Michael Vick has returned to practicing with the Philadelphia Eagles first-team offense and says he “feels great.”

The highlight-reel quarterback has given fans in Philadelphia nightmares with his inability to slide or stay out of harm's way.

Vick recently told the Philadelphia Inquirer that fans can relax and that “he’s not injury prone.”

“I don’t think I’m injury-prone at all,” Vick said. “I just had a couple of fluke injuries that happened. But it’s not something I’m worried about.

“Even though I’ve had these injuries and they’ve been minor, I still go out and play the game and play it effectively to the best of my ability without worrying about getting hit. At the end of the day, you just got to go out there and play football, and that’s the only way you play, and not get hurt.

“I’m not really concerned at all. I felt like I had a great training camp. I felt I was in a rhythm. . . . I had the thumb. I had the rib. Being a 10-, 11-year vet, you’ve got to be able to be your best.”

Vick has been knocked out of two straight pre-season games with injuries that, for the most part, could be avoidable if he would just show some restraint in his decision-making.

The Eagles are primed for a long playoff run, but they can only be there in the end if No. 7 is available.
