Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Vick, 29, was overweight when he joined the team last month. Reid admitted that Vick needed every day of his two-game suspension. Reid says Vick was tired after a brief appearance in a preseason game, but there was something familiar when Vick carried the ball.
“You could see that he is a very talented football player,” Reid says.
Reid wouldn’t say Wednesday whether Vick will play Sunday against the Chiefs. But Eagles quarterback Donovan Mcnabb is injured, and because of that, the team is short on weapons. Not that Philadelphia minds that Kansas City is burning preparation time with Vick in mind.
