NFL News and Notes

Philadelphia  Eagles  quarterback  Michael  Vick is  listed  as  probable  for 
Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Vick missed the past two games with 
a  hamstring injury  he suffered in Week  5 against the Giants, but was a full 
participant  in practice  this week. Reports earlier in the week had indicated 
that  Vick  would be  the  starter  for  Sunday,  especially with  Nick  Foles 
sidelined  because  of a concussion. Foles  took over for Vick three weeks ago 
and  had started  the  past two  games before  leaving  last Sunday's  contest 
against Dallas. He sat out practice all week and will not play Sunday. 

                                      === 

Buffalo  Bills  running back C.J.  Spiller is  listed as doubtful for Sunday's 
game  against  New Orleans as he  continues to battle an ankle injury. Spiller 
hasn't  missed a  game yet but has been slowed recently by the ankle issue. He 
has  started  four of the team's  seven games this  season and has run for 362 
yards with a touchdown on 90 carries while adding 14 catches for 36 yards. The 
Bills  also listed  linebacker Manny Lawson as doubtful because of a hamstring 
injury. 

                                      === 

Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson is listed as probable for Sunday's 
game  at  Arizona, while  wide  receiver  Roddy  White  will miss  his  second 
consecutive  game due to injuries to both his ankle and hamstring. Jackson has 
missed  the past four games due to a lingering hamstring injury he suffered in 
Week  2 against the  St. Louis Rams, but was a limited participant in practice 
all  week. The  30-year-old veteran has run  for 77 yards on 14 carries in his 
limited action and will try to revitalize an Atlanta ground attack which ranks 
30th in the NFL with an average of 68.3 yards per contest. 

                                      === 

Christian  Ponder will  be  back under  center on  Sunday  when the  Minnesota 
Vikings  take  on the Green  Bay Packers,  head coach Leslie Frazier confirmed 
Friday.  Ponder  had missed Minnesota's last  three games with a rib injury he 
sustained in a Sept. 22 loss to the Cleveland Browns. With Ponder on the mend, 
Matt  Cassel started  the  team's  two games  before  the  Vikings brought  in 
quarterback  Josh  Freeman to  start  against  the  New York  Giants.  Freeman 
completed  20-of-53 passes for 190 yards with an interception, but sustained a 
concussion  in  the Week 7 loss  to the Giants  and will be inactive on Sunday 
against  the Packers.  With Freeman ruled out for Sunday, Frazier is forced to 
go  back  to Ponder,  who led  the team to  three straight  losses to open the 
season  while  throwing five  interceptions  compared  to just  two  touchdown 
passes.
