Another week, another Vick injury

San Francisco 49ers v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

When discussing last week the status of Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, who emerged from a loss to the Giants in Week Three with a hand contusion, I suggested that:  (1) he’d play against the 49ers in Week Four; and (2) we’d then be talking about whether some new injury would affect him in Week Five.

I was joking, sort of.

Vick said after Sunday’s loss to the Niners, in which he threw for a career-high 416 yards despite presiding over the squandering of a 20-point lead, that at one point during the first half the middle finger on his left (throwing) hand “popped out of place.”

Vick remained in the game.

“I was just determined to finish the game, regardless of how I had to do it,” Vick said, via PhillySportsDaily.com.  “And I did it.  I wish the outcome could have been a little bit different but it is what it is.”

Though it appears that the injury won’t affect Vick going forward, monitoring Vick’s health has become a weekly endeavor.  It seems only a matter of time before he misses time.

This week, the Eagles go to Buffalo.  Then, Philly returns to FedEx Field, the site of Vick’s Monday night game for the ages in 2010, to face a Redskins team that has 13 full days to prepare.

    Did the finger pop out of place from pointing at the score board or flipping off the fans?

    I just keep waiting for the career ending one.

    Anyone else Tired of Vick??

    Vick and is so called injuries are just another excuse from him for sucken, and not having the fig’s to man-up and admit that the other teams have your number………

  5. bnwillard says: Oct 3, 2011 10:27 AM

    His ego is bruised too, does that count? Poor guy, he actually thinks people care about “how he be fillin”

  6. tv426 says: Oct 3, 2011 10:28 AM

    Why is Vick suddenly the focus of nearly all QB talk in the media? I think he has supplanted Romo for the title of most over-hyped QB in the league.

    We only hear about this ” injury ” after the game…..This guy is the biggest whiner, let me guess the ” white man ” did it ??
    Youre nothing more than a Beocth and a Fraud !!!
    I cant wait till your ” boys ” get out of the slammer……:)

  8. scudbot says: Oct 3, 2011 10:35 AM

    Yeah, why worry about being hobbled by a little thing like a bad finger on my passing hand. I wanted to stay in. Being successful in the red zone isn’t all that important to me anyway. I played lights out.

  9. forthelove says: Oct 3, 2011 10:43 AM

    I guess that suspect line is taking it’s toll. When a-certain-sports-channel-that-will-go-unnamed was annointing them offseason champs, PFT commenters were pointing out left and right that the O-line and the LBs would be the Achilles heel.

    Wrong re: week six game. Eagles go to DC, play at 1pm.

  11. lbdpatch says: Oct 3, 2011 10:47 AM

    IF ANY OF YOU IDIOTS EVEN WATCHED THE GAME YESTERDAY VICK HAD A GOOD DAY. HIS NUMBERS WERE BETTER THAN FLACCO,BIG BEN,ROMO,SANCHEZ,MANNING,RYAN,RIVERS, iT WAS THE NO SHOW DEFENSE THAT BLEW THE GAME.

  12. lbdpatch says: Oct 3, 2011 10:51 AM

    As far as the cowboys. Last week you all saying how great Romo was. Not One touchdown last week. without bryant they don’t have an offense.. yesterday proved that

  13. jpb12 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:00 AM

    No punctured lung? Broken rib?

  14. deadmanwalking47 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:09 AM

    Vick had an awful case of pms yesterday to go along with his growing list of painful injuries! could’nt happen to a more responsible pit bull owner!

    1-3. And I don’t have use capitals to try to make my point.

  17. scudbot says: Oct 3, 2011 11:13 AM

    lbdpatch, I know you’re in pain. What Eagles fan wouldn’t be? But screaming doesn’t help. Nor does hero worshipping a 1-3 QB who can’t quite get it done enough in the red zone.

  18. 44kyle says: Oct 3, 2011 11:17 AM

    “but it is what it is.”
    ==================

    Is it?

  19. schmitty2 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:19 AM

    So, he stays in the game with an injured finger on his THROWING hand but came out last week for a bruise on his NON THROWING hand? WTH?

  20. pigskinswag says: Oct 3, 2011 11:24 AM

    Good thing Vick finished the game. We wouldn’t want Vince Young’s impostor trying to enter the game.

