Vick Misses Practice with Broken Ribs

Michael Vick is not practicing Wednesday because of broken ribs, and it’s uncertain whether the Pro Bowl quarterback will play when the Eagles visit the Giants on Sunday night.

Eagles coach Andy Reid says Vick is “still sore” and “these next few days will tell” if he plays Sunday. Vick broke his two lower ribs on the second play of the Eagles’ 21-17 loss to Arizona on Sunday. He didn’t tell anyone he was hurt and played through the pain.

Reid says Vince Young and Mike Kafka will share reps at practice. He wouldn’t identify a starter.

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and offensive lineman King Dunlap (concussion) also aren’t practicing Wednesday.
