Late Wednesday morning, No. 2 quarterback Nick Foles still had not taken the Impact test in his recovery from a concussion. Once Foles passes the test, which measures his cognitive function, an independent neurologist must clear him before he can rejoin the team at practice.
Kelly said before practice that the biggest test for Vick would be how he bounces back from Tuesday to Wednesday. His full participation can be taken as a good sign, but the team is still waiting to see Vick run full sprints. The team has exercised caution.
"I can't force the health issue," Kelly said.
One injured player to watch is cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who has swelling in his knee. Fletcher did not practice. The Eagles have only four cornerbacks on the roster after releasing two developmental cornerbacks in the last week.
"I'm just making sure I'm all good," Fletcher said. "By Sunday, I'll be ready to go for sure."
The other players who missed practice were Foles and linebacker Jake Knott, who has a hamstring issue.
Safety Patrick Chung was limited with a shoulder injury that has kept him out of three games this season. Kelly said Chung's progress has been encouraging, although he said it's a "daily thing." Chung was a full participant Tuesday, according to Kelly, before being limited a day later.
Jason Peters was limited with shoulder and finger injuries, but he has been able to play. The same is true for punter Donnie Jones, who was limited with a left-foot injury. Defensive lineman Cedric Thornton was a new addition to the injury report with a sore knee and was limited in practice.
Running back Chris Polk (shoulder), who missed Sunday's game, was a full participant.
Up the turnpike
The Giants missed running back Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), linebacker Spencer Paysinger (ankle), and defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (knee) at Wednesday's practice. All are key contributors.
