Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may start on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Vick participated in practice three straight days this week, and on Friday he will undergo a tough physical test to determine if he can play for the first time since hurting his leg on Oct. 6.

“Gotta get out here and run,” Vick said Thursday. “Tomorrow’s not a walk-through day for me.”

The evaluation will be a simple test.

“Run 100 yards as fast as I can,” he said.

QB Nick Foles has played for the Eagles since Vick’s injury, but he suffered a concussion last Sunday in a game against the Cowboys.

Coach Chip Kelly said he and Vick have yet to talk about whether he will start or not. The coach said the determination will be made by Vick’s progress.

“We’ll see where Mike is,” Kelly said. “Again it’s how do you respond?”
