Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick ‘was very surprised’ at Tuesday’s practice

Michael Vick missed winning the 2010 MVP race by a pube.

Despite battling a hamstring injury, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick practiced Tuesday and hopes to play this weekend against the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.

Vick suffered the wound in the second quarter of Sunday’s 36-21 win over the Giants in the swamps of Jersey.

“I was very surprised I was able to go out there and do what I was able to do,” said Vick, 33, who got concussed in 2012 performing behind a depleted line that couldn’t block Lindsay Lohan on smack.

Bad Newz Kennels’ mastermind has thrown five touchdowns, against two picks, for 1,185 yards over five games.

In addition, Vick has scrambled 33 times for 307 yards and two scores.

Gaining bulk and brawn this offseason to survive on the gridiron, the 6-foot, 215 pound Vick has proven to be the ideal man to operate Chip Kelly’s read-option attack.

With designed runs being called often, the greatest rushing quarterback in NFL history has taken less of a pounding and primarily avoided vicious hits.

A four-time Pro Bowl passer, Vick is directing the league’s eighth preeminent offense.

More importantly, the Eagles are 2-3 and tied with Dallas for first place in the middling NFC East.

Expect Nick Foles to lead Philadelphia’s assault this weekend in the “Cigar City.”

Subsequently, a favorite to collect another Comeback Player of the Year trophy in February, Michael Vick will return and shine when the Eagles host the Cowboys on October 20.
