Vick's Playing Status Still on Hold

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - An NFL spokesman says the league has yet to complete its investigation of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, and, reports to the contrary, is not ready to announce a suspension.

Greg Aiello says deputy attorney general Eric Holder is still gathering facts and "The commissioner has not made any decision."

Vick has been charged with operating a dogfighting ring on his Virginia property. A jury trial is scheduled to begin November 26th.

Commissioner Roger Goodell barred Vick from reporting to training camp last month while the investigation continued. He could use the NFL's personal conduct policy to suspend Vick for the 2007 season.
