Vick underwent impact testing on Friday, but was below the baseline, Burkholder said. He will be tested again on Monday. Burkholder said that he would normally give a concussed player a three or four-phased exercise challenge, but that Vick wasn't ready.
"He has too many symptoms for us to even exercise him," Burkholder said.
Even after he passes the testing and exercise challenge, Vick must see an independent neurologist and then the team doctor before he's cleared to return to practice.
"We're early on in the process," Burkholder said. "We're still in what I would consider Phase I. ... Right now it's not in Michael's best interest, in the league's best interest, in our best interest, it's not even close to him playing this week."
Translation... Vick is benched.. health related issues will help save face and keep things from getting a contraversy. We will see how Foles does, before we decide if Vick is getting better or not.
editorial... It will be nice to see Foles. At least get a glimpse of what we might have in the future, and get him some experience. I'm concerned about the lack of protection making him get into some very bad habits and make poor decisions. But it is what it is - let the kid fly. Either way, it's time for Reid to go.
