Vick to dress Sunday as second or third QB

Michael Vick will dress as a back up against the Titans Sunday, though his exact role this week -- and beyond -- is unclear.

"I can't tell you right now whether he's going to be two or three," on Sunday said head coach Andy Reid. "We'll just see how he does (Saturday), how he feels."

Vick is listed as "questionable" on the Eagles injury report and worked with the scout team at practice today.

Reid said he is "pretty confident" Vick will be back to full strength after the bye week following Sunday's game. If Kevin Kolb has another strong game against the formidable Titans, that would leave Reid with another decision to make on two healthy quarterbacks -- this time, with both playing well. Vick downplayed the choice and emphasized his return to health Friday.

"I can throw the ball, and I can throw it full strength and effectively, so that's a credit to the training staff getting me back into a position where I can go out and perform," Vick said after Friday's practice. "If the situation calls for me to go out and play, then I'll be ready."

As for his role after after the bye week, he said "that's Andy's decision."

"Whatever my role is, and whatever I'm asked to do, I'll do it. I've been on both sides of the fence ... I'm a total team player," he said.

Vick, facing Philadelphia reporters for the first time since the Eagles win over Atlanta, which he spent in the locker room, told the media that arrangement wasn't unusual. "You guys make a big deal about that and act like it's unprecedented, but, you know, stop taking things so serious."

As expected, wide receiver DeSean Jackson (concussion), defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow) and left tackle Jason Peters (knee) will miss Sunday's game. Defensive end Brandon Graham (ankle/illness), who missed Thursday's practice, was back and will play Sunday, Reid said.

UPDATE: The NFL has fined Kevin Kolb $5,000 for his horse collar tackle after an interception against the Falcons. No word on whether he believes the league is turning interception returns into two-hand touch.
