After cracking his head, Michael Vick is back. The Philly quarterback returned to the field after four days down with a concussion.

 

While playing against the Atlanta Falcons earlier this week, Vick took a serious blow. Today, Yahoo! Sports reports the athlete was seen passing balls, jogging and partaking in their drills. Basically he's OK.

 

In great shape, Vick’s participation shows he’s clear by the NFL’s neurologist to play. Many on his team are happy to see him back out there, like Jeremy Maclin who tells Yahoo! Sports, “That’s what you want out of your quarterback. You want him to want to be out there, you want him to put everything on his shoulders, and he wants to be the guy to take us where we want to go.”

 

Though this sounds like a lot of pressure, his teammates say they have his back. “We’re going to rally behind him, and we definitely want him out there,” Maclin says.
