phillymagMichael Vick stood to one side in a white long-sleeve Eagles shirt and grey sweatpants. Nick Foles set up to his right in a red No. 9 practice jersey and black mesh shorts. Together they stood for 11 minutes, 54 seconds, answering questions in a joint press conference outside the NovaCare Complex Thursday afternoon. “You never had a tag-team press conference,” Vick said. “”This is the first time it’s ever been done in history. We made history today.” The two QBs started walking off the practice field, knowing each was scheduled to address reporters separately. They looked over to Eagles director of public relations Derek Boyko to see who was up first, and he waived them both over to the tent. The first question centered on Vick’s hamstring injury, and the veteran QB revealed that he still needs time to heal. I’m not playing this week,” Vick said. After the press conference, when asked what’s realistic in terms of his return, Vick told Tim McManus: “Next week, maybe the week after.” “Everything is coming along as planned,” Vick said. “So I just can’t rush it.”
