In so many words Chip Kelly indicated Monday he's seen enough of Michael Vick to realize this is a good time to give the veteran all of the time he needs to rehab the problematic hamstring.
"I’m going to
wait for the determination but Mike didn’t seem like he was going to be ready
this week,” Kelly said Monday. “He felt like when I talked to him the first time, that
he thought he was going to be back after the Giants game. This is the first time
when I talked to him that he thought he may be out. We’ll see when we sit down
and visit with him after they get the final results and I talk to Chris
(Peduzzi) and Dr. DeLuca."

Regardless the Eagles need to take a hard look at this group of college quarterbacks who could compose the 2014 draft,
