Vick cleared to throw on the side

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been cleared to throw on the side during practice Tuesday.

Vick (ribs) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) will be held out of practice according to Andy Reid. Also sidelined is offensive lineman King Dunlap, still not all the way back from a concussion.

Vince Young is slated to take the first-team snaps at quarterback Tuesday and is likely to start his third straight game. Reid says Vick has improved but still is in pain when he "torques" his body throwing the ball. 

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) and running back LeSean McCoy (sprained toe) likely will be limited at practice as the Eagles gear up for the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night at CenturyLink Field.
