Michael Vick will not face NFL suspension

Philadelphia Daily News - [Full Article]

The NFL has completed its investigation into the shooting at Michael Vick's birthday party last month in Virginia Beach and he has been cleared to play, a league spokesman told the Daily News today.

In an email, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, "there is no change in his playing status."

The league could have disciplined Vick under the personal conduct policy even though police have said Vick will not be charged. Vick's attorney has said he was gone from the scene before the shooting took place.

Vick reportedly met with comissioner Roger Goodell, with Goodell urging Vick to tighten his circle to family and close friends. The NFL has said it will not comment on what it deems private conversations between players and Goodell.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hopefully this will end the speculation regarding the Eagles releasing Vick. That would leave Mike Kafka as the Eagles only option behind Kevin Kolb. As we have stressed here for months now, Vick wont see enough snaps to merit drafting in any format except perhaps a very deep 2QB league.
