Jags in line to face Vick first, on Aug. 27


Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

The Indianapolis Colts host Philadelphia next week, but it's the Jacksonville Jaguars who will be at Lincoln Financial Field on the night Michael Vick is eligible to see the first action of the second act of his NFL career.

Jacksonville plays at Philadelphia on Aug. 27 in the third preseason game for both teams.

Under the terms of Roger Goodell's conditional reinstatement, Vick can play in his team's final two preseason games.

The telecast of the matchup is slated to be re-aired in HD on the NFL Network the same night at 11 p.m. ET.

While the Jaguars never showed interest in Vick, some fans clamored for him.

As the starter, David Garrard has had a good year and a bad year. He needs to prove himself a long-term solution this season or the team could be in the market for a quarterback next year.

And the current backup is Todd Bouman.
