12:17 PM ET 11.14 | Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has not yet been ruled out for Sunday's Week 11 matchup against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Andy Reid on Wednesday morning. Vick sustained what Reid described as a "significant" concussion during the team's Week 10 loss to Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. Rookie backup Nick Foles replaced Vick in the second quarter after he was forced to leave the game. Reid stated that Vick still requires rest but his headaches have already started to subside. As of this time, Vick has yet to undergo any kind of testing and is still required to go through the league mandated concussion protocol. Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder will give an update on Vick's status later in the week.

Reid had Vick take a dive and fake it, so Foles could be put in, Fat Rex should do the same with Sanchez and Tebone

How is it possible that this many days past no testing has been done ?? That says everything ! No testing means no injury

Neither of those plays looked very serious to me. Maybe there is somthing fishy going on. Vick looked like he'd had enough when he was walking off the field. Of course, getting smashed in the face on every play because of an inept O line will do that to a guy.

Wake me when the melodrama known as the " Dream Team " is finally recognized for what they are; a nightmare. Both Reid and Vick are the main problem. It became a more apparent problem when they sold out McNabb and Kolb and made Vick one of the top 5 most highly paid QB's in the league.

Oh please, Andy. You've got a struggling quarterback with a concussion and a young quarterback ready to play. Do the smart thing: sit Vick, start Foles. For their sakes and the sake of the team.

This is pretty comical. I hope they put Vick in there again. It's fun seeing him get bounced around the field.

Give Vick a rest. Vick needs to be concerned about his health right now and not having to feel that he needs to prove something on a team that's going no where. Just chill man. Let that young boy get in there and mix it up a lil' bit, damn.

What if Vick has amnesia from the concussion? Then he might fall back to his base impulses and pick up some dogs to torture and kill. But it wouldn't be "legitimage torture" because of the amnesia. Win-win for Vick, lose-lose for the dogs.

I agree. Exactly which play did he get his bell rang. Reid backed a loser and ex-con now he's one step away from the unemployment line because of it, and the Eagles are out several million dollars with 3 - 4 years down the crapper for gambling on this low life thug. ConVick played those fools just right.
Come to think of it, didn't he file chapter 13 thereby hosing the tax payers for millions in corporate write offs. Who is the idiot in this story? The whole thing reeks of Las Vegas/Chicago business ethics.

Concussed. That's when you repeatedly cuss about the prospect of Vick playing another game.

Concussed (2): Swearing about injured felons on your team.

Mike Vick asked for more time to study for the exam.

The play they CLAIM he got rung up on didn't include either a shot to the head from the player or a hard headbounce off the turf. His head came through all that fine. Either he got his bell rung on a different play or it's a smokescreen to force the Skins to lose time preparing for Vick.

The Ginger dictator might take offense to someone faking a concussion to get an advantage. He was pretty pissed at Emmanual Saunders for faking a cramp ($50,000 total fine) I wonder what the fine would be for faking a concussion?
