Coach Andy Reid confirmed Wednesday through the team that Vick will be in the lineup for Monday night's game in New Orleans. Because the team had a scheduled day off Wednesday, Reid will not address the media until Thursday morning.

After Sunday's 30-17 loss to Atlanta - the Eagles' third consecutive defeat - Vick hinted that Reid was considering benching him in favor of rookie Nick Foles, a third-round draft pick out of the University of Arizona. Reid said only that he would evaluate the situation.

Apparently, he determined that Vick gives the Eagles their best chance of beating the Saints, despite Vick's NFC-high 13 turnovers. He has thrown eight interceptions and lost five fumbles.
