Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has moved into the second phase of concussion recovery, reports CSN Philly. The team's trainer, Rick Burkholder, confirmed the news through an Eagles spokesman.
Vick suffered a concussion in a game against the Cowboys on Nov. 11 and hasn't practiced or played since.
During the first phase of concussion recovery, a player cannot exercise at all. But Vick passed the NFL's mandated ImPACT test (which measures brain activity before and after a concussion) and was on a bike machine in the weight room on Wednesday morning.
An appearance in Monday night's game against the Panthers for Vick is unlikely, however: He won't be able to play in a game or even practice until being cleared by a league-approved neurologist and Gary Dorshimer, the team's internist and a concussion specialist. Rookie Nick Foles started in Vick's place on Sunday when the Eagles lost 31-6 to the Redskins. Eagles coach Andy Reid has remained emphatic that Vick will return as the team's starting quarterback when he's healthy.
