Michael Vick Injury: Eagles QB Leaves Game For X-Rays

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left tonight's preseason game with just over six minutes remaining in the first quarter after being hit by New England Patriot defensive end Jermaine Cunningham.

With the Eagles down 3-0, Vick dropped back and threw a deep pass off his back foot to wide receiver Desean Jackson. As he released the ball, Cunningham buried Vick with a helmet to the ribs. Vick was slow to get up, took a few steps, then went back to the ground clearly in pain. He walked off the field under his own power, but he has now walked to the locker room to undergo x-rays. Backup quarterback Nick Foles has now entered the game to lead the Philadelphia Eagle offense.

Vick had completed only one pass for five yards before exiting. His injury history is well documented, so the Eagle faithful collectively hold their breath as they wait for the results of the x-rays.
