Although it doesn’t come as much surprise to me, Andy Reid has announced that Michael Vick will see the playing field in the preseason game Thursday against Jacksonville.
At this time it is unknown how much he will play. Reid has a press conference at 12:30 today where we may here more. The starters will be playing into the second half and I’d like to see Vick take the rest of the snaps after Donovan exits. The guy has rust he needs to shake off and this would be a good opportunity to do so.
I am really excited to see if this guy still has the explosiveness he was known for so well before the dog fighting incident. It should be interesting to see how the fans react as he enters the game as well. I’m sure once he breaks out of the pocket and makes that first scamper for a first down the fans will react positively.
Reid’s press conference will be available online at the Eagles website at 12:30.
