Eskin: Michael Vick likely out against Buccaneers, maybe longer

New, comments

A report from Howard Eskin indicates that Eagles QB Michael Vick could miss a game or two.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Michael Vick suffered a hamstring injury in the Eagles 36-21 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. Vick left the game late in the first half and was replaced by backup quarterback Nick Foles. Foles played well in Vick's absence and helped lead the Eagles to their second victory of the 2013 season.

After the game, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly stated that if Vick is healthy, he is still the Eagles starting QB.

However, Vick may not be healthy and ready to play next week. A report from Howard Eskin:

Take the report for what it's worth for now. If it's true, it means Nick Foles will start against the Buccaneers on 10/13 and possibly against the Cowboys on 10/20 if Vick isn't healthy by then.

This will certainly be a situation to monitor as the week progresses.
