Eagles Trainer: Vick Still in “Phase One” of Concussion Recovery
Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said this afternoon that Michael Vick is “not even close” to being able to get back on the field:
“He’s had symptoms all week since the game. He’s had a headache, which has gotten better during the week. He’s foggy. He’s not very alert right now in terms of, he just doesn’t have that energy. He’s tired all the time,” said Burkholder. “He slept a lot. He’s not getting rid of the fatigue. I would consider him heavy-eyed. When you talk to him, he’s just not the Michael Vick I know when he’s healthy.”
Backup QB Nick Foles will get his first pro start against the Redskins on Sunday. More coverage here on our Eagles blog, Birds 24/7.
