(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) — For the second straight game Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick’s final play has resulted in injury.
Vick injured his ribs in the Eagles 27-17 win over the New England Patriots when he was hit by Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham. The play, Vick’s sixth of the game, resulted in Vick being sent for X-rays. The X-rays turned out negative but Eagle’s receiver DeSean Jackson was worried it was much more when he saw Vick on the ground.
“In my mind I was like not again man,” Jackson said. “Last year we dealt a lot of times with him (Vick) getting injured and things like that. He’s such a huge part of our offense. Going back in there at halftime and checking him out was pretty cool. He was sore and bruised up a little bit and he was like, man, I can’t keep taking hits like that. So hopefully we can protect him up a little better than that.”
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said he’s not worried if Vick doesn’t play in the teams next game against Cleveland, but also commented that he would like to see him get some more game time.
