Vick exits with hand injury

AP

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.
