Michael Vick may have ruled himself out for the Eagles’ game against the Cowboys Sunday, but the Eagles haven’t ruled him out.
The Eagles on Friday listed Vick as questionable for Sunday with a hamstring injury, one day after he told reporters during a joint press conference with Nick Foles: “I’m not playing this week.”
Vick, who hasn’t played since late in the first half of the Giants game, was listed as a full participant in practice, although Friday’s practice is a no-pads, half-speed walkthrough.
Vick said earlier this week he feared this could be a long-term injury and said the hamstring pull is worse than he thought and healing slower than he expected.
Foles is expected to make his second straight start Sunday when the Eagles and Cowboys meet at the Linc in a battle for first place in the NFC East.
Meanwhile, Patrick Chung, who returned to action Sunday in Tampa only to leave the game after 12 snaps after aggravating his shoulder injury, was listed as doubtful for the Cowboys, although he too was listed as a full participant.
If Chung is unable to play, rookie Earl Wolff would start alongside Nate Allen at safety Sunday.
The Eagles also listed running back Chris Polk as questionable. Polk suffered a shoulder injury in the Tampa game. He didn’t practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday and is listed as a full participant Friday.
Left tackle Jason Peters, who also sat out practice Wednesday but returned as a full participant on Thursday, was listed as probable with shoulder and finger injuries.
Tight end James Casey (groin) and punter Donnie Jones (left foot) were also listed as full participants Friday, and both are officially probable for Sunday.
