BLACKSBURG - Former Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Vick "is expected to attend the Virginia Tech/Syracuse game," according to Frank Kleha in the Atlanta Falcons public relations department.

Kleha told a member of the Tech sports information staff Monday that Vick "was pretty sure he was going to go home" to Newport News, Va., this weekend. Vick said if he does go home, he was going to make it to Blacksburg for the game.

Vick and the Falcons are idle this weekend after downing New Orleans, 20-13, Sunday. So far, Vick, the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, is 14-of-24 passing for 213 yards and has rushed for 73 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown.
