Eagles QB Michael Vick Reportedly Still 'Foggy, Tired All The Time'
Eagles head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters Friday that quarterback Michael Vick is still in the first phase of the concussion recovery process. The Eagles confirmed Vick will not play Sunday at Washington, but Burkholder said it is impossible to project what his status might be beyond that.
"He's had symptoms all week, since the (Dallas) game," Burkholder said. "He's had a headache, which has gotten better during the week. He's foggy -- he's not very alert right now in terms of, he just doesn't have that energy. He's tired all the time. He's sleeping a lot, he's not getting rid of the fatigue. I would consider him heavy-eyed.
"When you talk to him, he's just not the Michael Vick that you know when he's healthy."
Burkholder said the next step toward recovery would be exercise, but Vick isn't ready for that. He is spending much of his time in a quiet, dark place, Burkholder said. He said neck massage has helped alleviate Vick's headaches.
