Michael Vick taking first team reps, will start Sunday vs. Giants

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Vick will take first team reps in practice this week.

All signs point to Michael Vick returning to action this week against the New York Giants.

Per a Philly.com report, Vick will start at quarterback for the Eagles on Sunday. Prior to Tuesday's practice, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur confirmed this notion when he announced Vick will be taking first team repetitions in practice.

It's unclear whether if Vick is 100%. Last week, reports indicated the veteran QB could miss time beyond the Cowboys game. Vick is still recovering from a pulled hamstring he suffered in Week 5. Yesterday, it was reported Vick would play against the Giants even if he isn't fully healthy.

Nick Foles, who had been filling in for the injured Vick, is dealing with a concussion that knocked him out of the game vs. Dallas. There hasn't been an update on his status. He can't return to practice until he passes mandatory concussion testing.

Beyond Vick and Foles, the Eagles' don't have any reliable options. Matt Barkley is a rookie, and it certainly showed against the Cowboys. GJ Kinne was signed to the practice squad today as an emergency backup.

Vick is expected to officially announce he will be playing against the Giants after practice on Tuesday.
