PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, is hopeful he'll be able to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Vick was injured in Philadelphia's first matchup with the Giants this season, a 36-21 win on Oct. 6. The Eagles have gone 1-1 without him.

''I'm optimistic about it,'' Vick said after practicing Tuesday. ''I've got a good chance.''

Nick Foles replaced him just before halftime vs. New York, and threw two touchdowns. He then threw three more touchdowns and ran for another when the Eagles beat the Buccaneers 31-20 Oct. 13. But Foles threw for just 80 yards in three quarters before suffering a concussion in a 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Philadelphia (3-4) would turn to rookie Matt Barkley if neither Vick nor Foles can play Sunday.
