Michael Vick To Play: A Blow for the Detroit Lions Against Philadelphia Eagles

September 16, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Kevin Kolb is officially riding the bench and Michael Vick will get his first start since 2006 when the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Detroit to play the Lions this Sunday.
This Week 2 matchup could not have gotten any worse for the Lions.
This injury couldn't have come at a better time for the Eagles.
Arguably a bigger loss for the Eagles was the season ending injury to Jammal Jackson, who tore his triceps muscle in Week 1. That injury surely made the Lions defensive front—Ndamukong Suh, Corey Williams, Kyle Vanden Bosch, and the ghost of Cliff Avril—salivate.
Suh, especially, has to relish the shot at Mike McGlynn in his first start of NFL action. The Eagles center has only played in three career games poses a much lighter matchup than Olin Kreutz of the Chicago Bears did in Soldier Field.
Suh will get that shot and likely manhandle McGlynn, but Kolb won't be there.
Undoubtedly, no one will be.
