Michael Vick Injury: Eagles QB X-Rays Negative

X-rays were negative on the ribs of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Vick left Monday's preseason game in the first quarter after being hit hard in the midsection by New England Patriot defensive end Jermaine Cunningham.

Vick was hit after throwing a deep pass to wide receiver DeSean Jackson that landed incomplete. Vick was slow to get up, took a few steps, then once again went to the ground before eventually walking off the field under his own power. Vick stood on the sidelines for a moment before finally heading to the locker room for x-rays.

This is very good news for the Philadelphia Eagles, who can ill-afford to lose their star quarterback. Vick has a full history of injuries, including to the ribs. He is not expected to return to tonight's contest.
