PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick continued to sit out practice Wednesday as the club prepares for the Falcons.

Vick missed last Sunday's 27-24 win over the 49ers after sustaining cartilage damage in his ribs during a Week 4 loss to the Washington Redskins. He hasn't thrown a football since suffering the injury.

If Vick can't go against his former team on Sunday, Kevin Kolb will make his second consecutive start. Kolb completed 21-of-31 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown against San Francisco.

"Michael Vick is still recovering from the cartilage injury. He's added a little bit of lifting into the rehab process," Eagles head coach Andy Reid said. "He's not throwing yet. We'll just see how he progresses this week; really a day-to-day thing. Kevin will take all of the reps, obviously, today."

Reid also said during his Wednesday press conference that tackle Jason Peters has a meniscus tear and will have surgery Thursday. Peters has been ruled out of Sunday's game. There is no timetable for his return.

Guard Todd Herremans (knee) and running back LeSean McCoy (rib) also missed practice but are expected to be back tomorrow. Wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Asante Samuel both practiced Wednesday after missing last week's game due to concussions.
