All indication and common sense suggest that, since the Philadelphia Eagles have exactly nothing to gain from their regular season finale against your Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, starting quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered a bruised quadriceps in Tuesday’s loss to the Vikings, will not play.
This has not changed the Dallas Cowboys’ game-planning, however.
The Cowboys are preparing to face the dynamic Vick with the knowledge that Kevin Kolb will more likely get the nod in the meaningless game in Philly.
“We’re getting ready to play Michael Vick,” outside linebacker Anthony Spencer said, per ESPN Dallas. “If Kolb plays then we can adjust from there. But [Vick] is more elusive than Kolb is.”
Kolb, who started the season as the Eagles’ starter and played a good deal through the first few weeks, indeed presents a different challenge for Dallas, but one they feel they can handle with a good grasp on the Philly offense.
“The rule is you prepare for the system,” interim head coach Jason Garrett said, “but certainly these two quarterbacks are different in their implementations of the system. They’re both good players.”
