As expected, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will start today when the Eagles host the 49ers, even though he has been knocked from the previous two games. Two weeks ago against the Falcons, Vick suffered a neck injury, and last week against the Giants he injured his right hand.

As CBSSports.com Rapid Reporter Kevin Noonan mentioned Friday, Vick will wear a Kevlar glove when he faces San Francisco. "He also joked that he might have his entire uniform made of Kevlar. 'I'd never get hurt,' he said."

After Friday's practice Vick said that "I feel ready to go out and play the game that we love to play and do our jobs and try to get a win. I feel like I've played through worse. I think the most important thing is to go out and try to play and be conscious of protecting (the hand) but at the same time letting it all go."

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports that the glove is manufactured by a company for which Vick already serves as a spokesman. Which prompts PFT's Mike Florio to wonder if using the glove "will conflict with the league’s exclusive equipment and apparel contract."

In other Eagles injury news, it sounds like Vince Young will be the No. 2 quarterback ahead of Mike Kafka, who tossed two late-game interceptions last week. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane calls Young Vick's "likely replacement" in the event Vick has to leave the game.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who battled a balky hamstring earlier in the week, is expected to start against the 49ers.

One  wonders why, if Kevlar is safer and is allowed in cases of injury, that people DON'T always wear it?  What reasoning is it not to be the safest you can be?  That'd be like sending soldiers on dangerous missions without armor, but then if they already got shot letting them have that armor.
