Michael Vick was officially listed as questionable on Friday, a day after the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback said he would miss Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys due to his hamstring injury.
Coach Chip Kelly said before Thursday's practice that he had not ruled Vick out, and that remained the team's official stance Friday, although second-year quarterback Nick Foles will start against the Cowboys.
"No, I'm not playing this week," Vick said Thursday. "Not this week."
Vick pulled a hamstring Oct. 6 game against the New York Giants. He was activated for last Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but did not play.
Foles, who was named NFC offensive player of the week, will start for the second straight week.
"I just can't rush it," Vick said. "I came out and tried to push it a little bit, tried to run a little faster. I was able to do that, but at the same time, I don't want to push it too much. I want to let things happen naturally."
It is unclear who will start once Vick is healthy. Kelly recently said that Vick will remain the starter, but this week said he is evaluating "everything."
When asked if a player can lose his job to an injury, Kelly said, "I think it all depends on the individual situation.
Foles completed 44 of 66 passes for 470 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in two games against Dallas last year.
Vick's active or inactive status will be a game-day decision.
--LT Jason Peters, who injured his shoulder in last week's game against the Bucs, was not limited in practice Friday and is probable for Sunday's game.
--RB Chris Polk (shoulder) returned to full practice Friday but is listed as questionable. Polk is the team's No. 3 running back.
--S Patrick Chung (shoulder) was listed as doubtful despite practicing Friday. The injury involves a nerve. Chung missed two games, returned last week, but had to leave after just 12 snaps. Rookie Earl Wolff replaced him.
--P Donnie Jones (foot) practiced Friday and is probable. Jones, who is left-footed, also was on the injury list last week, but played against the Bucs.
--TE James Casey, who missed last week's game with a groin injury, was a full practice participant Friday and is expected to play this week.
