Michael Vick still is below the baseline for the ImPACT test that measures cognative funcition after a concussion, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday. Reid said Vick is "improving" and will start at quarterback against the Panthers if he's healthy.

"We'll see how he does this week," Reid said.

Rookie Nick Foles struggled as Vick's replacement on Sunday. Reid saw positives in in Foles' performance, but also saw why Foles is a rookie who was not selected until the third round.

"There were some good things he did and there were some things he could definitely learn from," Reid said. "He made some good throws, some good tight, throws early that I thought were some pretty good plays. But he's a young guy, rookie."
