PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Michael Vick's teammates say the quarterback looks ready to play when the Philadelphia Eagles host Jacksonville on Thursday.

"As a defensive guy watching, I think he's ready," safety Quintin Mikell said Monday.

Coach Andy Reid will probably make a decision Tuesday on whether Vick will make his Eagles debut in an exhibition home game against the Jaguars.

Vick is eligible to play the next two preseason games, but not in the regular season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he would consider Vick for full reinstatement by no later than Week 6 (Oct. 18-19).

"He's ready for another chance," offensive lineman Shawn Andrews said.
