited in Wednesday's practice, although he was a participant for the second consecutive day. Vick is dealing with a hamstring injury. 

There's still no officially word on whether he'll play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it sounds like Nick Foles will start. 

Safety Patrick Chung was a full participant in practice for the first time since sustaining a shoulder injury on Sept. 19. If he's healthy enough to play -- and it appears he will be -- the Eagles will use a safety rotation.
