Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick could take the field next Sunday against the New York Giants for his first game since sustaining a concussion on Nov. 11.
Vick has been cleared by doctors and rookie quarterback Nick Foles, who started the past six games, broke his right hand in the second quarter of last Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, opening the way for the veteran signal-caller's return.
Head coach Andy Reid said there was a high likelihood that Vick would start against New York.
Vick, who is in his fourth season with the Eagles (4-11), had completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 2,165 yards, with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions, when he went down.
The Eagles were 3-6 with Vick under center and Foles has produced a 1-5 record.
Vick signed a six-year contract worth $100 million in 2011, but the Eagles will not owe the veteran QB any money if they release him by Feb. 6. EFE
