Micheal Vick: Vick Out With Concussion

November 17, 2012 by  

Micheal Vick: Vick Out With Concussion, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still suffering symptoms almost a week after sustaining a concussion, including headaches, fatigue, heavy eyes, and fogginess. He has officially been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, and there is no timetable for his return. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles will start in Vick’s place.

Vick will spend the weekend in a dark, quiet area and must avoid exercising and watching video.

“He’s not very alert right now in terms of he just doesn’t have that energy,” head trainer Rick Burkholder said. “He’s tired all the time, he’s slept a lot, and he’s not getting rid of that fatigue. When I talk to him, he’s just not the Michael Vick I know when he’s healthy.”

Before Vick can even consider returning to the field, there are major steps he needs to take. He underwent an ImPACT test Friday to examine cognitive function. Burkholder said Vick was still “below baseline.” Vick will take the same test Monday. Once he clears that test, Vick will undergo an exercise test on a stationary bicycle.
