PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Vick practiced again Friday and is expected to be the backup quarterback when the Philadelphia Eagles visit Dallas on Sunday.

Vick didn't play in last Sunday's victory over Denver because of a quadriceps contusion. He normally backs up Donovan McNabb and takes a few snaps each game in Philadelphia's variation of the wildcat offense.

"He's feeling good," coach Andy Reid said Friday. "We've got a couple things in for him, so we look forward to getting him back in there and playing."

Vick was injured on a running play against San Francisco on Dec. 20. He missed practice last week before returning Thursday.

Vick has run for 95 yards and two touchdowns and he's thrown for 86 yards and one score.
