Vick Ordered To Stay Away From Falcons Camp

NEW YORK (AP) -- Michael Vick has been ordered by commissioner Roger Goodell to stay away from the Atlanta Falcons' training camp until the league reviews the dogfighting charges against him.

Goodell says he has a "responsibility" to enforce NFL personal conduct policies. He says he respects Vick's right to defend himself in court but the league has an obligation to conduct its own review of Vick's latest actions.

Vick is scheduled to be in court in Richmond, Virginia, Thursday for bond hearings and arraignments on charges he sponsored a dogfighting operation. Vick and three co-defendants will be asked to enter pleas to the felony charges, and a date for the federal
trial likely will be set during the arraignment.

The NFL says Vick would get his preseason pay. But Goodell says he told the Falcons to withhold any disciplinary action of heir own until the league's review was completed.

Animal-rights advocates and their dogs gathered Monday outside Atlanta Falcons headquarters, calling for Vick's suspension following his indictment.
