NFL teams make adjustments at quarterback

Thu., Oct. 24, 2013

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went through a second consecutive practice with no setbacks Wednesday.

But the injured veteran said he still needs to test out his injured hamstring and won’t know more until Friday, as Philadelphia (3-4) continues preparations for the New York Giants (1-6) on Sunday.

• Josh Freeman has a concussion and Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he will likely turn the offense back over to Christian Ponder for the game against Green Bay on Sunday night.

• The St. Louis Rams signed Brady Quinn and Austin Davis, quickly adding quarterbacks after losing Sam Bradford to a season-ending injury.

Kellen Clemens, the backup the past two years, will make his first start since 2011 on Monday night against the Seahawks.

• The Jacksonville Jaguars are sticking with quarterback Chad Henne for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Coach Gus Bradley said the Jaguars “feel good about what Chad has done the last few weeks”.

• Browns backup quarterback Jason Campbell will replace struggling Brandon Weeden and start on Sunday in Kansas City.
