Vick Expected To Sit Out Bucs Game


Michael Vick is expected to sit out Sunday’s game against the Bucs because of a left hamstring injury, a league source confirmed.

Adam Schefter was first with the report.

At his day-after press conference, Chip Kelly said Vick is day-to-day and hasn’t been ruled out.

Vick  sustained the injury in the second quarter against the Giants at the end of a  13-yard run. He stayed in for the remainder of the drive but was pulled in favor of Nick Foles early in the following series.

Foles went 16-of-25 for 197 with a pair of touchdown tosses in a 36-21 Eagles win.

“In this league I think you need two quarterbacks, and we were fortunate that we had Nick today,” said head coach Chip Kelly.

After the game, Vick said that he suffered a similar injury earlier in his career, and it forced him to sit out one week.

Assuming Vick does in fact miss this Sunday’s game, Foles will  get the nod in Tampa, the site of his lone NFL win as a starter.
