Vick Gets Ovation
Philadelphia, PA - Michael Vick entered to a standing ovation and completed a 4-yard shovel pass on the Eagles' second play from scrimmage with Donovan McNabb lined up at wide receiver.
Vick got a nice reception from the half-empty crowd at Lincoln Financial Field when he jogged onto the field. McNabb threw an incomplete pass on first down and was split wide on the next play.
Vick, standing in a shotgun formation, tossed a short pass to LeSean McCoy, who was quickly swarmed by Jacksonville's defense.
Vick hadn't appeared in an NFL game since Dec. 31, 2006. He was released from federal custody July 20 after serving 18 months of a 23-month sentence for his role in running a dogfighting ring. He signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Eagles, who hold a $5.2 million option for a second season.
