Despite him leaving the New York Jets game early and walking with a slight limp after the game, Michael Vick came through Sunday relatively unscathed, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday.
The quarterback was at the NovaCare Complex the morning following the Eagles' 45-19 win over the Jets receiving treatment on his ribs and other various bumps and bruises. But Reid reported that Vick felt better than he did last week after the Dolphins game, and by that assessment Vick should be able to practice on Tuesday in preparation for Saturday's big game at Dallas.
"Michael Vick made it through well," Reid said, "other than just normal soreness."
The Eagles managed to avoid major injury for the second straight week. Cornerback Asante Samuel left Sunday's game early with a hamstring strain, but Reid said it wasn't significant.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie filled in for Samuel at left corner and would earn the start if Samuel couldn't go in four days.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson left Sunday's game with an elbow contusion but returned and "should be OK," Reid said. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and tackle Todd Herremans entered the game with hamstring and ankle injuries but did not suffer setbacks, according to Reid.
Defensive end Darryl Tapp (fractured rib) and defensive tackle Trevor Laws (knee tendinitis) were held out against the Jets, but Reid said both were improving, and noted that there was a "good chance" Tapp was back by Saturday,
Reid sounded as if he was sticking with Dion Lewis as his kick returner even though the rookie running back fumbled on Sunday and has struggled most of the season. "There are certain things he's got to do a little bit better," Reid said. . . . Eagles defensive end Jason Babin had 171/2 sacks in the first 66 games of his career; 301/2 in his last 30. . . . The Eagles have never had two rookie linemen start 10 or more games in the same season until center Jason Kelce (14) and right guard Danny Watkins (10) did it this season.
