Michael Vick is ahead of Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy when it comes to returning from a concussion.

Vick has made progress in recent days, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, while McCoy is still suffering from his concussion. Both players have been ruled out for Monday’s game at Lincoln Financial Field against the Carolina Panthers.

“LeSean still has symptoms today -- he's got a headache, he's got periodic dizziness with exertion,” Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said. “We're not exercising him, but if he goes up and down steps too fast, tries to pick up his baby, that type of thing, he gets a little fuzzy. It's not nearly as bad as it was in Washington, but he's still very fatigued, he's got some sleep issues. One of the things he complains about is sensitivity to noise. He's foggy and he's slowed down."

Vick, on the other hand, is moving closer to being cleared, and he could begin throwing the football on Sunday. But Vick will have to clear some other hurdles before he will be cleared to actually practice.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said Vick will be the team’s starting quarterback when he is game ready.
