Andy Reid’s dour mood at Monday’s press conference belied the relatively sunny news he offered to reporters.
Further tests by the Eagles revealed that Michael Vick does not have a fracture in his hand. Reid said that an x-ray taken Sunday was incorrect.
Vick was “relieved” by the news, although swelling in the hand has not gone down yet after a “contusion.” Reid wouldn’t say whether Vick could play this week, simply focusing on Vick’s swelling.
“Make sure you listen to the other guy’s questions,” Reid chided reporters after repeated attempts to get more information.
The Eagles also got good news about Jeremy Maclin’s hamstring. The team feared a serious injury, but an MRI revealed Maclin is “day-to-day” and the injury is not too serious.
Wideout Riley Cooper suffered a concussion against the Giants, so Steve Smith could have a bigger role this week.
