Michael Vick will make his Eagles debut Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars if all goes well over the next three days of practice, coach Andy Reid said Saturday.
"I think there is a chance of that," Reid said. "Right now that's the plan. But we'll see how it goes."
Vick signed with Philadelphia on Aug. 13 but was not allowed to play in the team's first two preseason games under the provisions of his suspension from the league.
Vick has worked the majority of his time at quarterback. If he does play Thursday, he would share time with starter Donovan Mcnabb and backup Kevin Kolb, who is coming back from a knee injury.
"I want to see how he does this week," Reid said. "He worked throughout the week here as we went to the game (in Indianapolis). He did a couple of workouts here and was here yesterday on the players' day off and worked hard. He's getting through that soreness and we'll just see how it goes for this week as he goes through practice."
"It looks like -- I'm talking the football side -- it looks like he's in pretty good shape. You could tell he's done some running and some lifting. It looked like he started out a little rusty throwing the ball and as the week went on that smoothed out for him a little bit."
