EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Michael Vick has scored his first NFL touchdown since the 2006 season, giving the Philadelphia Eagles a 14-7 lead over the New York Jets early in the second quarter.
Playing in his second game with the Eagles, Vick lined up at quarterback, faked a handoff and ran up the middle from 2 yards out 25 seconds into the quarter Thursday night.
He found out from Commissioner Roger Goodell a few hours before the game that he'll be fully reinstated in week 3. The former Atlanta Falcons star was released from Federal custody July 20 after serving 18 months of a 23-month sentence for his role in operating a dogfighting ring.
He'll be eligible to play in Philadelphia's game against Kansas City on Sept. 27.
