Vick Leaves With Leg Injury

vick092913_540Michael Vick was taken out of the game in the closing moments of the first half with a left hamstring injury. His return is questionable.

With about five minutes remaining in the second quarter, Vick was flushed out to his left and broke off a 13-yard run. The 33-year-old grabbed the back of his leg in the hamstring area after going out of bounds. He stayed in the game and completed the series, which resulted in a 29-yard Alex Henery field goal.

Vick had the left leg looked at by doctors on the sideline and made a quick trip to the trainers table, but re-took the field when the Eagles got the ball back. He was hit in the end zone on first down by Jason Pierre-Paul. The coaches decided to take Vick out at that point and replaced him with Nick Foles, who drove the team down the field to set up another Henery field goal before the break.

Linebacker Connor Barwin also exited with a leg injury. He was sent to the locker room for x-rays but returned in the second half.
