Suspended QB to be released from prison, serve rest of sentence from home Vick could begin football workouts this week - NFL- nbcsports.msnbc.com
Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick will begin football-related workouts after he is released from prison this week, NFL.com reported Sunday, citing an unnamed source familiar with the situation.
Vick will begin working with a trainer sometime after he is transferred to his home in Virginia, where he will be confined, NFL.com reported. Vick is set to be released from prison Wednesday and will complete his 23-month sentence for dogfighting-related offenses in July.
Vick will be put through conditioning and passing workouts, NFL.com reported.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Vick indefinitely after Vick's conviction. The two are expected to meet at some point, although a date has not been set. An NFL spokesman said Friday that Vick has yet to apply for reinstatement. When he does, Vick must show, in Goodell's words, "genuine remorse" before he can be reinstated.
