You don't have to read too closely between the lines to sense Michael Vick might be facing a lengthy absence from game action.
"I want to get back out there, but I can't," Vick said, via CSN Philly. "I try to burst and run, I can't do it. Just hoping it's not a long time."
"It's worse than what I thought it was going to be," he added. "It's just slow. It's taking longer than I thought it would."
It's a familiar refrain for Vick, who's played a full 16-game season just once since entering the league in 2001. He practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday while Nick Foles took first-team reps.
Vick said the hamstring strain is high up on his leg. Generally, the higher the strain is, the longer it takes to heal. Vick is on the shelf, and he might have to get comfortable there.
