Eagles prepare for the return of QB Michael Vick
Monday, December 5, 2011
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Eagles are finally getting their quarterback back.
Too little, too late.
Michael Vick, the NFC's starting Pro Bowl quarterback a year ago, returned to practice Monday after missing three games with two broken ribs, and will play this weekend as last-place Philadelphia (4-8) meets the Miami Dolphins (4-8).
"I'll definitely be out there," Vick said. "I feel like I've got to be accountable for my team. I want to be there. You know, I just want to get back to doing what I love to do, and that's playing the game of football. There's nothing in this world like the game. I put my heart and soul into it, man, and I just wish I could have been out there the last three weeks, but it just hasn't panned out that way."
The Eagles were 1-2 without Vick.
