Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that quarterback Michael Vick, wide receiver DeSean Jackson and cornerback Asante Samuel are "good to go" and won't be limited at practice this week as the team prepares for Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.

Vick didn't play during the Week 17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys because of a thigh bruise that he sustained Dec. 28 against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Pro Bowl quarterback told NFL Network insider Albert Breer that he's "damn near" 100 percent now and he will be 100 percent by Sunday's game.

Vick started 12 games this season, passing for 3,018 yards and 21 touchdowns. He threw just six interceptions, and his 62.6 completion rate was the highest of his career.

Jackson has battled a foot injury that kept him out against the Cowboys, and Samuel has had a knee injury. Both also were Pro Bowl selections.

Meanwhile, Reid said linebacker Stewart Bradley and guard Max Jean-Gilles wouldn't practice Wednesday.

Bradley missed the previous three games after dislocating an elbow in Week 14. Bradley said after Sunday's game that he would be ready to go, but Reid was more measured Monday, saying it would "be a stretch" for the linebacker to play.

"We'll see how the week goes on," Reid added.

Jean-Gilles injured an ankle Sunday, but he is expected to play against the Packers.

Reid also confirmed that cornerback Dimitri Patterson will start Sunday.
