Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still suffering from concussion symptoms almost a week after he initially sustained the injury in Dallas, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Vick said he still has headaches, fatigue, heavy eyes and fogginess.  He will spend the week in a quiet, dark area and won't be able to exercise or watch any video. "He's not very alert right now in terms of he just doesn't have that energy," head trainer Rick Burkholder said. "He's tired all the time, he's slept a lot, and he's not getting rid of that fatigue. When I talk to him, he's just not the Michael Vick I know when he's healthy." Vick will have to pass an ImPACT test to examine cognitive function and an exercise test, and then he will be examined by an independent neurologist and team physician Gary Dorshimer before he can take the field again.   "Right now, we're early on in this process," Burkholder said. "We are still in what I would consider Phase 1. I'll see Michael again [Saturday] and do some treatment stuff with him to help him out with his headache. We'll go from there. It's not even close for him to play this week." This is Vick's second career concussion, but the first time he will miss a game becuse of it.   "I know that one of his goals was, obviously, not to get hurt and make it through the season," coach Andy Reid said. "Mike is a very considerate guy. He feels like he lets people down and his teammates down, and that's not the case. He's hurt. One of the toughest guys I've been around, though." Nick Foles will start in place of Vick.
