Coach Andy Reid said Vick will be the starter when the Eagles open the season at Cleveland on Sept. 9.
Vick said he is "doing good, feeling better" and will be ready.
It doesn't matter.
The one thing we can be reasonably sure of is that Vick wil get hurt again and miss some games.
And even if he manages to stay healthy for all 16 games for only the second time in his 10-year NFL career, the current injury he is working through could already have contributed to the derailment of the Eagles' Super Bowl chances.
If we really want to be realistic about this, we know Vick will not be sharp at the start of the season.
If events continue on their current trajectory, Vick will enter the opener against the Browns having thrown only seven passes in preseason games and been on the field for only 12 plays.
Only the most wide-eyed optimist would credibly argue that is enough preseason action for Vick to be prepared to start the season.
