Vick, injured in a 38-23 loss to Dallas on Nov. 11, took the exam on Wednesday, the Eagles said. Backup Nick Foles, a rookie who has started the last two games for Philadelphia, will likely get the call again on Sunday, when the Eagles (3-8) face the Cowboys (5-6), this time in Dallas.

Vick endured consecutive bruising hits in the second quarter against the Cowboys in Philadelphia before leaving the game. He was knocked on his back by Dallas linebacker Ernie Sims on an incomplete pass and was slow to get up. On the previous play, he was driven from behind headfirst into the ground by Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff.

Philadelphia has lost seven in a row, and is in last place in the NFC East.
