The Philadelphia Eagles’ hard-fought win against the New York Giants in Week 4 didn’t come without a few injuries. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Nnamdi Asomugha each suffered an injury but they practiced on Wednesday and are ready to go for Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers, according to NBCSports.

Vick had suffered a late game knee contusion in their win against the Giants and his status prior to Wednesday was uncertain for the Steelers game, as Vick said he simply hoped to be able to play in that game. Head Coach Andy Reid reportedly didn’t seem worried about the injury, as Vick practiced with the team on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Steelers. Following their win against the Giants, Reid confirmed that McCoy had tweaked his knee but it appears that he’s fine now that he’s back at practice. Asomugha was poked in the eye but he is also expected to play against the Steelers.

The Eagles might also see the return of King Dunlap, the teams left tackle who suffered a hamstring injury in a Week 2 win against the Baltimore Ravens. Reid said that although Dunlap is now healthy enough to play, he might still keep Demetress Bell in the starting lineup, according to a report on Wednesday from Jeff McClane of The Philadelphia Inquirer:

“I’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” Reid said before practice. “But I’m  glad to have King back. I just want to see how he’s doing.”

King Dunlap is a big, lazy load who really doesn't want to be a starter for the Eagles. He's perfectly content to ride the bench and collect a paycheck, and this is who the Eagles want to use as their starting left tackle? Better to try to develop Bell, who at least used to be a starter.
