Coach Tom Coughlin Expects Michael Vick To Play Against Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants' defensive gameplan for the Philadelphia Eagles is going to have a major section on stopping Michael Vick.

As far as Tom Coughlin was concerned Tuesday, the elusive Eagles quarterback is going to play, concussion or not.

Speaking on a conference call a day after the Giants (1-1) knocked off the St. Louis Rams, Coughlin reiterated that if there is a way Vick can play, he will find it.

Vick was knocked out of Sunday night's game against Atlanta with a second-half concussion.

Coughlin also said Giants' last-second loss to the Eagles (1-1) in December was a game that he will never forget. Vick rallied the Eagles from a 21-point deficit with 7:18 to play and they won on a punt return by DeSean Jackson on the final play of the game.

On the injury front, Giants receiver Mario Manningham was feeling better on Tuesday after missing the second half with a concussion. Fellow receiver Domenik Hixon was going to have an MRI on his right knee.
