NFL News: Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick Out At Least One Week

The early season MVP will miss some time with damaged rib cartilage.

Vick appeared on the Bruce Smith Show on WXTG 102.1 out of Virgina Beach on Monday and said he would miss one, maybe two weeks with his injured cartilage.

Vick was injured late in the first quarter. He took two hard hits, getting sandwiched between Redskins defensive backs Kareem Moore and DeAngelo Hall after a 23 yard run to the Redskins 1. The play was negated by a holding penalty.

Eagles WR had warned Vick right before the play not to take hits, “I told him: ‘Don’t take no hits like that. We can’t afford you taking hits,'” Jackson said. “He’s just trying to make things happen.”
