Oprah won't be interviewing Vick after all (Chris Pizzello/AP)

CHICAGO — Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will not be appearing on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” after all.

A show spokesman said Wednesday representatives of the NFL star called late Tuesday to cancel his appearance for personal reasons. The daytime talk show host’s interview with Vick was set to air Thursday, Feb. 24.

The interview was to cover Vick’s time in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his return to the NFL.

Vick missed two seasons and served 18 months in federal prison for a dogfighting operation based on his property in Surry County, Va.

He was reinstated to the NFL for the 2009 season and has been doing public service work, including with the Humane Society.

Do you think Vick was pressured by the Eagles not to do the interview? They put the franchise tag on him Monday and he cancels on Oprah Tuesday? #imjuststayin… because really, who flakes on Oprah??? lol.
