Philadelphia, we have a problem.
It may be “just” the preseason, but after Mike Vick suffered his second injury in as many preseason games you really start to worry. Every conversation about the Eagles chances this season involve some variation of the phrase, “IF Mike Vick stays healthy.” As he hasn’t been able to make it through even two preseason games without injury it’s safe to assume that there is no way he can make it through a full season.
So what now?
Vick suffered a rib injury after taking a hit by New England LB Jermaine Cunningham in the first quarter. He got up on his own accord and went to the locker room for an x-ray. That’s right, his second set of those in two weeks as well, with the concern in the August 9 game against the Steelers being the extent of damage to his thumb after it hit center Jason Kelce’s helmet.
Thankfully, the tests were negative for Vick, indicating that there is no fracture on his ribs. Head coach Andy Reid said after the game that Vick was so...

It's a Wednesday evening, you're not ready to go to bed yet, but what should you do? Sure, you could sit down and watch a little ESPN or maybe Comedy Central, but none of that sounds very entertaining.
I have a suggestion. How about you play a game of Bingo? Michael Vick injury Bingo to be exact.
The above Bingo board was created by Robert Littal.
Michael Vick has always been injury prone. The way that he plays the game somewhat dictates that as does his stature. As electrifying as he can be to watch, there’s years of tape on him for defenses to understand how to play him.
This point is less about packages and schemes and more about Vick’s habits and routines.
His spin move, his shoulder shimmy and even his ankle dance...
Thanks to our friend at Black Sports Online we caught wind of a brand new game that’s hit the internet. It’s the first official Michael Vick injury Bingo game.
While it’s not funny when any NFL player get’s injured, we thought this was quite entertaining. We wish Vick a successful and healthy season.
Great, G2 just happened Juan…
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that quarterback Micheal Vick suffered a rib injury during Monday night’s preseason game. He’ll undergo an MRI and CT scan on Tuesday.

No matter your personal feelings about Michael Vick, there’s one thing we can all agree on: the guy is about as injury prone an NFL QB as we’ve ever seen.
At just 6’0″ and 215 lbs, Vick is certainly one of the more electrifying athletes in the game, but his relatively small stature (and penchant for leaving the pocket) has...
Michael Vick gets crushed by Patriots Jermaine Cunningham 2012 (HD) (by BenjiPreseason)
When it's solid advice to tell an NFL quarterback to be more like Donovan McNabb, that quarterback must be in serious trouble. Michael Vick is. The Eagles' speedy passer hasn't even reached the regular season yet, and he's already dealing with significant pain, if not a sidelining injury. Why? Because he finds no problem in risking his season on scampers and heaves...
8 a.m. ET: In their first preseason game of the year, Tom Brady and the Patriots offense looked lost. But while the offensive unit managed just seven points en route to a 7-6 win, the defense far exceeded expectations. Jerod Mayo, Patrick Chung and Co. confused the Saints all night, and rookie defensive end Chandler Jones looked like an unstoppable force off the edge. But they'...
Nick Foles will start Friday’s preseason game for the Philadelphia Eagles, filling in for Michael Vick. While Vick appears to be fine, the Eagles simply don’t want to risk any further injury in the final two preseason games.
On Friday, the Eagles will fave the Browns, who have allowed just 329 through the air and have picked off five passes through two games, so this may actually...
