Vick’s Playing Time Decreasing as Time Goes By

The Philly Inquirer reports the playing time of Mike Vick is actually going down at this point:

In the month since Michael Vick’s controversial return to the NFL, his involvement in the Eagles’ offense has decreased with each game. The quarterback-multipurpose player has gone from being on the field for 11 plays with the first team in his first game to five in the second game to just two in the Eagles’ 13-9 loss at Oakland on Sunday. Of the 18 “Spread Eagle” plays Vick has been directly a part of, the Eagles have gained just 34 yards for a 1.9-yard average. “We signed him as a backup quarterback,” Reid said Monday. “We have gotten probably a little bit more out of him than I thought we would have out of our other backup quarterbacks.”
