Vick misses practice as Eagles prep

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles quarterback Michael Vick did not practice on Wednesday, but has not yet been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins.

Vick suffered a concussion in the second quarter of a 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys four days ago. Backup Nick Foles, a rookie, took the first-team snaps at Wednesday's practice and would make his first career start should Vick not be able to play.

``Michael's in a good place,'' coach Andy Reid said. ``He's hurting a little bit from the concussion, but he's in a good place. I haven't tried to overburden him right now.''

Foles was 22 of 32 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception in relief of Vick. Those numbers weren't enough to help the Eagles avoid their fifth straight loss, a first in coach Reid's 14 seasons.

``He's going to handle it like he's going,'' Reid said of Foles. ``Whether he does or not, we'll see how that works out.''

Vick was diagnosed with a significant concussion and told to stay home and rest. His headaches are subsiding, Reid says, but the veteran still needs to complete the mandated concussion testing this week. Reid stressed several times on Monday just how badly Vick was hurt.

Asked if he expected Vick to play again this season, Reid said, ``I think so. We've just to see. I don't know that. He hasn't done any of the tests so far.''

Philadelphia and Washington, both 3-6, are tied for last place in the NFC East.

With little to play for this season, the time could be right anyway for Foles to take over and see if he can start to prove he's the QB of the future. Vick struggled most of this season and is no longer the dynamic playmaker he was in Atlanta and early in his Eagles tenure. Foles' performance down the stretch could be a factor in evaluating if Reid deserves to return for a 15th season, though that appears a long shot.

``I have a lot of confidence in him,'' Reid said. ``That's why I brought him here.''
