Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has not yet been ruled out for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Andy Reid on Wednesday morning.

Vick sustained what Reid described as a "significant" concussion during the team's Week 10 loss to Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. Rookie backup Nick Foles replaced Vick in the second quarter after he was forced to leave the game.

Reid stated that Vick still requires rest but his headaches have already started to subside. As of this time, Vick has yet to undergo any kind of testing and is still required to go through the league-mandated concussion protocol. Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder will give an update on Vick's status later in the week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Foles was going to start in Vick's place this Sunday, which echoed a report from Yahoo! Sports that stated that the Eagles were contemplating shutting Vick down for the remainder of the season.
