Vick's Status Uncertain
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick hopes to miss no longer than two weeks with a rib cartilage injury suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Redskins. Speaking to a Virginia Beach radio station this week, Vick said there is cartilage damage in addition to a small fracture in his rib area, but that he is “feeling well.” He added the most effective remedy for the injury is rest. An MRI taken Monday showed the damage, but did not reveal any problems with the bones in the area. Eagles head coach Andy Reid said Vick is “day-to-day and week-to-week,” and made no determination of Vick’s status for Philadelphia’s game at San Francisco this Sunday night. Assuming Vick is unable to go, Kevin Kolb would retake the starting job for the first time since leaving the Eagles’ week one game with a concussion. Kolb relieved Vick after the injury last Sunday and put up decent numbers, but led the team to only one touchdown as the Eagles lost 17-12.
