Eagles not rushing Vick in practice

ESPN - [Full Article]

Michael Vick was under center and Brian Westbrook in the backfield. Brent Celek took his spot at tight end.

In Vick's ideal scenario, he'd be taking snaps with the Philadelphia Eagles first-team offense in a regular season game, not just a routine preseason practice.

Yet that's all it was. Vick ran the scout team offense on Tuesday, calling plays for Westbrook and other starters who are injured or recovering from injury, and not ready to play in Thursday's preseason game against Indianapolis.

"Best scout team ever," Celek said.

In October and beyond, Vick could be taking snaps with the starters in a game that counts.

"I don't necessarily know where he's going to fit in as a player, where he's going to fit in this offense," Westbrook said.
