“I’m optimistic,” Vick said. “I’ve got a good chance. I can play if I’m 80 (percent).”
Vick missed two games with a hamstring strain, which allowed Nick Foles to get the start in his place. Foles looked great against the Buccaneers and equally as bad against the Cowboys. Vick is clearly their best option at quarterback.
- McLane’s source added that Vick’s hamstring is still not 100 percent and the Eagles won’t know how close he is to returning until Wednesday.
It appears as though the consensus belief is that Vick will play against the Giants next weekend.
Nick Foles put together a poor outing against the Cowboys on Sunday before being forced to leave the game with a concussion. Rookie Matt Barkley stepped in and proceeded to throw some interceptions, so even an 80 percent healthy Vick would probably be an improvement for the Eagles, who now sit one game out of first in the NFC East.
