Michael Vick Yet to Pass Concussion Test
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has still yet to pass his imPACT concussion test which means that he has still not been cleared to practice with the team or play in any of their games.
On Wednesday Vick failed the test for the third time. He is likely to miss his third consecutive game since suffering the concussion nearly four weeks ago in the Eagles 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on November 11. Since Vick is likely to miss this week’s rematch against the Cowboys on Sunday, rookie quarterback Nick Foles has a good chance to be behind center for the Eagles for the third straight week.
In the two plus games that Foles has participated in this season while filling in for Vick, the rookie signal caller has 542 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions while completing 59.6% of his pass attempts.
On Tuesday night Vick was fitted for a protective skull cap, which the Pro Bowl quarterback plans on wearing underneath his helmet once he finally does pass the imPACT test and is cleared to step back on the field. Neurologist Dr. Dimi Barot suggested that Vick get the protective cap which Unequal Technologies Corporation will construct. The cap will be made with their Concussion Reduction Technology. Unequal Technologies Corporation is the same company that designed protective Kevlar devices that allowed Vick to compete with rib injuries in the past.
The has been no word from the Eagles organization as to when Vick will be administered another imPACT test as of yet.
