PHILADELPHIA — Eagles coach Andy Reid says there’s no question Michael Vick will be ready to play the season opener despite injuring his ribs again.

Vick won’t practice Wednesday after bruising his ribs and the soft tissue surrounding it during Philadelphia’s win at New England on Monday. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback hasn’t been ruled out of Friday night’s preseason game at Cleveland, though it’s unlikely he will play.

The Eagles play the Browns again in Week 1 on Sept. 9.

Vick has missed three games because of rib injuries in each of the past two seasons. Nick Foles will start on Friday if Vickcan’t play.

The starters are expected to play about one quarter.
