PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael Vick is healthy. He appears ready to tackle his fourth season with the Eagles. And all signs are pointing to another standout season for the veteran quarterback.
But what about his backups?
That was one of the questions being bandied about practice on Thursday, as the Eagles returned to their training complex in Philadelphia — after training camp at Lehigh University — and continued preparations for Monday's preseason game vs. New England.
There are plenty of options, of course. Philadelphia has Trent Edwards, Nick Foles and Mike Kafka on the roster. But Kafka has an injured hand and won't play against the Patriots. Coach Andy Reid said Foles will be No. 2 on Monday, while Edwards is No. 3.
