Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left Thursday night’s preseason game early, after suffering a thumb injury to his throwing hand.

The other day in my Facebook stream (what, you think you get all of my content? I've got layers, man, layers), I mentioned that I was at the Eagles-Steelers preseason game. A guy that I haven't seen in 15 years then felt it was necessary to wish that someone would break Michael Vick's knees; this someone is, in fact, an Eagles fan, but "on strike" until Vick...

Kafka throws with his right hand, so he is still participating in a limited role during practice. Today he threw during individual drills and 7...
