Michael Vick Injury Michael Vick's Injury Is To Rib Cartilage; Andy Reid Says QB Is 'Day-To-Day' The severity of Michael Vick's injury, which he suffered late in the first quarter of an Eagles loss to Washington, reportedly won't be known until at least Monday.
According to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, X-rays performed on Vick's ribs and chest came back negative, but the Philadelphia QB will have to go for an MRI Monday to determine the extent of any damage. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Sunday afternoon that the "speculation" on Vick was a hairline collarbone fracture, an injury that would sideline him for several weeks.
"He's got a sore chest is what I can tell you right now," Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said after the game.
On the play where Vick was injured, he scrambled 23 yards, but was sandwiched on a hard hit by Kareem Moore and DeAngelo Hall and was slow to get up. Kevin Kolb, the No. 1 QB when the season started, quickly warmed up and was in on the next play.
Vick's run was wiped out on a holding penalty by guard Max Jean-Gilles.
Vick declined to speak to the media after the game.
Kolb suffered a concussion in the season opener, allowing Vick to take over the job. Vick was sensational as the starter. He had 750 yards passing, six touchdowns and no interceptions, and had also run for 170 yards and one score in 10 quarters. For his efforts, Vick earned NFC offensive player of the month honors.
He was 5 for 7 for 49 yards passing and rushed three times for 17 yards against the Redskins, prior to leaving the game. Washington won 17-12 as Kolb's last-second pass to the end zone fell incomplete.
