According to a report earlier today in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick suited up for practice today and was throwing passes. Vick was cleared to practice Thursday after suffering a concussion Sunday night in Atlanta. Although Vick was listed as questionable, he appears likely to start against the Giants Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

For the Giants, wide receiver Mario Manningham (concussion) was listed as doubtful. Manningham did not practice Friday because he was undergoing tests with an independent neurologist, according to coach Tom Coughlin. "It's the protocol," said Coughlin, who added that Manningham's concussion was the result of two or three hits, not one particular catch.

Defensive end Justin Tuck missed practice because of a death in the family, but Coughlin said he definitely will play Sunday.

As expected, defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) is out after not practicing, and rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara (foot) also is out after not practicing. Listed as probable for the Giants after a full practice were center David Baas (lower leg), tight end Travis Beckum (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy (knee).
