Eagles using Vick sparingly

Philly.com - [Full Article]

In the month since Michael Vick's controversial return to the NFL, his involvement in the Eagles' offense has decreased with each game.

The quarterback-multipurpose player has gone from being on the field for 11 plays with the first team in his first game to five in the second game to just two in the Eagles' 13-9 loss at Oakland on Sunday.

While there is reason to believe that Vick will be used more often when the Eagles face Washington on Monday night - how could he not? - there is some confusion as to why the team would risk so much in acquiring the notorious player if it intended to use him only sparingly.

Vick, however, has had no problems with his limited role.

"The Michael Vick from two years ago was used to being a starter in this league and used to being in the limelight, being the guy who takes all the snaps," Vick said yesterday. "It's different, but I can adjust. I can adapt to any situation, and this was one of them."
