PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –  After enjoying some time off, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says he and his teammates feel ready to go after getting back to business on the practice field.

“Everybody seemed refreshed, happy to be back, excited,” Vick told KYW Newsradio.  “We (were) bouncing around out there today and had a good practice.  So we are excited to be back, ready to go.”

Vick said the bye week came at a great time.

“Good to just get away, relax for a minute, and get away from football for a second.  Now that we’re back, it’s game on.”

And now that Vick and his teammates are back, they are getting ready for Sunday night’s showdown with the Cowboys.  Kickoff is 8:20pm.

Defensive end Trent Cole (calf), defensive end Brandon Graham (knee), and tackle Jason Peters (hamstring) were all back on the practice field today.
