PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered a concussion last weekend, participated in a walk-through practice Wednesday, the NFL team said.

Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said Vick is "right where we expect him to be" in terms of recovering from the head injury. There are protocols the NFL outlined for players who have suffered concussions and Vick is going through that process, Burkholder said.


The trainer said Vick was close to baseline tests but must be evaluated by an independent neurologist before he is cleared to play.

"The only symptoms he has right now are his neck's a little sore, his jaw's a little sore," Burkholder said.

Philadelphia Coach Andy Reid said he was getting all three of the team's quarterbacks ready for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. It is the Eagles' home opener.

Mike Kafka took over after Vick was injured Sunday in a game with Atlanta. Also on the roster is Vince Young, who is listed as the No. 2 quarterback but has been recovering from a hamstring injury.
