Michael Vick was knocked out of Sunday night’s game because of a concussion, coach Andy Reid announced after the game.
“He’s okay right now,” Reid said. “But he has a concussion. [Trainer Rick Burkholder] and the doctors will take care of it from there.”
The injury was initially called a neck injury. Vick was shown woozy, vomiting, and coughing up blood at various points on the sideline. Players generally miss a game after suffering a concussion, but we probably won’t get an update on Vick’s status for a few days.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer has an Eagles source that calls Vick’s concussion “slight.” Of course, there is no such thing as a mild concussion and “getting your bell rung” also usually means you suffered a concussion.
We would guess that Mike Kafka, not Vince Young, would be in line to start for Philly if Vick is out. Kafka knows the system better and Young hasn’t practiced fully in weeks.
