Young to Start Thursday Preseason Finale; Kafka to Play Second Half

Jeff McLane from reports in Thursday’s preseason finale at the New York Jets, in which Michael Vick will rest, QB Vince Young is slated to start and play in the first half before Mike Kafka takes over in the second half.

Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg insist the competition is still open. But both have made it a point to single out Young’s experience and winning percentage (62.5) since the Eagles signed him in late July.

Young, despite a late start because he was signed as a free agent in a compressed offseason, has taken nearly every repetition with the second team since his first practice four weeks ago. Some of that has been out of necessity because he’s so new to the Eagles offense. But mainly it’s because the Eagles need him to be ready.
