Michael Vick will start Philadelphia's final preseason game because the Eagles are resting their starters.

Coach Andy Reid says Vick will play the first half against the New York Jets on Thursday night. Rookie Mike Kafka is slated to play the second half. Kevin Kolb will be on the sideline.

Vick, a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback with Atlanta, hasn't started since Dec. 31, 2006. He signed with the Eagles last summer after missing two seasons due to his imprisonment.

Vick has 133 yards passing, no touchdowns, three interceptions and a 33.7 quarterback rating this preseason.
