Eagles QB Vick misses practice as Giants loom
Friday, November 18, 2011
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Eagles quarterback Michael Vick missed a third consecutive day of practice Friday because of broken ribs, but coach Andy Reid did not rule him out of Sunday's game against the Giants.
Vick broke two ribs during the Eagles' 21-17 loss to the Cardinals Sunday in Philadelphia and has not practiced since. He's officially questionable.
Vick would not have played if the game had been Friday, Reid said.
"He's feeling a little bit better," Reid said. "I'm not going to tell you he's feeling great, but he's feeling a little bit better."
The Giants (6-3) hold a surprising three-game lead over the Eagles (3-6) in the NFC East.
