On Thursday, CBSSports.com’s Will Brinson brought us the news that Michael Vick could barely walk because of his broken ribs and that Vince Young likely would start in his place when the Eagles face the Giants.
Coach Andy Reid has maintained he’s hopeful Vick can play and that he could play without practicing if need be, and while there’s no official word on whether Vick will go Sunday, a report in the Wilmington (Del.) News Journal cites a source who says Vick is out.
On Thursday, the Allentown Morning Call tweeted, “Don't care how tough Vick is. He ain't playing Sunday. Just saw him a minute ago. He could barely walk." But still, that was conjuncture. Now, we have an actual report. And later today, we’ll get the injury report that will tell us Vick’s chances of playing Sunday.
So, we’ll continue to wait and see, but for now, it’s not looking especially positive for Vick.
UPDATED (1:08 p.m. ET): Vick is listed as questionable on the injury report, and Reid said today that Vick is feeling better but not great. He also reiterated that Vick could play without practicing all week.
