Eagles Injury Update: Vick doubtful vs. Packers
Share This Post

Michael Vick and reserve linebacker Jake Knott are each doubtful to play against Green Bay on Sunday at Lambeau Field, according to the team’s injury report.

Vick and Knott are still nursing hamstring injuries that have forced each one to miss several games. Nick Foles, coming off his record seven-touchdown game against Oakland, will make his second straight start.

Defensive lineman Cedric Thornton, the team’s top run defender, is good to go despite missing practice Tuesday and Wednesday to ease up his sore knee. Thornton is listed as probable, which means he has a 75-percent chance to play.

Right cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who was limited throughout the week with a pectoral injury, is questionable, which technically means he’s 50-50, but Fletcher has said all week that he expects to start.

Left tackle Jason Peters, who is dealing with finger, shoulder and pectoral injuries, is also probable, along with cornerback Rashad Carmichael (groin), safety Patrick Chung (shoulder), receiver/return specialist Damaris Johnson (ankle), running back Chris Polk (shoulder, knee) and backup guard/center Julian Vandervelde.

The entire team participated in Friday’s walkthrough.
