Michael Vick improving, could return to starting role if cleared: Fantasy implications

Rich Schultz

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (concussion) is improving but has not yet been cleared to return to the field. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has not yet been cleared to return but is improving, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Vick suffered a concussion in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys and did not play on Sunday.

Nick Foles started in place of Vick on Sunday, although Reid said that Vick would return as the team's starter if he's cleared to play this week against the Carolina Panthers. Reid did not rule out Vick for Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Foles didn't look great in Week 11, although the Eagles would likely want to give him another week to show what he can do. Vick's concussion was described as significant and his status will still depend on whether he can pass tests and return to practice.

Fantasy owners should monitor injury reports as the week goes along but should not expect a lot from Foles or Vick in Week 12.
