During 30 minutes or so when the switch on the Pittsburgh CBS affiliate had been flipped by the good folks at Time Warner from Steelers-Eagles to infomercials, I missed a fairly important play.
Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, who has vowed to do everything he can to stay healthy this season, banged his throwing hand off a helmet after throwing a pass early in the second quarter.
Vick left the game at that point, capping a pair of three-and-out drives.
UPDATE 9:26 p.m. ET: The Eagles have announced that X-rays on Vick’s left thumb were negative.
