‘‘I worry about right now. What we can control. What I can control, and that’s getting this football team better,’’ Reid said. ‘‘Anything that you add into that mix is a distraction and you can’t afford that in the National Football League.’’
Vick has been inconsistent — at best — the last two seasons. After helping to rally the Eagles from a 4-8 start last season with four consecutive victories to close the year, he has thrown for 11 touchdowns with nine interceptions this season.
‘‘He has to get better is what he’s got to do right now,’’ Reid said. ‘‘That’s it. Concentrate on that right now, and that’s the most important thing.’’
Vick’s quarterback rating at the time of the injury was just 79.2.
‘‘Right now, he currently has symptoms. He’s had symptoms all week since the game. He’s had a headache, which has gotten better during the week. He’s foggy. He’s not very alert right now in terms of he just doesn’t have that energy,’’ Burkholder said. ‘‘He’s tired all the time, he’s slept a lot, and he’s not getting rid of that fatigue. I would consider him heavy eyed.
‘‘When I talk to him, he’s just not the Michael Vick that I know when he’s healthy.’’
