Updated: July 21, 2009, 11:16 PM ET Goodell, Vick could meet this week By Chris Mortensen and Sal Paolantonio
While NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would not define Tuesday what "near future" meant in terms of a decision on suspended quarterback Michael Vick
, sources say that a meeting with Vick could take place by Thursday or Friday, likely resulting in a conditional reinstatement next week.
Under a scenario involving conditional reinstatement, Goodell would reserve the right to extend or further define Vick's indefinite suspension but allow him to attend training camp if he is signed with an NFL team, sources said. A conclusive reinstatement, or additional suspension, for the 2009 season would be expected before Sept. 1, the first mandatory date for roster cuts. The Brian Kenny Show
