Eagles will start Michael Vick at 80 percent before they start Matt Barkley

Michael Vick will announce his status for Sunday’s Giants game when Vick speaks with reporters following practice today, a source close to Vick said. That announcement is expected to be that Vick feels his left hamstring has healed enough for him to play.

There have been several reports saying that Vick is still not 100 percent, but the team is giving him the option to start.  I guess after last week’s performance by Matt Barkley the team would rather have Vick at 80 percent than have Barkley at 100.  I honestly cannot blame them after his three pick performance, but I feel Barkley will be a stud in the NFL. He was the most pro ready, and if given another opportunity, I cannot see the Eagles not giving him the opportunity.

If you have Vick in fantasy, I am not sure I would play him this week.  You might want to wait until he is a 100 percent.
