MICHAEL VICK LEAVES GAME INJURED IN EAGLES’ VICTORY
Fri, 24 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Michael Vick has required 4 medical tests thru 2 preseason games and has completed only 4 passes.

That is an ominous sign for the Eagles.

The 3-time Pro Bowl QB left Monday night’s win at New England after injuring his ribs on his 6th play. He lasted just 6 plays against Pittsburgh Steelers before being forced out by a injured left thumb.

X-rays on Vick’s ribs at the stadium were negative, and an MRI and CT scan revealed he doesn’t have any broken bones or fractured cartilage. Vick has a contusion of his ribs and of the soft tissue surrounding it. He also required X-rays on his thumb, and those tests were also negative.

It is probable Vick won’t take another snap till the Eagles (No. 8 in the AP Pro32) open the regular season at Cleveland on September 9.

”I’m just going to play it by ear,” Coach Andy Reid asserted after the victory over the Patriots. ”I’m not going to say anything about where we’re at with that right now.”

Considering Vick has been injury prone – he missed 3 games because of rib injuries in each of the past 2 seasons – it looks dangerous to play him in the last 2 preseason games.

Then again, Vick looks as though he needs work.

”If he did not play again (in the preseason) then he’d be OK,” Reid expounded. ”I would tell you I’d certainly like to see him play a bit more, but he’s got enough experience. We are not talking about a rookie. I believe he’ll probably be OK.”

Vick has led the offense to a single 1st down in 12 plays. The New England Patriots weren’t even using their starters against Philadelphia’s 1st-team offense.

”I think that we should have performed miles better than we did, especially since it was not their 1st string out there,” right tackle Todd Herremans asserted. ”We should have been able to run the ball far simpler earlier in the game.”

Vick was injured on a hard shot by LB Jermaine Cunningham after heaving a deep pass.

In hindsight, it was a busted play, and Vick probably should have dumped the ball off short instead of throwing deep and exposing himself to a big hit.

Vick promised throughout the summer to avoid the imprudent play that frequently has landed him in the trainer’s room. But he dove headfirst on a running play before getting knocked out of the game.

The thumb injury in the opener was on a freak play. He banged his thumb on center Jason Kelce’s helmet on his follow-through while making a pass. Betting lines

”I’m not that concerned apart from the fact that he is hurt,” Reid declared. ”I want to be sure that he heals up and gets back out there. And with some luck he isn’t getting hurt again.”

Rookie Nick Foles, a 3rd-round pick out of Arizona replaced Vick and had another impressive performance. Foles was 18 for 28 for 217 yards and 2 touchdown passes. Foles entered camp competing with Mike Kafka for the backup job.
