|Reid Says it Would Be "Stretch: for Vick to Play"
|PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Eagles coach Andy Reid says Michael Vick is unlikely to play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys after the quarterback missed a second straight day of practice.
Reid said Thursday it would be ``a stretch'' for Vick to play. The game has no significance to Philadelphia's playoff status.
Vick bruised his right leg on the first play of the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Vikings Tuesday night, a loss that eliminated the Eagles from contention for a first-round playoff bye and locked them into the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs as the East division champions.
The Eagles (10-5) will open postseason against either the Packers, Giants or Buccaneers.
Kevin Kolb, who has started four games, would start if Vick can't go.