    May I remind all you folks, THE EAGLES STILL LOST THE GAME. I will take Eli with 250 to 275 yards pr game and our running game any day.

    GO BIG BLUE

    My middle finger “popped out of place” a few times while watching the Vikings.

  23. dcowboyfan says: Oct 3, 2011 11:43 AM

    lbdpatch……..
    You are obviously a Pathetic Eagles fan !!!
    Face facts, you are stuck with a $ 100 million dollar fraud !!!!

    Would he be revealing his ” weekly ” injury if they had won the game ??
    All the Dream Team has done is beaten a 0-4 Rams team !!!!!
    All that money, all the hype….and still will NEVER win a Lombardi Trophy !!!

    Why would you think that, after all the “2nd in MVP voting”, “Dream Team” and $100 million contract hoopla?

  25. howley1 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:47 AM

    As far as the cowboys. Last week you all saying how great Romo was. Not One touchdown last week. without bryant they don’t have an offense.. yesterday proved that

    Yeah, take away the top 2 WRs on any team and they are likely to look pretty bad on O.

  26. howley1 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:49 AM

    So, he stays in the game with an injured finger on his THROWING hand but came out last week for a bruise on his NON THROWING hand? WTH?

    ———————–

    There wasn’t a damn thing wrong with his hand last week, he just quit on his team. They put a CAST on a BRUISE? Please. They put a cast on it so nobody could see how swollen it WASN’T. He was pulling his pants up with that hand as he walked off the field!

  27. drmonkeyarmy says: Oct 3, 2011 11:52 AM

    Again people, the problem with the Eagles is not Michael Vick. It is horrid defense and asinine play calling.

  28. kevpft says: Oct 3, 2011 11:53 AM

    Vick’s record as starter for the Eagles: 9-7.

    McNabb’s record in his last 16 games with the Eagles: 10-6.

    Vick’s last six games: 1-5.

    Ruh-roh…

  29. howley1 says: Oct 3, 2011 11:55 AM

    —————-

    Didn’t need one to beat the 49ers. Then again the D didn’t allow 3 TDs. With all that money spent the Eagles have no defense. Period. And they prove it week after week.

  30. diablito0402 says: Oct 3, 2011 12:07 PM

    Haha vick might have had a good game, and vick apologists blame it on the defense,, vick should of scored more with the offense, dont leave the game to that dream team defense,,,

  31. vickspreadherpes says: Oct 3, 2011 12:13 PM

    This guy is the most over-hyped player in NFL history.

    He is a convicted, sadistic, sociopath that tortured defenseless, crying animals for enjoyment, spread incurable disease to unsuspecting humans & is a pathological liar.

    He has never had back to back winning seasons.

    He has never delivered in the playoffs.

    He’s got a 70 career passer rating.

    He never stops complaining & this BS about his finger is to counter people coming to the realization last week that he is a injury prone player who’s name should be Michelle.

    Once again the over-hyped Mike Vick is telling us how tough he is, staying in with his dislocated finger.

    Eagle fans deserve this guy & they also deserve “father of the year” Andy Reid. What a waste they both are.

  32. mancave001 says: Oct 3, 2011 12:20 PM

    Vick had a career day. He was not the problem.

  33. 2sausage11 says: Oct 3, 2011 1:04 PM

    Get rid of Vick and Andy Reid and you might go someplace. They are both over hyped POS

    You dont need either when the refs hand you the game. While you could certainly apply the rule in question, it was clear to everyone that Cruz tripped and fell. The only reason he didn’t make a football move after that was because the Cardinals hammered him so he couldn’t recover the ball.

    I’m shocked they didn’t add another 15 yards for hitting a defenseless receiver.

    I give up. Having a rational debate on this blog is impossible. It devolves into crap immediately.

  38. chickenwangstaff says: Oct 3, 2011 2:01 PM

    Just like Venus and Serena Williams, you can count on a Vick “injury” when things aren’t going well.

  39. vickspreadherpes says: Oct 3, 2011 3:43 PM

    @polishrod

    Obvious to everyone huh?? Everyone that lives in Filthadelphia you mean.

    Just as it’s so obvious to all Eagle fans that Vick is getting hit late.

    There are logical knowledgeable NFL fans, then there’s Eagle fans.
