Reid: Vick playing Sunday is a 'stretch'
By Matt Mosley
Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid told reporters Wednesday that it would be a "stretch" to envision quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) playing against the 49ers on Sunday per the Daily News' Les Bowen. He said Vick still had some swelling in his chest, but was feeling better than he was Monday.
Reid also indicated that he wouldn't be signing a quarterback or running back this week as insurance behind Kevin Kolb and LeSean McCoy, who has a cracked rib.
"Right now, I'm not making any transactions," said Reid per Bowen.
The Eagles coach said he expects cornerback Asante Samuel and wide receiver Riley Cooper, who both suffered concussions, to play this Sunday and he left the door open for McCoy to return as well. Asked if Kolb would have a chance to earn his starting job back with a strong performance against the 49ers, Reid quickly tried to change the topic.
