Vick was officially listed as questionable on the team's Friday injury report.
Vick broke his two lower ribs on the second play of the Eagles' 21-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. He played out the remainder of the loss, but he noticeably was off following the hit. Vick completed only 16 of 34 passes against a suspect Cardinals secondary, sailing the ball over the heads of many of his receivers.
Vick sat out practice all week.
Young will make his first start since Week 11 of 2010, then with the Tennessee Titans. He is not likely to have the services of the Eagles' leading receiver, Jeremy Maclin, who missed his third consecutive practice on Friday and was officially deemed questionable with shoulder and hamstring injuries.
âItâs just all about going out there and playing a game and always staying ready,â Young said Friday. âDefinitely that was one of the (reasons) why they did bring me here, to stay ready and come in and lead guys and keep the same tempo Mike Vick has.
âOverall, I feel pretty good but like Iâve been saying itâs not about me. I just want to go out and just lead the guys to victory.â
