Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was encouraged by how he felt after going through some limited practice drills on Tuesday.

Vick left Sunday’s 36-21 win over the New York Giants in the second quarter with a left hamstring injury. Head Coach Chip Kelly listed Vick on Monday as “day to day.”

An injury update will be released Wednesday, according to the Eagles Web site.

The 33-year-old quarterback was on the practice field Tuesday in a helmet but no pads.

“I was surprised I was able to throw and throw with such velocity,” Vick said (via the team’s Web site.) “I feel a lot better than I did on Sunday. Sunday was kind of agonizing. It was tough. It was tough to deal with but I’m glad with where I’m at today.”

Vick’s comments came a day after ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the quarterback is expected to miss Sunday’s start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If Vick can’t go, it is likely that backup Nick Foles, who replaced Vick in the Giants game, will start.

Vick, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2000, has had various ailments over his career. He missed six games last season because of a concussion, and finished the season with 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his 10 starts.
