Vick's still probable for Sunday

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Quarterback Michael Vick practiced Friday for the second consecutive day and likely will start when the Atlanta Falcons visit Buffalo this weekend.

Vick tweaked his left hamstring in the fourth quarter of last week's loss at Seattle and departed the game on each of the final two possessions.

The Falcons (1-1) hope to end a five-game losing streak on the road as they travel to face the Bills (1-1) for the first time in 10 years.

Atlanta defensive end Brady Smith (quadriceps), receiver Dez White (hamstring) and cornerback Allen Rossum (hamstring) remained questionable after missing practice.

Cornerback Jason Webster (knee) remained probable.

JAGUARS: In Jacksonville, Fla., quarterback Byron Leftwich and defensive end Reggie Hayward were upgraded to probable.

Both players had been listed as questionable on Wednesday's injury report. Leftwich injured his groin in last week's loss at Indianapolis while Hayward was down with a back injury.

EAGLES: In Philadelphia, Brian Westbrook missed practice with a knee injury, but is expected to start Philadelphia's game against Oakland.

BRONCOS: In Denver, the NFL fined Denver coach Mike Shanahan $20,000 for his criticism of the call that reversed Darrent Williams' punt return for a touchdown last week against San Diego.

GIANTS: In East Rutherford, N.J., New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan missed practice with a sore back and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game at San Diego.
