It’s hard to keep a competitor like Michael Vick off the field if he’s able to, and according to sources Vick is more than ready to go this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
The pro-bowl quarterback took part of Wednesday practice, and was doing well enough that he and the team felt he will be ready to go this Sunday against the Niners. Vick injured his right (non-throwing) hand during last week’s meeting with the New York Giants, which the team originally thought to be broken. It was diagnosed as a deep bone bruise the next day by team doctors, and is still rather swollen and sore.
Vick has throw from 605 yards already this season, completing 59% of his passes for four touchdowns and two interceptions thus far. His importance to this Eagles squad is incalculable, and anytime he isn;t on the field is a time that the Eagles are vulnerable. Let’s hope for the Niners sake he isn’t 100% on Sunday.
