A judge wants to know more about suspended NFL star Michael Vick's bankruptcy plan, which is based on his goal of resuming his football career when he gets out of jail.
Vick is scheduled to make his first personal appearance in a Virginia bankruptcy court since filing his Chapter 11 case from prison.
Vick must testify at the hearing, which begins Thursday in Newport News. The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is serving a 23-month sentence for bankrolling a dogfighting ring. He's due to be released in July.
His plan would allow him to keep the first $750,000 of his salary. Creditors would get part of any additional earnings.
Earlier this week Vick agreed to pay the Falcons at least $6.5 million, moving closer to cutting ties with a team that doesn't want him.
