Vick went on to tell PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus that he expects to be back next week or maybe the week after.
In the meantime, Vick and Foles are a picture of solidarity.
"I love Mike," Foles responded when asked about the nascent quarterback competition. "We're gonna always root for one another."
Vick returned the favor, lightly scolding reporters for underestimating Foles' abilities.
"What people don't know is that Nick is very athletic," Vick explained. "You'll start to see it as time goes on, but I've always admired the things he can do. I mean, the things you don't see when we out in practice, the way he handles the football, the way he moves around, it translates over when he's on the field."
The mutual admiration suggests there will be very little controversy in Philadelphia regardless of coach Chip Kelly's quarterback choice in the coming weeks.
