PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Eagles quarterback Michael Vick practiced for a second consecutive day Friday and pronounced himself ready to play against the Giants (1-1) in the Eagles’ home opener Sunday, seven days after he left a game against the Falcons with a concussion.

“There’s no reason to think that I won’t play on Sunday,” Vick said. “I’ve had two good days of practice. I’m optimistic I’ll be able to go out there and very excited to play.”

Eagles coach Andy Reid said that barring a setback, Vick will start against the team that has lost to Philadelphia six straight times.

“If he’s OK on game day,” Reid said, “then he plays on game day.”

Vick suffered a concussion Sunday night in Atlanta during the third quarter of the Eagles’ 35-31 loss to the Falcons and didn’t return to the game. He was replaced by second-year pro Mike Kafka.
