Vick story changes again

Now Andy Reid says there only was a "1 percent chance" Michael Vick could have played Sunday, and that the veteran quarterback stayed inside during the game to get treatment on his still injured ribs.

But just in case Vick was that 1 in 100, he completed the far out drill in his uniform and shoulder pads - and with his helmet nearby.

That was the latest spin on Vick, who arrived at 12:15 p.m. knowing he was the third quarterback, dressed for the game, but never came out of the tunnel.

No way Vick stayed indoors because he was late, Reid allowed at his Monday news conference.

Despite the revolutionary therapy in a game-type setting Vick still isn't healthy enough to assume the starting job that remains his, according to Reid.

“There's a pretty good chance Kevin (Kolb) is the guy this week,” Reid said. "If (Vick) feels like he does today it would be a reach.”

Big Red also said the Eagles won’t shop Kolb or Vick before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. Tuesday because "I’m pretty happy with them."

Then again, it doesn't cost anything to listen.
