Report: Vick out for Sunday night

When the Philadelphia Eagles travel to San Francisco on Sunday night, quarterback Mike Vick won’t be there.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Vick will not play, due to the rib cartilage injury he suffered on Sunday against the Redskins.

Vick continues to be in significant pain; we reported last night that, even though initial x-rays were negative, Vick was experiencing significant pain, causing sources close to him to fear that he could miss some time.

It remains to be seen whether the Eagles will sign a temporary backup quarterback.  The only option behind Kevin Kolb is rookie Mike Kafka.

  1. 49ers should be favored at home, especially with Vick out. Take my word, the Niners will find another way to lose this one as well. 0-5. They lose to the fading Raiders and Singletary is done. Gruden ’11.

  2. What’s the difference? Every time they find a new weapon he gets injured. Weaver, Vick, McCoy. Just wasn’t meant to be this year. Throw Kolb to the wolves. We’ll either see him develop into a descent qb or get torn to pieces. Either way I just don’t care anymore. Reid needs to go and we need a coach with half a damn brain!

  3. Man…Ebersol and your NBC gang are probably jumping off bridges….0-4 49ers vs. the Kevin Kolb led Eagles up against the Yankees? I’ve been waiting all day for Sunday Night indeed…LOL.

    Such a beautiful paragraph. I bet you typed that with a big smile. Vick in significant pain just has a nice ring to it.
    Loved when Mr. Schefter said it will hurt when he breathes, it will hurt when he sleeps, and I missed the third part due my loud laughter.

  5. It must be impossible for him to sleep with that injury. I’m a Giant fan, but OUCH I kinda feel for the guy.

    That right there is a sad f-kin statement!! We annointed Kolb the starter over Donnie, now they’re not even sure they want him to play as Vicks BU!?!???!!??

  7. When Vick went down last Sunday, both my dogs barked for joy continuously. I never knew they were so much into football.
