05:02 PM ET 11.16 | Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tested below the baseline mark on the league mandated concussion test on Friday, according to head trainer Rick Burkholder. Vick had too many symptoms to get past the first phase of testing and was not able to participate in the exercise portion. Burkholder stated that Vick had symptoms all week and that the quarterback was "foggy" in addition to not being "very alert." The trainer added that Vick has been tired, heavy eyed and has not been acting like himself.

Any test designed to measure the brain would show Vick "below baseline".

Glad to see some teams actually know how to diagnose a concussion.

** Even in pre-season Vick seemed to have concussion like symptoms IMO.

And last. Thank good ol Andy for that great O-Line

I still didn't see any hard hits in that game. Maybe Andy took him to the parking lot after the game and slammed his head to the pavement for losing.

I think it was a collective thing, he got hit a few times that his head hit the ground in is "whip" like motion. But he has been pummeled all season. The flak jacket kept his ribs in tact, but ya can't be hit that often with no effect.

Hang up the cleats Michael, before you need help eating and tying your shoes!!!

Better he should have taken him to the parking lot and shot him.
