Michael Vick told the Eagles’ team website he will play Sunday against the 49ers no matter the status of his bruised right hand.

“I will be out there on Sunday, regardless,” Vick said, according to the team’s Twitter page. “There is a 100 percent chance I’m playing.”

Coach Andy Reid said earlier during his daily press conference that Vick will practice for the Eagles on Wednesday. The quarterback took part in the Eagles’ walk-through on Wednesday morning.

Reid said the swelling in Vick’s bruised right hand has lessened, but he wasn’t sure if Vick would take all first-team snaps on Wednesday.

Reid also said quarterback Vince Young is “100 percent”, but would not say if Young or Mike Kafka would be next in line behind Vick on the depth chart.

Reid said Monday that Vick’s availability would hinge on how quickly the swelling in his hand went down.
