No cartilage damage for Vick

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick reacts after being sacked by New England Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham during the first quarter of their preseason NFL football game in Foxborough Reuters

Mike Vick may not have avoided the (Kyle) Love Train, but Vick has dodged a bullet.  (OK, it was actually Jermaine Cunningham who hit Vick.  But I like the play on words enough to keep it in there.)

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, diagnostic testing showed no cartilage damage within Vick’s rib cage after Monday night’s monster hit.

X-rays taken last night also were negative for any broken ribs.

Though Vick won’t play on Friday night when the Eagles visit the Browns, he’s fully expected to suit up on September 9 when . . . the Eagles visit the Browns.

    He wouldn’t have played vs. the Browns on Friday regardless.

    Gronk’s call to “Get him a bodybag!” goes unfulfilled.

    As an Eagles fan I am ready to move on. Start Foles and let him learn to play. He has potential. I am tired of Vick’s style. I want a QB who knows how to get rid of the ball and can make it longer then one quarter in a pre-season game.

    Tebow > Vick

    I am an Eagles fan, hope he is ok. But, but he hasn’t made it through a quarter so far, in the 2012 ramp up. I am kinda getting tired of him walking off the feild next to a trainer. He and the team claim he is a competitor and warrior on the feild. He seems more like a guy fighting to stay on workmans comp. Go ahead rest him til the regular season. Foles will get reps, and the Redskins will not be the only nfc east team with a rookie starting qb this season. No way Vick makes it through 64 quarters this season.

    Vick, I’m giving you 2012, but i’m also getting my Foles ’13 bumper sticker ready.

    Why would the same opponents be scheduled for the week 3 of the preseason and week 1 of the regular season? ugh

  15. dannythebisforbeast says: Aug 21, 2012 10:44 PM

    Simple. Older you get more things hurt and longer it takes to heal. His style not made for him to last into mid 30’s. Think his best is behind him.

    Vick or no Vick the eagles will find away to mess it up. Go Giants!
