Michael Vick has rib cartilage injury
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who left Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins in the first half, has a rib cartilage injury, according to head coach Andy Reid. The injury is to Vick’s second and third (upper rib area) ribs. Vick’s status for Sunday night’s game at the San Francisco 49ers won’t be known until later this week, but Reid said Vick was very sore on Monday morning.
Starting RB LeSean McCoy has a rib fracture, Reid said. His status as well for Sunday’s game isn’t known. McCoy was injured in the first half against Washington, but was able to play through the injury. Should McCoy not be able to play this week, RB Mike Bell would start.
Reid also said rookie WR Riley Cooper and starting CB Asante Samuel suffered mild concussions. Both players are being evaluated on Monday.
Philadelphia only has four receivers on their active roster, so it’s possible that they consider re-signing veteran WR Kelley Washington, who was released on Sept. 4.
