Vick exits with hand injury


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.
