Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still experiencing symptoms from last week’s concussion, including fogginess, headaches, fatigue and heavy eyes.
He’s obviously out for Sunday’s game and Nick Foles will start in his place. Vick has been advised to spend the weekend in the dark. No video, no noise and no exercising.
While he’s out of commission, Vick can’t help but feel like he let the team down, according to head coach Andy Reid.
"I know that one of his goals was, obviously, not to get hurt and make it through the season," he told Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Mike is a very considerate guy. He feels like he lets people down and his teammates down, and that's not the case. He's hurt. One of the toughest guys I've been around, though."
Head trainer Rick Burkholder has an eye on him throughout his injury. "He's not very alert right now in terms of he just doesn't have that energy," he said. "He's tired all the time, he's slept a lot, and he's not getting rid of that fatigue. When I talk to him, he's just not the Michael Vick I know when he's healthy."
The team has hopes that Vick will start to feel better by Monday, but there’s always a chance that his concussion symptoms will linger.
The Eagles take on the Washington Redskins, Sunday at 1pm.
