PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Vick is not practicing Wednesday because of broken ribs, and it's uncertain whether the Pro Bowl quarterback will play when the Philadelphia Eagles visit the New York Giants on Sunday night.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Vick is "still sore" and "these next few days will tell" if he plays Sunday. Vick broke his two lower ribs on the second play of the Eagles' 21-17 loss to Arizona on Sunday. He didn't tell anyone he was hurt and played through the pain.
Reid says Vince Young and Mike Kafka will share reps at practice. He wouldn't identify a starter.
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and offensive lineman King Dunlap (concussion) also aren't practicing Wednesday.
In other team news, The New York Times reported that according to a person with knowledge of the investigation, Eagles safety Jarrad Page was among professional athletes who were present at a Manhattan club when a man was shot and killed Tuesday morning.
The Eagles announced Wednesday they had released Page and promoted wide receiver Chad Hall from the practice squad. But Reid told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that the incident had "nothing to do with his release."
"He's a good kid," Reid said of Page.
