PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Michael Vick is traveling with the Philadelphia Eagles for their season opener at Carolina to get a taste of what's the team's road routine is all about.
Eagles coach Andy Reid usually does not take players on the road if they are not going to play. Reid said Friday it was important for Vick to become familiar with how the Eagles handle their business on trips.
Vick will not be reinstated until the third game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 27. He can't practice with the team until he is placed on the roster.
Vick will not be allowed on the sideline or in the locker room against the Panthers.
