Vick wanted back in after concussion

Eagles QB Michael Vick wanted to return to Sunday night’s game against the Falcons after suffering a concussion, but the team refused to allow him to, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Vick was adamant about returning to the field, but once the concussion diagnosis was made, as per NFL protocols, there was no chance the Eagles would let him back on the field.

Vick’s status for next week, given the league’s mandates on concussions, seems quite doubtful.

Vick was alert and attentive Sunday night after the third-quarter hit, according to those who spoke to him. But there is no way to predict exactly how anyone responds to concussions and how quickly Vick would meet all baseline tests to be cleared again to practice and potentially play.
