Michael Vick: Now His Hand Is Not Broken

First, Michael Vick has a broken hand. Then he is complaining about not getting calls from officials. Now, it turns out his hand is not broken after all.

Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said today that a CT scan revealed only bruising, and that if the swelling in the hand subsides enough this week Vick could play on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

Vick was apparently injured when hit by Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty after throwing a pass in the third quarter. Vick landed on the right hand, which he used to try and brace his fall as he hit the ground.

Only once in his career has Vick managed to play all 16 games in a season. If he is unable to start on Sunday the Eagles will have to choose between Vince Young and Mike Kafka.

Michael Vick To Miss At Least Three Games For Eagles: Report

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who broke his right (non-throwing) hand in Sunday’s 29-16 loss to the New York Giants, will miss at least three games, according to a report.

Vick broke the hand when he was hit by Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty after throwing a pass. Vick tried to return, but played just one series and came out of the game.

Vick complained after the game that he is not afforded the same protection by officials that other NFL quarterbacks receive.

There’s no reason for it. I’m not going to go into a big dissertation about why I’m not getting the calls. … The refs have to do their jobs as well. … Everybody seen the game. I’m on the ground constantly, all the time. All the highlights, watching film every time I throw the ball, I’m on the ground. "I don’t know why I don’t get the 15-yard penalties like everyone else does.

Either Vince Young or Mike Kafka will play in Vick’s place.


Giants 29, Eagles 16: Eli Manning Throws Four TD Passes In New York Victory

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – A maligned Giants defense peppered Michael Vick with hits, knocking him out with a broken hand, and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes Sunday to lead New York to a 29-16 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

After what happened last time these teams played, you might say the Giants owed their NFC East rivals one.

Manning threw two touchdown passes to Victor Cruz and one each to running backs Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. Cruz and Bradshaw reached the end zone in the fourth quarter for the Giants (2-1), who scored 14 unanswered points to win the game.

The Eagles (1-2) trailed 14-0 in the first quarter, then scored 16 straight points to take the lead but Vick came out of another game, giving way to Mike Kafka for the second week in a row.

Vick was knocked out of last Sunday’s game against the Falcons because of a concussion, but passed his tests during the week and started against New York.

Although he suffered several hits in a bruising first half against the Giants, including one from Rocky Bernard that slammed his helmet on the turf, Vick likely broke his hand on a hard hit by Chris Canty later in the game.

Kafka came in with 8:07 remaining in the game and threw an interception on a deep pass down the right sideline. The Eagles trailed 22-16 at the time.


Michael Vick Expected To Play Vs. Giants: Full Injury Report

Michael Vick is expected to play Sunday against the New York Giants despite being listed as "questionable" on the Philadelphia Eagles official injury report. Vick suffered a concussion Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, but reportedly has been cleared by a neurosurgeon.

"There's no reason to think I won't play on Sunday," Vick told Albert Breer of the NFL Network. 

The Eagles will not commit to Vick starting, with the team's head athletic trainer, Rick Burkholder saying only "I think we're headed in that direction,"

For the Giants, wide receiver Mario Manningham is uncertain for Sunday's game. He suffered a concussion Monday against the St. Louis Rams and coach Tom Coughlin said Friday that Manningham was still undergoing tests to determine his availability.

The Giants also re-signed veteran wide receiver Michael Clayton on Friday and placed wide receiver/kick returner Domenik Hixon on injured reserve. Hixon suffered a torn ACL Monday against the Rams.
