Chip Kelly: ‘I Would Think Vick Won’t Be Ready To Go’ vs Raiders


Michael Vick is unlikely to play this week against the Oakland Raiders, and may not play again this season.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said on his regular Monday morning appearance on WIP’s Morning Show that “Vick is unlikely to play Sunday, and that Matt Barkley probably would get the start.”

“Matt is healthy, so that’s a positive,” Kelly said. “I would think Mike would not be ready to go, and it depends on where Nick is. So we’ll know early in the week which two guys we got to prepare for, one and two. Our first day of practice is [Tuesday]. We’ll have a good understanding today. I know Nick will come in today and meet with [trainer] Chris Peduzzi and our doctors, and we’ll have a good understanding of where Nick is this week and what’s his availability.”

Kelly said after the 15-7 loss to the Giants, that Nick Foles still hasn’t been cleared to play.
